Sequin skirts....trickier than I thought.  Keep reading to see my (many) iterations, not all of them good. SIGH. The Flirt Hey baby. Now this outfit, I like.  The texture of the cozy sweater contrasted with the shiny sequins, the sharp booties, the flecks of white in the tights - it all works.   Even the mismatched sequin skirt/bag thing is alright.  the kids are alright....   // JavaScript is...
Originally published in December 2014, this post has been updated for Holiday Season 2015.   We're still loving sequin leggings this year, so this article is as relevant as ever.  We've updated it with all new links, shoppable boutique and even a few new pics.  Enjoy!  I'm still loving the sequin leggings.  And the GOOD news is that this year they're available...
When Goodnight Macaroon first reached out, I guess I was expecting an online children's bookstore.  Imagine my surprise and delight when I realized that Goodnight Macaroon is actually a very clever name for an online boutique specializing in of-the-minute clothing (at reasonable prices). This jacket, for example, is just the thing to dress up a turtleneck/graphic tee situation.  (See?  I promised I'd work...
Despite the decidedly glam bent holiday trends are taking, I'm still a big (HUGE) fan of denim.  And with all of the glitzy accoutrements available for the chic party-goer, denim is the perfect foil for those of us who like their style with a heavy dose of insouciance.  (C'est moi.) So I've been messing around, trying to figure out a fresh...
  Franklin Square is one of our favorite places to take the kids - there's a decent playground, mini golf, and a gorgeous carousel.  And it's walking distance to some of our favorite Chinatown restaurants in Philly.  (Or try a burger at the Square - they're surprisingly good.) But for the holidays, Franklin Square has created some sort of holiday extravaganza that is simply...
 (photo credit: J. Birdie Photography) Just like sequins, feathers and leather, I've always been drawn to (faux) fur.  RAWR.  Lucky for me, this is a perfect time of year to find some awesome faux fur pieces, even though I bought that vest I'm wearing at the summer Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Scarves, coats, gloves, vests, boot covers, earmuffs . . . even...
Last year I bought this sequin miniskirt because I LOVED it.  When I got it home, I tried it on and STILL loved it.  But then it hung in my closet.  All. Year.  Never wore it.  Not once.  Am I the only one this happens to?  You see something you love, you buy it, then . . . never...
    If there's one thing you can count on, when it's time to get all fancy, I'll wear a graphic tee.  Aaaaand probably a puffer. Puffer coats and playground smolder* - that's kinda my specialty.  (*Phrase coined by Tysie.  Who has a pretty mean playground smolder herself.) But seriously these pants.  And the shoes.  And, of course, the puffer (but that might just...
Bring on the sparkle, Babes.  This holiday season is all about maximum embellishment, glitz and glam. I don't often talk about trends (really, they barely matter at all) but this is the year of "dressing dangerously" (thank you, Vogue) so the trend of Fancy-Fancy is on like King Kong.  So if you are excitedly pulling out your feather mini to pair with your sequin...
Did you guys DIE over my sister's "nursing-friendly", sequin mini dress?  So freaking hot, right?  But she comes by the glam honestly  - even at three she would do just. about. anything. for a copy of Bride magazine.  My 8 year old tomboy self thought she was SO WEIRD.   I mean OK - nowadays I love a sequin as much...
