SHOULD I RING IN THE NEW YEAR IN SEQUINS OR SATIN

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a sequined outfit to ring in the New Year

2020 is coming to an end!!! Can I get a hallelujah, can I get an amen? That is the first thing that came to mind when I saw this photo. I had big plans to bring in the New Year, but those plans got thrown to the curve when COVID-19 reared its ugly head. Many plans have been delayed or canceled this year, and many people have gotten sick or died from this virus. But, hopefully, the end is in sight soon, and we will once again be able to celebrate and give each other hugs. Since I wasn’t going to get to watch the real ball drop in Times Square this year, I decided to let it drop in my living room instead. This was the outfit that I “intended” to wear for New Year’s Eve, but keep reading to see the outfit I ended up wearing instead.

I’ve assumed my Super Woman pose for this photo to usher in the New Year with confidence and style. I’ve never dressed in head to toe sequins before, but it was a lot of fun. This outfit sure did get Joe’s attention when I walked through the kitchen. Lol! His comment… “who are you, and what have you done with my wife?”

I am a BLING girl at heart. I love shiny objects and anything that sparkles. So, back a couple of months ago, I had high hopes of being able to celebrate New Year’s Eve in sparkly items, so I set out to find just the right things. Boy, did I hit the motherload when it comes to sparkle!!!

This silver v-neck cami is lightweight and flowy, and it also has adjustable straps, which I love. I love how it fits, and it is plenty roomy without showing any of my lumps. I ordered a large, and it was easy to adjust for just the right fit since it has adjustable straps. I do have a couple of warnings associated with this top. If you are not wearing something like a jacket or a cardigan, then the sequins can scratch the inside of your arm. That is normal with sequin clothing. The second warning comes if you need to return the item. When you place an order from Express, you need to pay attention to the description. If says “marketplace,” that means that the item is from a 3rd party vendor (similar to Amazon); you need to contact the 3rd party to get the return label. It is just an extra hoop that you need to jump through. However, I love this cami, so I have no plans to send it back.

This black sequin duster jacket really caught my eye. As if a sequin cami and joggers weren’t enough, this duster jacket is the icing on the cake. I debated whether I was wearing this duster or a velvet blazer and finally decided, what the heck? New Year’s Eve is all about over the top, so this is the time to Go For It!

I am wearing a medium in the duster, and it is a tad large on me, but nothing huge. Would this be something that I could wear again? Sure, you could. At least once a year, right? Lol! This would also be cute for any fancy affair, such as a party or event that is black tie. I think this would look gorgeous over a black dress with some silver high heels. But, it would also look nice with a white t-shirt and jeans for a class reunion. The black is already sold out, but the silver is still available if you like the look.

I have had sequin pants before, but they were so stiff that I couldn’t sit in them. I hated them, so I was so afraid that these would be the same, but they aren’t. These sequin ankle leggings are very flexible and soft on the inside. They are high waisted, and they stayed put when I sat down. I really like the way these fit and the way that they look on me. I am wearing a medium in these leggings, and I think that they run true to size.

Here are a lot of other sequined items that I really like. I want to be ready to party like it’s 1999 when this pandemic is finally over.

This is the outfit that I opted to wear for New Year’s Eve instead of the blingy sequined one. I have to admit that this outfit is much more comfortable, and I think it is just as cute.

Joe had already left the house before I changed into this outfit, but I am willing to bet that it will get the stamp of approval from him also. This satin long sleeve pajama set from Soma is everything that you would expect and more. It feels so nice and silky against your skin, and you will feel like a million bucks wearing this. It has a drawstring waist, and the pants are plenty long. I am 5’6″ tall, and I have a hard time finding pants that don’t strike me at the ankle. I also love that the pants have pockets!!! Woohoo! I am a huge fan of pockets in pants, even if they are pajamas. I am wearing a medium in this set, and it fits me great. The material is not clingy, so you don’t have to worry about showing those pesky rolls that might be leftover from Thanksgiving and Christmas. I also have the blue set below. I love having some special PJs to get out for occasions like Valentine’s Day, Birthday, Anniversary, and days that end with a y. Lol!

Here is to all of you who have decided to take me up on my offer with RF. Today is the last day to start on a new skincare routine that can help you age backward. Don’t take my word for it; let’s walk down memory lane.

I have TWO specials that will run until the end of the year. These specials are for NEW Preferred Customers only.

That is a saving worth $70.00!!! The second special is on Lash Boost. For NEW Preferred Customers only, purchase Lash Boost and get a 39.00 refund from ME!

To place an order as a new preferred customer, go HERE and put your products in your cart. If you are unsure about which regimen you need, then take the Solutions Tool first to see what is recommended. The only thing that I would suggest is, if you have sensitive skin, list that first. I don’t want you getting a product that might irritate your skin. Go to checkout and click the box JOIN PC PERKS. You will get 10% off of the retail price and FREE shipping, plus qualify for my FREE product gift or reimbursement. Then, fill out the billing and shipping information and click SUBMIT ORDER.

      You look amazing in the sequin outfit! Reminds me of a gold sequin v-neck sleeveless top I wore with black flowy pants in the Dominican Republic for New Year’s Eve in 2018. Looking forward to travel and sequins again one of these days!! Probably should have put on the sequin top today, but went with pj’s this year too… Ready for 2021! Thank you for your blog!

      That duster is sure a stunner! It would look great with jeans and a tee! Those spray pieces are old but they came from Raz imports.
