Studio 54! Wish we were there...

Gisela and I have been obsessing over sequins for quite sometime, maybe even before sequins became a trend these past seasons. Both of us have always been inspired by our mothers who back in the Studio 54 days dolled themselves up in sequined and beaded numbers. I have been collecting sequined pieces since my early years shopping at Goodwill. Christopher Decardin went crazy for the Spring 09 collection of Balmain and so did we! We are bringing all our sequins out and going to start glitzying the streets, day or night!


We saw Daria wearing an amazing black sequin Balmain dress at the Met Gala. We thought, let's reprise the Daria look asap! I thought her piece looks very similar to mine, the only thing is that mine is longer and a little bit more conservative.Not sure if I should keep as is or cut it and make it into two pieces. The bottom part of the dress is a flounce skirt and the top has the exagerrated 80's shoulders we are all digging.I'm thinking if split up, both the top and bottom can make interesting separate, what do you think?

  2. Both of you guys look super-hot! I love how you can walk into any Goodwill and come out with a 'Balmain' sequin dress for less than $5 bucks. It's recession shopping at it's best.

  8. Thanks for the comment!
    Also - the dress looks great in both of you! Personally, I'd make it two seperate pieces so that way you can get more wear out of it but can still put them together.
    Can't believe it's goodwill!

  16. Awesome pieces! I love sequins as well and I think you guys replicated Daria's look so well. Maury, I would keep the piece as it is. It looks pretty versatile right now, but then again, if you have a better idea what to do with it, feel free and of course post pics if you do get something else done :) Gisela, love how you turned a jacket into a dress - I wouldn't have guessed, without the caption!
