like a diamond

Happy New Year's Eve! We're being awesome and staying in to eat homemade tiramisu and watch movies instead of going out, so I wore my sparkles to work instead. I've been wanting to try the sparkly tank/collared shirt/blazer look ever since I pinned this look when I first joined Pinterest. I was double inspired when Jessica instagrammed a dressing room picture with a similar look. Although I've had this tank for over a year, I've only worn it a few select times because really, how often can you get away with a sequin covered torso?

I just received this polka dot popover from J. Crew Factory and I'm really excited about it - I think it'll quickly become a favorite in my closet. I ordered it in 2 different sizes and have decided to keep the large. If you are interested, I also have a medium and would be willing to sell it to you for the price I paid ($32 which includes shipping). It is currently $48.50 online. If not, I'll return it back to our nearest factory store but thought I would put it out there since it's currently $20 more expensive than what I got it for. Just send me an email at fhasselhof (at) gmail (dot) com if you're interested!  Sold!

  1. I got my popover 2weeks ago, and I think it's going to be a favorite, especially in spring. I have a J Crew mint sequined tank I may be pairing with it. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I stared at the sequin top for way too long trying to figure out what it was when I should have just read, lol! I like this a lot, but sequins are always a plus.

  5. Super cute and casual New Year look! I love sequins (I must have been a prom queen in a former life!). Happy New Year! :)

  6. Love this look! The layering with different textures/patterns really works..I need to try this! (And I didn't realize that the J Crew polka dot top doesn't have exposed buttons so you don't have to layer a tank over it to smooth it out under a sweater- score!) Happy 2013!

    1. haha, yes, no in between tank this time! Plus the sequin top is thick enough that I dont' think it would be necessary either way. Happy New Year :)

  7. Love this look, it's a great way to expand the "usefulness" of a sequined tank and it looks totally work appropriate. Happy New Year 2013!

  29. I love this outfit and totally copy-catted it today. Except in bright primary colors because apparently that's the only way I know how to dress myself ;-) Thanks for sharing! I've seriously been stumped on how to wear my sequined tank for a while now

  32. So adorable and NYE perfect! Also, I had to get a pair of distressed jeans because I obsess over this pair you wear literally every time you wear them. So... my December budget curses you, haha :)
