So when it comes to sequins its hard to keep my inner drag queen under control. When I see them, I want to break all fashion rules and wear a full Liza Minnelli glam pantsuit. It seems that when it comes to sequins there is an extreme binary of either being a grandma sequin applique sweatshirt or stripper mesh sequin star pasties. There typically isn’t much in between. It can be even more difficult to find anything sequin that is classy — and doesn’t look like a high school prom dress. So these are the good, the bad, and the ugly of the sequin world. Check it out.

The Good:

I am absolutely obsessed with this  dress and the website! This dress is so unique, flirty, and fun while still holding on to an element of class. The gathered skirt and sequined waistband totally break the sequin mold. The ruffled rosettes add to the texture and formulate an interesting and unconventional neckline.

The website eshakti is 50% of why this dress is so amazing. This website is built on the belief that clothes should be created for individuals regardless of their size because “god” made everyone beautiful. Because of this, every dress is customizable from colors to hem lengths to straps. It is almost guaranteed that whatever you order will be just what you are looking for and will look fabulous on you.

The website has many beautiful and elegant sequined dresses but I chose to display this one in particularly because it is my favorite. I can see myself rocking it with some gladiators and a clutch at a cocktail party or a swanky affair uptown.
