I've been a fan of sparkly, shiny things for as long as I can remember. Growing up I had a penchant for glittery jelly shoes, glistening Lisa Frank school supplies, and mom's shiny red lipstick. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when Pennington's sent me a sequined top from their holiday 2011 collection. The glitzy top, which comes in sizes 14 - 32, is available on penningtons.com in three different colors.
I'm very happy with the quality of the top. Sometimes sequins are poorly applied or itchy on the skin, but Pennington's did a great job on the application and lining of the top. Please believe there are no loose sequins or itchy skin here! I'm also really happy the top arrived just in time for Downtown Reedley's Ladies' Night Out.
As some of you may know, I'm Downtown Reedley's Social Media Manager. Each spring and fall we create a night devoted to women and their girlfriends. There's shopping, giveaways, food, wine, and martinis (my favorite part of the night, of course). This fall's theme was "Flaunt Your Wild Side," which called for animal print, feather boas, and live animals. Yup, a real zebra, wolf, and skunk were parading throughout downtown. How amazing is that? My assistant Nancy and I took as many pictures as possible with them because we'll probably never get the chance to do something so cool ever again.
Sequins, (faux) fur, and animals; a truly once in a lifetime experience.
