PFC #8: Spinning The Favorite

The Challenge: "Many times we settle with a style and rarely venture out to explore new ways to piece clothes and style outfits in new and different ways. With this month, I’m hoping for all of us to venture out of our comfort zones to expand our styling skills. Thus, the challenge will be to take a “go-to” outfit, put a spin on it by styling it in a different way but still keeping a couple of essential components."

I thought about not participating in this month's challenge, but changed my mind. So first off, I cheated -- don't hate me, I didn't wanna be left out! Rather than putting together a new look, I did a recap of how I styled my Gryphon NY sequin shorts. (Other than this last min. cheat-cheat, I got nothing, NADA. (Maybe I'm over thinking it....))
Sequins are one of this season's hottest trends and every girl should have at least one item that sparkles. A misconception about sequin garments is the whole daytime/nighttime thing. Most would say it's for the night, but I would have to disagree. It's for whenever YOU feel appropriate. With a little styling and a lot of attitude, you can wear it whenever you want. This little sparkly piece has been worn many different ways and for many different occasions, both day and night!

  2. Love these shorts... oh my. I agree with you about sequins during the night. Total misconception that they aren't cool for daytime. I'm so glad that they're finally becoming more acceptable ALL times of day!!

  5. Yay I'm glad you changed your mind, Khatu. I'm a fan of sequins and sparkles, but only in moderation, and preferably in white, so it blends into the background, lol. That kind of defeats its purpose but I need baby steps :) More posts like this please?

  6. your outfits are always so inspiring--past or present.

    this isn't cheating at all. you spin this pair of shorts continually, so in essence, you challenge yourself all the time. kudos!

  8. I totally agree that sequins shouldn't be relegated to strictly "night" looks! Your look re-caps clearly illustrate that :)

  13. Khatu, I love your sequin shorts and you got me HOOKED on Gryphon! I think you did great even though it's not a new outfit...there are no "rules" that say you can't feature an outfit that's been on your blog before.

    Each look with those shorts is so unique and so chic. You are awesome. =)
