Even as a kid, you had a knack for picking up on things before anyone else. Many moons ago, on a trip to Barnes and Noble with your stressed out mom (whom was probably searching for self-help books or computer programming how-to's), a particular novel by Gregory Maguire sparked your eye. It may have been the unusual point of view that the author chose or the captivating book cover (we know, we know. "Don't judge a book by it's cover". Well, we did). While you opted out of asking your mother if you could get the paperback, there are vivid memories of another visit to B+N with your "friend", Kaela, and you leaving green with envy. Introducing the novel as a fresh perspective involving characters from the Wizard of Oz, you apparently sold Kaela enough on the book that she bought it for herself. Not you (Insert petty pre-teen anger here). How....wicked. Who would have thought that the work you soo desperately sought to read would, years later, become a broadway smash hit. It's been sixteen years since the musical's debut (here's looking at you Idina Menzel) and somehow you are only NOW buying tickets to see the show (procrastination has been a steady in your life). While you may just now be following Elphaba down the yellow brick road, you're planning on doing so in some Emerald City green.
This vibrant, emerald green short sleeve Laurence Kazar number features:
✶White, gold, red, and bright green embellished (sequins and beading) bibb along bodice front and back. Scalloped beaded trim along

In an homage to Elphie's gorgeous green hue, you don a messy, braided updo with flecks of gold hair glitter, gold chandelier earrings, and deep red lip. Matching wristlet gloves and nude pumps complete the ensemble and boom! You're defying gravity, honey. And, ain't nobody gonna bring you down. Not even Kaela. (But, like, really you guys, the book was a super hard read and we've restarted it more times than we'd like to admit).

✩Shopping is kind of like Tinder. You have to look over all of the photos, details, measurements, and terrible music tastes, before you make THE COMMITMENT. All sales are final.
✩Sequin Whore vintage items are previously worn and loved with a story to tell. The pieces are hand chosen with attention to condition, quality, hand, construction, and fit. Before the article is given a stamp of approval for saleability, it is carefully looked over for flaws and imperfections. Any inadequacies are reflected in the condition portion of the lisiting description. However, despite the best efforts and most thorough eye, it is possible that a slight blemish may have been overlooked. Refunds will only be explored if a piece has been widely misrepresented. (Whoosh, what a mouthful that was).
✩If a refund is deemed appropriate for vintage purchases, the buyer is responsible for return shipping. Returned merchandise is expected to be postmarked within 2 days of it's arrival date and in the condition it was in when sold. If additional damage has been done to the item upon return, buyer will be responsible for cost of loss in value. In such case, the buyer will be contacted before any proceedings take place. Monetary refunds may take up on 7 business days depending on bank processing.
✩Refunds will not be offered for sizing issues in vintage purchases. Sequin Whore offers garment measurements in listing descriptions and will happily work alongside you if additional information is needed. (Pinky promise, we will get through it together).
✩Color may vary with different monitor and resolution settings. For this reason, returns are not accepted for reasons to do with color.
