Growing up in Nashville, Nadia's been around the block a time or two when it comes to seeing live music. Without being braggy, she's quite literally seen it all- unknown artists spilling their souls on stage night after night in hopes of being discovered. It can be a thankless gig, but there's something special about watching a starving musician rise to success. In the early aughts, Nadia was working behind the bar at a well known Nashvegas establishment when a young, incredibly talented songstress plopped down in front of the bartender after her set, looking rather disappointed. Genuinely concerned for the woman, Nadia asked why she looked soo blue after such a great performance. "I feel like it could have been better", the artist expressed, staring blankly at the counter. Without missing a beat, Nadia exclaimed, "Honey. Dolly Parton had her off nights, too", setting a glass of water down in front of the young woman. A smile quickly whipped across the singer's face as she looked up to meet Nadia. "You must know the way to my heart. Dolly's my idol. She is the BIGGEST influence in my music. What'd you say your name was again? I'm Kasey. Kasey Musgraves". The pair continued to talk for hours about life, music, men, and the eccentric pink ensemble that the songstress was sporting. Nadia never would have thought on that evening so many years ago, that she was befriending one of country music's shining stars, who, down the road, would invite Nadia to be her plus one at the ACM Awards. Life is strange, sometimes, but you've always gotta follow your arrow. Wanting to compliment her longtime friend on the red carpet in a subtle way, Nadia opts for something colorful with a lil' shine.

This vibrant Carmen Marc Valvo ruffled gown features:
✶Twisted halter neckline with draped bodice and cascading center front ruffle
✶Metallic silver beveled bead collar
✶A-line silhouette slim through the thigh, flaring at the knee with a sweeping hemline
✶Fully lined with center back zipper topped off with a hook and eye closure
✶Shell: 100% Polyester. Lining: 100% Acetate

While Kasey looks stunning in a head to toe tie dye suit, Nadia opts for a sleek, high ponytail, bright pink lip, and heavily inspired 'sixties eye makeup. Silver, metallic, strappy heels complete the red carpet look, serving a Grecian goddess vibe. While Nadia can't believe she is about to be in the same room as some of her favorite musicians, she can't help but feel a little proud of how far that young woman she met at the bar has come.

Returns and exchange details

✩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).
