The other night, while aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, avoiding a significant other's minor attempts for, let's go with..."quality time" (our libido has seemingly been taken away, along with everything else in 2020, but that's a different story for a different day), we stumbled upon one those stupid inspirational quotes that some self-help fashionista type posted. Ladies (and, gentlemen), to say that we felt attacked would be a disservice. An unexpected eye-opener around midnight, that was entirely unwarranted. So rude! Sprawled out in bed, rereading the phrase over, and over, and over again., 'The fear of wasting a great outfit on an insignificant day'. Uh, let's be VERY honest, every day since the end of March has felt incredibly insignificant. An endless hamster wheel of monotony, where you're not really sure what day it is, but it doesn't really matter. Working from home lost it's novelty and convenience long ago. At this point, we're lucky if we have bathed in the past three days, let alone brush our teeth. And, let's not even talk about the thought of dressing ourselves for an adventure outside of the house. That's a feat in and of itself! Put a bra on? Are you serious? If anything, the girls are more perky now that you HAVEN'T been wearing one every day for the past six months, but we're losing sight of our revelation. ANYWAY, the thought of wasting an outfit on a day that doesn't matter struck home. Days before this realization, we were staring into our closet, thinking, "all of these clothes and nowhere to go". All of the summer dresses that never had their day in the sun, if you will. The cute romper that never made it's debut at Alicia's BBQ. Wasted. All wasted. Because, every day since March has felt unworthy of dressing up for. And, that's when our minds shifted.

Hand decorated in Hong Kong, this ornate, yet somehow understated beauty features:
✶A form fitting, ankle length, sleeveless column silhouette with a boatneck design and side leg slits
✶Lovely detailed old & silver striped floral beadwork measuring 2 1/2" and 1 1/4" wide
✶Hanging paillettes scattered throughout on the midweight cream wool
✶Intricate beaded trimming along neckline, armhole openings, and leg slit openings
✶100% Wool. Unlined. Centerback zipper with hook and eye.

While the days absolutely feel like we're living in Groundhog Day, just waiting for Bill Murray to show up, we're doing ourselves a disservice by wearing the same sweatpants that likely haven't been washed since May (that's when you still cared about staying on top of the laundry). Our car was recklessly overdue for an oil change- to the point of where we were walking the fine line of, "If I drive this today, will it catch on fire" (SPOILER ALERT: It didn't). Instead of rushing out the door with wet hair and looking a hot, hot, HOT MESS, we opted to put ourselves together and wear something fun. To make an insignificant day with a trivial task, feel WORTHY. To feel anything other than what the past six months have brought us. We did it for ourselves. And, maybe the mechanic working on the car. Here's to all of our people out there feeling helpless, worn out, and in the funk that this sh*tstorm of a year has brought. Do yourself a kindness and find a way to make your days significant. Put the lipstick on. Wear the dress. Put on the strappy heels. You may not be going anywhere, but girl, you look (and, feel) fine as hell.

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).
