During the thick of Quarantine 2020, we thought it best to use our skillset and natural sewing talents to help aid hospitals, first responders, and essential workers, with masks (Like, NBD, we simply wanted to be good humans and be of service). At one point in time, we definitely lost track of the total count, but we do know that it was a rather large number. Anyway, totally beside the point and not the main part of the story. Not even close. While in the one woman show of production that was our life for a few months, anyone who sews (Or, crafts. Or, does anything really), knows that you need background noise, whether it's true crime podcasts, sad bastard music, or flipping on Netflix. Over here at Sequin Whore, going back to a show that impacted us during formidable high school (and, college years) that could be watched a thousand times over and then some, well, comfort was found in throwing it back to Darren Star's HBO phenom that was/ is, Sex & The City. While SATC may not stand the test of time (much to our chagrin, we found ourselves agreeing a lot with Miranda and thinking that Carrie is actually, kind of a narcissist. I know, I know. Don't hate us), there's a nostalgia about cosmos, Sarah Jessica Parker wandering the streets, looking fabulous, mind you, and the New York backdrop that felt like much needed therapy. Blasting through the series, we opted to dive a little bit further into the movies to get our fill. The second film, to be exact. It was there, that we were pleasantly surprised to have found some commonalities with Bradshaw in this disaster we call, "2020". In the follow up flick, Carrie and Big are combating the lulls of marriage as our girl finds herself feeling stuck at home all of the time and eating the same takeout over, and, over, and over again (Uh, hi. Relatable). It's not until the end scene that Carrie realizes that you have to decorate life in your own way, as she wanders around her posh apartment in an emerald floor-length gown, only to lay on the couch with Big. Folks, let's just say that that hit us hard. Real hard.

Channeling Carrie Bradshaw at the end of the monstrosity that was SATC 2, this infatuating emerald green Cache dress showcases:
✶A form fitting, floor length, sleeveless sheath silhouette with intricate sheer mesh beaded cutouts, stunning drape, and princess seaming
✶Encrusted with delicate striped emerald trimming along neckline and straps
✶Breathtaking criss-cross open back design with centerback zipper with hook and eye closure
✶Shell: 75% Triacetate, 25% Polyester. Lining: 100% Nylon

Taking a page from our favorite New York gal, somewhere in the haze of quarantine, we, too decided that sweatpants were no longer a way to live our lives. That, in order to maintain any kind of mental stability, forcing ourselves to dress up, even if only around the house, was a way to make the most of this truly difficult time, bearable. To decorate the damn quarantine in our own way.

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).
