In the '90s, as a kid in elementary school, we loved going to everything "special" that took us out of our prison that we called Room 22. P.E with Mr. Torrence and Mr. Martens, a cartoonish duo where one teacher was thin and very tall, while the other, short and plump. Art class was our favorite, obviously. Hell, even going to the library was fun! That is, until it was time for music class with Mrs. Kerrod (name change to preserve her privacy). Forty five minutes of unending dread. As my mother kindly liked to remind me from time to time, "You're a dancer, NOT a singer", which wasn't a jab as much as a spoken truth. My vocal limitations were, and still are, much to be desired. Anyway, HATED music class, but fast forward twenty six years later, and I can still remember every lyric for our Earth Day assembly. What a foreign concept now, right? Taking all grades out of the classroom to celebrate and talk about our planet, instead of worrying about test scores?!?!?! The audacity. To remind students of the '1-2-3, Save A Tree' motto at the paper towel dispenser. Or, to reinforce the idea of conserving energy by turning off the lights when leaving a room. What happened to all of those relatively simple reminders that we grew up with and why aren't kids taught that anymore? Getting sidetracked.... Earth Day assembly. For the second graders, we performed a melody of hits including 'Step Lightly'. As an impressionable, young babe that cared (still cares) for Mother Earth, it truly spelled everything out for me. 'Step lightly on the face of the Earth/ No one cares if your footprints show your worth/ Step lightly/ Step lightly, oh/ Step lightly on the Earth/ Step lightly so that others can follow you'. I mean, why didn't someone win a Grammy for this carbon footprint awareness smash hit?
Every time something dreadful happens to our environment, I cringe until my internal second grade self grabs me by the hand and starts singing the song (singing internally, obviously, because...yikes. No one wants to hear that). It's both helpful and sad, all in the same breath. The entire West Coast is in flames right now and here in St. Louis, in the Midwest, our skies are filled with haze from the wildfires a thousand miles away. For me, it's ominous and terrifying, only leading one to wonder how much worse it is for our friends in the Golden State. My little eight year old self is screaming, "Global warming is real", then starts crying because that's who she is.

✩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).
