Gyms, closed. Hot yoga studios, shut down. Finding home fitness equipment, like dumbbells (or, any other kind of weights really), was comparable to that of the Toilet Paper Crisis of 2020. For Dion, working out and getting her sweat on had always been her means of self-care. Easing her mind, lowering her blood pressure, ya know, making her not want to kill someone. When quarantine hit, though, and, the world essentially shut down, our girl found herself curled up on the couch in a blanket burrito, unable to function or move. That is, unless it was to visit, or revisit, the pantry. Cheetos are a dangerous drug, you guys. A party size bag of the orange puff sticks were consistently her comfort food of choice. Snacking away on them while binge watching Tiger King (let's discuss ALL of that, in depth, at a later date) or alongside her during her daily baths. Quite a brilliant move on Di's part, actually, completely eliminating the whole powdery finger situation..........That may have been her low point. After a month or so, the lonely mess became fearful of the Quarantine Fifteen, finding it increasingly difficult to function as a person. Dion realized that she needed to get her blood flowing, somehow, or, she was going to end up committed. So, she started running. Every day. To get outside. For fresh air. To clear her frantic mind. On occasion, the motivated runner completed two-a-days when one run simply didn't do the job. Endurance built. Mileage increased. Somewhere in the confines of quarantine, Dion found herself down thirty pounds and a whole lot more calm, until it was announced that Halloween was, basically, cancelled. I mean, as if 2020 hasn't taken enough......

Unwilling to allow the year to take anything more from her, Dion proposed a small, chill gathering at her place on All Hallow's Eve amongst a few of her closest friends. She hadn't seen them for MONTHS and wasn't going to let another holiday pass by without some form of a celebration. Plus, she secretly wanted to show off her new bod. Who could blame her? Considering alcohol is the only thing that this dumpster fire of 2020 hasn't taken away, Dion opts for a '20s art deco vibe. Can you imagine going through the Spanish Flu with Prohibition going on? Those people were saints.

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).
