Thinking Outside The Shiny Box



As a child, I had some dresses I treasured and they all had one thing in common, sequins. The sequins on my dresses made me sparkle and I really loved it. If I was a teenager in the 80s, I'm sure all my outfits would have had sequins. Heck, I really liked Micheal Jackson's sequined glove. Anyway, sequins are popular for putting the shine in an outfit. What are sequins exactly? Here is what I found. Sequins are bead-like discs that glitter with the touch of light. Sequins can be made with plastic and even comes in different shapes and colors. Coins have been said to be used as sequins. Sequins are also coated with gold and silver. I have some friends who are happy to leave the sequined look in the 80s, but I'm thankful for the person who thought about beautifying outfits with sequins because the person added some fun to my childhood fashion life!
