I am so excited that it is finally September! It is my favorite month and not only because it includes my birthday, though I do always say that football and cold weather is what the universe gives me as a birthday gift every year. More than that it is the start of what I think of as sequin season, those lovely fall and winter months when one can truly dress up with wild abandon when the occasion strikes. In college I had the most fantastic sequin skirt and each time I wore it I felt beautiful and very rock n’ roll, neither of which happens on a daily basis. That skirt was pure silver shiny magic. So this fall I’m taking sequin season quite literally and looking for a suitable replacement (though I can’t remember, or imagine, why in the world I ever got rid of that skirt) and I may even incorporate shiny bits into my daily attire, you simply cannot be in a bad mood when you sparkle, am I right?
