Anyone who knows me well knows I have to have some bedazzle and bling in my life. But at $398, this crewneck dark sequin popover sweater with elbow sleeves by J. Crew was not going to end up in my closet anytime soon. So what’s a fashionable (and sensible) girl to do? Look elsewhere, of course. And since I love vintage clothing (because of its one of a kind, superb detail), I hunted until I found this beautiful Cyn Les sequined sweater which zips up the back. I actually love this sweater more than the J. Crew version, because the sequins are jet black and I think the zipper keeps it from being too sweet. And the grand total was less than $15 (yes, go ahead and hate me). For a fun night out, I’ll style my version similarly, with tight rolled dark denim to tone the sequins down, and my fuchsia stilettos for a pop of color. Fab and budget-friendly!
