Step aside, Rob Pattinson! Move back, Stephen Moyer! There is a new Vampy Vixen in town and she goes by the name of Sequins! Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Where exactly is Miss Mimi_Style going with this?” But just let me introduce a little evidence.

1. Like the uber-undead, sequins appeal to the bold and daring. Sookie Stackhouse? Bella Swan? All shrinking violets should stick with the lowly mortals.

2. Sequins and vamps alike show sartorial sophistication in the inkiest of black. Talk about a fashion-forward fanger.

3. Most importantly, society has designated both the glitzy fabric and the aforementioned blood-suckers as creatures of the night.

Numbers 1 and 2, I can live with.

But numero tres? Beyond out-dated. Why must we continue to sequester our sequins during daylight hours? Like “True Blood’s” Bill Compton, sequins long for the warmth of human companionship.

That glittery tank that only gets seen “In Da Club” is begging to slip under a blazer and hit up the office. Tame down a sequined skirt with a classic cardi. I L-O-V-E J.Crew’s wide variety of oversized boyfriend styles. And those shine-sexy short-shorts I mentioned in “Get Shorty” just need a basic tee to take them from naughty nighttime to daring for day.

So Tartelettes, take a chance and break out those sequins before dusk.

XO,
Amelia
