little clubbing dress is sequined
Since Sequined dresses are and were one of the major trends, they are available for small amounts in cheap retailer stores or on the high street in high prices
The story was great; yes they offered us lots of heavy sequins, sleeveless A cuts, even short sleeves. And then God send us Decarnin and Balmain. And we saw at Balmain that they were fooling us. The sequin dress doesn’t have to be heavy, and its purpose is not to be the public mirror.

Purpose is more to be sexy and to look bit wet. And certainly not spreading the street-light effect. Believe me, I tried a lot of sequin dresses out there and I realized the cut has to be perfect. Mini dresses with long sleeves and light sequins are favorable. Heavy sequins on sleeveless dresses hardly look good even on 0 size girls but if choosing heavy one rather go for bodycon. Remember that Kate Moss dress for top shop? Concept of dress was adorable but who was suppose to wear it? Dress weights more than regular girl.
Since our designers realized that on beginning of the year you will need to wait for fall expansion of mini sequin dresses in the stores. Jen Kao, Stella McCartney, Gucci, Alexander Wang, Gucci, Macqua, Twenty8Twelve; all presenting us douce small sequin dresses with perfect cut.
Great alternative for sparkly, glossy look are dresses made of metallic, polyester or lamé. Good choice for non sequin type of girls that want to be sparkly and glossy sometimes, can be simple white T tank dress with heavier scarf made of lamé or sequins. Also wearable daily on white tee. And tell me what is better than to own soft sequined jacket and wear it on white tee, jeans and ponytail
Please don’t let them fool you with heavy sequins; and don’t fall for the sales.
I managed to find this Vicky Martin dress that looks soft, in two colors through stylefinder

Suede booties, particulary wedges and nude legs match perfectly with small sequin dress. I am sure Daria Werbovy knew that when she wore them at Met with Balmain dress
I am head over heels for Prada Wedge suede boots, Bergdorf, though I wouldn't mind to have Alaia's wedges from Matches
