Choicer Than The Mermaid Tavern

My family really isn't one for fancy dinners--some of our favorite meals in Hawaii come from food trucks or L&L drive in...but I wanted an excuse to wear my sequin dress so I insisted on a nice meal out. It's sort of my dream dress; the ombré sequins remind me of mermaids (which is always a good association).

Topshop sequin dress

I've been looking for a nice sequined dress and the skirt on yours is absolutely fantastic. I rarely see such nice shapes on shifts adorn with sequins, so that's a true stand out you have there. Dream dress indeed ;).

Oh my god, what a beautiful ombre effect--I'm not usually a big fan, but those colors + the sequins really DO remind one of a mermaid. You look stunning! And red hair does suit mermaids, you know ;3

Lauren Sherritt said...

I want want want this dress! It's exactly mermaid like, isn't it!

I agree with everyone else, I think (apart from the stunning colours) it's the cut that makes this one special. It's incredibly elegant, while the flashy sequins add that extra notch of fun!
