When it comes to birthdays, I tend to keep things pretty quiet and low-key — SIKE! I'm a Leo, which means when it comes to birthdays, I love two things: lots of attention and sequins.
To the latter, I happened to luck upon the most perfect sequin miniskirt from Alice + Olivia while perusing The RealReal just weeks before my actual birthday — which is, in fact, today! It's covered, à la the scales of a mermaid's tail, in rainbow-hued sequins that make a satisfyingly loud sound when I move (I told you I like attention). I'm not exaggerating when I tell you I'm going to wear it with literally everything, from my Harry Styles t-shirt to turtlenecks and tights come cooler weather.
I love it so much, in fact, that I'm now trying to get my hands on as many sequined skirts, dresses and tops as possible — and wouldn't you know it, Alice + Olivia has a brand-new take on the look right now. I can't wait to make my birthday-ready look happen all year long. Like I said, I'm a Leo.
Alice + Olivia Tianna high-waisted skirt, $695, available here.
