All that glitters and Adrian

Hello lovelies, 
Sequins have a way of captivating you, they glitter and dance in the light "in sudden and unexpected flashes that shimmer brilliantly before the eyes". The word sequin is french for the italian word zecchino, meaning gold coin.
The amazing costume designer Gilbert Adrian, known simply as Adrian, defined glamour in the mid-twentieth-century, making dresses covered with sequins for actresses such as Marlene Dietrich and Joan Crawford. Adrian was also the mastermind behind the forever famed "ruby slippers" worn by Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz. Sequins will forever be glamourous and fun~

Here is a little sparkle for your day, enjoy~
