Operation Sequin Pants: The Eagle Has Landed

In the process of undergoing Operation Sequin Pants a couple of things have come to light:  a. I am not particularly risky in the clothing department (read: fears the thunder thigh effect) and b. one can never have too many lunges and/or squats per 24 hour timespan.  It's been a few weeks since the pants were secured, but yesterday was the first time they actually saw the great outdoors.  Conclusion:  you have to have nuts to be traipsing around in these things in the daylight hours.  They are ideal for the New Year's Eve or Holiday party circuit, but I'm contemplating how to meander around for the next few weeks in a more casual ensemble.  Perhaps the ballet flat, simple white t//blouse + blazer effect will bring it home...once the ten inches of rain stop falling.  Until then, examine the evidence.  Warning:  sparkly pants apparently bring out the inner crazy bird.
~J.Crew-Sweater, Siwy-Sequin Pants, Forever21:Booties~
I'm sure the neighbor was wondering WTH was going on. Niiiice.
Picked up this sweater on the fly at J.Crew just days before locating the pants.  
It sold out moments later, but I saw a few strays in my local store this weekend in case
you're on the hunt and/or feeling chagrin over lack of online availability.
~Bracelets: mix of Madewell, J.Crew, Vanessa Mooney, AE and random hairband.~

*I'll add outtake pics to the facebook page later today (now done)...prepare to pee your pants laughing.
ps-next up:  Operation Trim the Tree.  Here's hoping the lights are on prior to NYE.

Please have 5 more outfit posts featuring the sequin pants. ASAP. Just went to look at the outtake photos - I think a couple of them definitely belonged in the post!

And I want that J Crew sweater. Might as well go on a hunt for it since Christmas presents are never going to arrive.

You're so nice! I had 5, thought it might be overkill, took 2 out, added a bunch to the facebook page and downed another glass of Moet. The lights are STILL not completely on the tree. *glug*

Miss Caitlin S. said...

you could NOT have done this look any better. I LOOOOVVVEEEEEEEEE it. The pants and the toned-down sweater with it are seriously perfect. Well done Carrie... well, well done. Hats off to you.

PS only wake up with makeup on when I don't wash my face the night before, it was showered off very soon after.

Awesome lady + killer pants + amazing sweater= perfect combination!

That's quite the pose there!! I think someone was feeling feisty in their new pants.

Okay, if you have the cajones to actually buy sequin pants, you have the cajones to rock them and you do it so lovely. I love the whole shebang!! Those boots are hot too!!

Rissy said...

I LOVE THEM! and I think with a white button down and blazer they will totally be acceptable day time pants!

Courtney Erin said...

I love them!!!! LOVE. Seriously, I cannot stress this enough. The same goes for the top. I think the ballet flats are a great idea for dressing them down as well - but also just wear those sparkly babies with pride. You've got sequin pants Lady, you wear them however the hell you want!

They fit you perfectly! Wow! This makes me want to bite the bullet and try some on. Very inspiring (in that odd, sequined way.)
Anyway, you are gorgeous and I adore that first photo. Hahahaha! Your neighbors must love you!

Those pants are The Bomb! You look great in them Carrie! Now I want a pair!

Grace - Stripes and Sequins said...

OMG. I love you, and I love this outfit!! It's perfect!

Amber said...

those pants are wicked cool. I think a white tee and blazer could make those pants more appropriate for daytime wear, for sure.

la petite coquine said...

Oh shit-look at you, hottie! This is sequin up the ying yang and I effing love it. Like I love the holiday outtakes-genius.

Claire Kiefer said...

I loooooove the pants. They're incredible and look super hot on you. You're silly to fear thunder thighs, you skinny minnie. You look great!

Kai.Mercado. said...

You are seriously amazing. I don't think I could ever wear these! And I think you are right...i think an oversized white tshirt, blazer, and flats would look TO DIE FOR!

Alexa said...

MUST have sequin pants. LOVE.

Kavery said...

You are rocking this in a fierce and fab way Carrie. I can manage one sequinned item at a time or the 'looks' become too much to handle! LOL!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

the sequin pant has landed and it is HOT SAUCE!! Damn girl...I knew you would style these pants to perfection! And those legs of yours look amazing...who needs to workout when your legs look like that?! LOVE it!

P.S. Mom's was on top of the Whiskey! Hilar.

Faith said...

seriously, those pants are pure perfection! actually i think you rocking them are pure perfection!

you are stunning!

styles of a pharmatrician said...

haha I know exactly what you're talking about when you say "thunder thigh effect"! I can't wear alot of shorts and pants because my thighs.. sadly just don't look good in them. But you are rockin' those sequin pants!

-Tricia

Tracy D said...

Um I'm going to need that first shot in a poster version please. Geez I heart you Carrie...

Lori said...

I just knew you would rock those pants!! Now for the tree ~ get on that would ya! xo

LyddieGal said...

Ohhh I love that you decided to throw caution to the wind and pile on the sequins. I can see why that sweater sold out so quickly, it's almost as awesome as the pants, and your hard work paid off, your legs look amazing.

Chic on the Cheap
