All that Glitters is not Gold.

We've been noticing sequin maxi skirts popping up all over the place and we're here to say that they are nothing but a tease.  At first we answered the siren call of this Anthro sequin skirt.  Our eyes were glazed over by glitter and we thought here is our chance to be real life princesses!  Into the dressing room we danced and...womp, womp, womp.  While the dress looks glam on a hanger, on the body it hugs the hips tightly and fans out at the bottom, making the wearer look a bit too much like a remix of The Little Mermaid.  But it's not just the fit.  The all over glitter made us feel like we were trying just a little too hard.  While some glitter is good, too much glitter is Glinda-the-Good-Witch.  If you must have a sequin skirt in your closet we suggest mini versus maxi in order to tone down the style, like the skirt below from Jcrew Factory.
