Inspired by the Golden Globes!

It’s awards season!! Of course, I love seeing what everyone wears on the red carpet, but let’s be honest…when is the next time I’m gonna find myself on a red carpet wearing a formal gown? Unfortunately, no time soon. Lol!  So, when it comes to red carpet inspiration, it’s all about taking your favorite red carpet trends and giving them an every day make-under.  So, when GLAM and Discover Card asked me to create my own street style look inspired by the Golden Globe Awards for under $150, I was up for the challenge.


One of my favorite red carpet trends is the mermaid silhouette gown…it’s just so sexy and feminine.  There were three looks that really inspired my street style look, all of which have one thing in common…SEQUINS!!

I found this super cute Calvin Klein sequin maxi skirt at for only $50!  I paired it with a striped tee and shoes I already owned, and spent another $60 on affordable accessories from Charming Charlie — a cute crossbody evening bag for $25, and two sets of stackable rhinestone rings for $13 each.  My entire look rang in at only $110.  Not bad, right?

    Lovely outfit the skirt is everything!!!

  14. My favorite dress was Cate Blanchett's. I love your look. Sequin garments can easily go daytime. I love incorporating them into office attire outfits. All I need to feel great is a sequin top, an on-trend blazer, trousers or a skirt. Styling your skirt with a striped top is such a fresh spin.
