Window shopping: sequins

If you walk all the way through Chinatown on Grant Avenue (as you know we did because of this and this), you’ll pass through the Dragon Gate*, and then skirt the edges of the fanciness that is the retail environment of Union Square.

And good news for fans of dresses that are generously sequined – they appear to be in fashion at this time.**

*You may be wondering what the very first business is that you’ll spot when you leave Chinatown. And it won’t be a surprise when I tell you that it’s Starbucks. Because of course it is.
**How long does “at this time” last in the fashion world? I’m asking for a friend, although I am the current owner of a pair of fabulous Doc Marten boots that are covered in black sequins and you can bet your ass that I’ll be wearing them until the last few sequins fall right off, no matter what fashion says. (True fact: I am wearing them RIGHT NOW as I write the post.)
