DIY sequin top-Yay or Nay?

Whilst walking to work today, in my local charity shop there was a gold sequin boob tube for about £3. I did like it, but wasn't sure how I would wear it, as I don't go out socially very much (how sad, haha!!)
Anyhow, whilst surfing the 'net, I saw this lovely dress from Antik Batik for £369 and it got me to thinking whether I could wear the boob tube over a t-shirt like the look of this dress?

What do you think-a yay or nay? I suppose it would be a glammy top for Christmas day, but I want some opinions first!!

100% YAY! so festive and pretty...this really is the only time of the year you can get away with so many sequins.

budget chic said...

I love the look Sharon, with the right shoes (mega stilettos on that one) I say Yay!

Fabulously Broke said...

I too say Yay. As long as everything else is kept muted and simple :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi saray-thanks for the first yay my dear!!

Hi emily-yes, too true, it can be the 'Christmas' top, haha!

Hi budget chic-thanks so much for the thumbs up!

Definately yay! Love the idea of dressing down dresses with a tshirt

Sal said...

Go for it, lady. If anyone can pull it off, it's you!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fabulously broke-thanks-I do agree with what you said too.

How long is the boob tube? If it's just a strap across the chest I wouldn't do it. But if it's longer, like in the photo, I would. Only difficult thing is which colour t-shirt to combine with GOLD.
I have a sequinned jacket too, and I never know how to wear it because I don't go out very much either ^^ But Christmas day is a wonderful occasion!

Skye said...

Give it a go - the top of the boob tube might kind of squish into the t-shirt in an unflattering way though, and the t-shirt might lump up under the boob tube too. Definitely worth a try though!

Jules said...

I love the look - a definate yay

Fashion_Loving_Stylist said...

Of course Yay! You can pull off anything.

WendyB said...

Sounds worth a try to me.

Fashion_Girl22 said...

I say YAY!
DIY sequins sound pretty risky, though. Hopefully they don't fall off. <3

Sharon Rose said...

Hi cate-its boob to waist length I think. Maybe I'll give it a go!

Hi Skye-yes, I was thinking the same about the top underneath, not sure what to do now!

Hi Jules-thanks so much for stopping by!!

Hi lenya-so lovely of you, thanks!!

Hi wendy-thanks a lot my dear!

Hi fashion girl22-thanks for your comment my dear!

Cal said...

i vote yes! you can always pair it down even further by throwing a cardi over the top (kind of like Sal did recently in a post about her new sequined top) or by adding a big thick scarf. fun fun!
