OOTN: Gold Sequins & Faux Leather! 9/21/12

Tonight's outfit is one I wore to the opening night of my best friend's art gallery. I wanted to wear something edgy, but still chic, so I chose to pair this feminine, gold sequin blouse with black, faux leather leggings and a black and white statement necklace!
I've been seeing faux leather everywhere this Fall and thought this was a nice way to incorporate it in an outfit. It's a little ironic because when I first saw faux leather leggings and pants last Fall/Winter season, I absolutely hated them. It took about six months for them to grow on me and before I knew it, I was searching for my own pair mid-summer. I had a hard time finding these leggings in the summer, but managed to snag a pair from Love Culture that I really enjoy. They are light weight, stretchy, and comfortable. Best of all, they have a slight sheen to them that isn't too plastic-looking, which I enjoy. I've seen these everywhere lately, so you shouldn't have as difficult a time tracking them down as I did in the summer if you're interested in rocking this trend.
To keep the outfit a little feminine and add depth, I paired the leggings with this gold sequin blouse with chiffon long sleeves. I love how the neutral sparkle of the blouse makes it more wearable and less flashy while still making a statement. I like mixing textures and thought the chiffon, sequins, and faux leather really worked well together.
I don't like wearing leggings as pants, so I layered a long black cami under the chiffon blouse to cover my behind!
For shoes, you could wear any black flats, boots, or heels with this outfit, but I opted for these gold, glitter flats to add even more sparkle. I've worn these flats to death, which is funny because I was originally on the fence about getting them because I thought I wouldn't be able to pair them with many outfits. How wrong I was!
For jewelry, I love how this black and white statement necklace ties the whole outfit together. The angular shape of the necklace compliments the edgy faux leather perfectly. I also wore this set of triangular silver, gold, and black metal rings and my rose gold Michael Kors watch.
I actually wore this outfit on two different occasions with two different pairs of earrings. The first time, I chose these tear-drop shaped vintage earrings with a black gem, which gave off more of a punk vibe. The second time I wore this outfit, I wore black crystal drop earrings to make it a little more dressy (as can be seen two photos below.)
