Shelly sequins dress is a solid investment piece
What: Shelly sequins dress in pink, black, and silver
Where: French Connection (1150 Robson Street)
Price Tag: $398
Why: I’m a big fan of investing in clothing that is simultaneously classic and trendy because you can make use of it season after season—and this dress is a keeper. The straight shape and black side panels flatter while the short length allows you to show some leg. I love the hip colour and texture combination of muted pink sequins, brushed silver sequins, and black beading. Get girly and wear it with classic ballet flats, a velvet pouch, and pretty pearls for an afternoon tea party, or go glam and pair it with black patent kitten heels, a satin clutch, and blinged-out bangles for a dressy soirée. A baby pink pout, cat’s-eye liner, and a messy French twist will complete the look.
