This Week In eBay Obsessions: Sequins


I don't know any girl who didn't swoon at least a little bit at the site of YSL's sequin pieces for fall. Granted, the drama factor was high, but one look at those shimmering high-waisted black trousers made me absolutely certain I couldn't possibly face fall without a little sparkle in the mix. I scored my own totally perfect vintage black sequin jacket on eBay for about $50, but a little tank or sequin purse could do the trick, too. Here are a few other finds to satisfy a new sequin fix--sans the tack factor.
