Holiday Ready With Elaine Turner

One of my favorite accessory stores is Elaine Turner; not only because the brand is filled with gorgeous shoes, bags, jewelry, and accessories, but because Elaine uses her business to spread awareness and raise funds for many different charities. In one of the Elaine Turner YouTube videos, Elaine discusses that the inspiration behind lining her handbags in a hot pink color is in honor of her mother’s battle with breast cancer. She opens her boutiques for weekly charity events focused around women and children and it’s examples like these that make the Elaine Turner brand even more special to me. Today, I’m featuring the beautiful Angelina Snake Noir Clutch and I love the embossed black leather mixed with the light gold bamboo clasp. It exudes luxury and makes for the perfect holiday party clutch!

If you want a glimpse into the Elaine Turner brand, you must check out her fun YouTube series. Just watching Elaine makes me laugh and want to hang out with her but I also feel so inspired watching her turn her business into an incredible platform to just GIVE back. Check out the trailer and let me know if you spot me in the latest episode here (hint: I’m wearing a bright coral dress at around 2:45 🙂 )! I also loved watching this episode where Elaine talks about her inspiration behind the brand.

I’m super excited to share an exclusive promo code for you guys to use just this week on your purchase from Elaine Turner! Just use the code ASEQUINLOVEAFFAIR20 for 20% off your purchase.

Sequin Skirt

Someone recently told me that for a blog name like “A Sequin Love Affair,” I don’t wear enough sequins. So I’m trying to rectify that and it’s pretty easy to do during holiday season! More recently I’ve worn emerald green sequins and a sequin bomber with some of my favorite sequin looks in the past being this sequin embellished top, sequin cardigan, sequin skirt, and sequin stripes. And those are just a few of the many I’ve found so I feel better now that I went through my archives. 🙂

What do you find yourself wearing on repeat?

Bow Sweater and Metallic Maxi

It’s not easy finding clothing boutiques in Brooklyn that aren’t overpriced but Jupe NYC consistently has beautiful, trendy and unique pieces while still being really affordable (I’m wearing Jupe in the sequin bomber, jeweled midi skirt, and chevron blouse). I’m wearing two more pieces from the boutique and the back bow detailing on this shimmery burgundy sweater completely won me over.  I’m loving this outfit for a modest holiday look!

The wind (and cold) really got in the way of our shoot, but Brittanny still managed to capture some great shots of this amazing sequin dress! I got it last year in a Bloomingdales outlet in Florida for like 70% off and saved it for now. It’s currently available in gold (here) and such a great holiday party dress!
