Look for Less: Miss Me Sequined Hoodie


I go back and forth with these sequined hoodies—seems like they're everywhere these days—but with the holidays coming up, I'm beginning to think they're a great way to dress up without all the fuss. And since we found a budget-version of Miss Me's sequined hoodie, you can indulge without all the guilt. In terms of styling, you could play up the urban vibe and wear yours with kicks, or go dressier with dark jeans and heels. Luxe, laid-back and best of all, cheap! Find out where to cop yours after the jump.

You know, for all that I love Forever21's stuff, it is the most hectic store, and they don't let more than one person in at a time (my mom and I shop together a lot) and the staff are usually MAD impolite--its like they dont even care who they hire. But like I said, they are sometmes necessary for cheap goods.

I bought a sequined cardigan at Old Navy today...the most sequins I will do lol

Oh, and if you wouldn't mind, if you could maybe take a look at my blog and comment some? :-)

Oh Sarah, I had a terrible time at F21 a few months ago! I wrote to the company and told them all about it. I finally got a response and apparently the entire staff was going to get retrained! The last time I went to the same store, I had a fine time!

Yeah, I've been back and forth on these hoodies too... I still haven't made up my mind but at that price...

I own a black sequin zip up, and I think its a great way to make a casual yet fun holiday statement! Especially perfect with some cute heels and skinny jeans for just a touch of holiday pizzazz without looking like a christmas tree!

I just got the miss me hoodie for 34.99 at Century 21 in NYC. The 4E21 version looks very cheap and lacks the delicate look of the miss me hoodie the miss me hoodie is comprised of intricate tiny sequin through out and more sequins densely packed at the cuff, waist, and surrounding zipper. The forever 21 version has fleece cuff huge tacky sequin and looks cheap. Its okay to shop cheap but this looks it. Im a fan of forever 21 and have several of there nicer looks. As far as staff goes you get what you pay for. If you want your butt kissed and be offered champagne shop at marc jacobs on mercer st in NYC. These people make 12 cents an hour and are mostly students so lets get over ourselves
