An open letter to sequins

Dear sequins,

You’re so pretty and shiny! I want to wear you on everything.

But damn, you itch.

You itch through a layer of jersey. You itch when you’re on the front of my shirt and you rub against my arm.

It’s really hard to find pieces featuring you that don’t itch, which is why I only have one: a beloved, ratty, missing-half-its-sequins jacket. (Yes, I’ve been known to leave a trail of black sequins wherever I go when I wear it….sometimes people find them weeks after I’ve visited.)

If you can somehow reinvent yourself in a non-itchy way, I’d love to wear you! I swear.

Sparkly love,
