Ready, Set...

Top? Thrifted Jeans? h&m, thrifted and bleached Belt? Off another dress Boots? Ash, Winners (similar here or without studs here)

This top I thrifted was actually part of a set with this skirt. Indeed someone in the past, who was infinitely cooler than I, wore both of those sequin pieces at the same time. I bought the outfit because I wanted the skirt and I thought I would just donate or sell the top.

If it feels wrong to you that I would get rid of a sequin item, don't worry, it felt wrong to me too... I'm glad I never got rid of it because though the shirt might be a little oversized but there is not much a belt can't fix. Besides I'm a big fan of oversized shirts and my favourite denim shirt needs a break occasionally.

We can all agree denim is a wardrobe staple. I'm at the point now where sequins are too.

Everywhere I go, all I see is sequin. It's not becuase sequin is everywhere, it's because I have selective sight. Sequin is all I want to see right now.

ps. I love that you thrift. I'm such a thrifter too, and when I see you wear some of those items I usually have to dig through my drawers and pull out the item similar to the one you have on... Just because it's vintage doesn't mean they didn't have a "style" ;)

I love sequins so much - seriously it is a problem; my cousin calls me 'magpie' and I'll see something shiny when we are thrifting and that is what I will head to first.

I'm so glad that you didn't get rid of that top! So good.

xoxo,

SHINYYYYYYYY!!!!!! << that's actually the exact same reaction I have to sequins in real life, it's less awkward online. Though only just. Probably because of the lack of petting a random person's clothes.

Sequins are absolutely a wardrobe staple. Unless you're a guy? Even then, more power to you I guess.

I rarely drop responses, but i did some searching and wound
up here "Ready, Set...". And I actually do
have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses look like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Could you list of every one of all your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
