Thrift + Style: Vintage Sequin Top

First time wearing the vintage sequin top from my estate sale haul. It was perfect for a girl's night out with Girl Get A Life.  We celebrated her birthday with tapas, cocktails, and reggae. Sequins were very necessary.

The little black shorts took it next level. These shorts are shorter than my white shorts. I usually wear them in the colder months with tights. Surprisingly, I didn't feel naked wearing them with so much bare leg showing. The oversized volume of the sequin top helps balance things out.

I rounded out the look with a great pair of snakeskin print sandals from*. There was a free pair code in my Lipstick and High Heels goodie bag. I've never hit the final sale button on any of the shoe club programs. I was concerned about the quality. Cheap heels on poor little baby toe, I cannot do. No ma'am. 

I was completely wrong though. These shoes really are Just Fab! The quality is pretty good. They're not hard and uncomfortable either. I didn't start to feel the pain until after I finished my two step at 2a. Even then, it wasn't and all out tears of pain baby toe killing experience. I will definitely check them out again!

Thrift Tips

ideas for wearing a vintage sequin blouse

Sequins are delicate and can unravel easily. Examine thoroughly if purchasing in a thrift store where there's possibility of damage from all of the man handling.

Sequins can be a little more costly in thrift and vintage stores. If you like it, it's usually worth the cost.

Visit those estates sales! The condition is likely better having been in someone's closet.

Ignore size labels and try on. The sequin top I'm wearing is size XL.

Style Tips

comfortable and well made just fab shoes

Sequins can stand on their own and don't need a lot of accessories.

Wear sequins with a sweater or blazer for a daytime look.

Pair a sequin top with jeans or shorts for a casual yet fabulous evening look.

Dare to wear sequins with teeny tiny shorts? Expect attention.
