Thrift Inspiration, doing it the Wang way!!

Sequins are so on trend for this season, evident in Alexander Wangs collection for A/W 08

I was lucky to bag this vintage sequin waistcoat/vest at the boot sale a few months back for £1!! The same lady also sold me some lovely satin skinny DKNY trousers for a £1 too! Anyway, this is my take on the Wang look-this piece is so versatile, I can wear it with a jumper dress, skinny polo neck and long length jeans, a floaty blouse.

Here are my £1.30 pair of jeans I got last month from the PDSA charity shop-I'm rocking the roll up look today!! Have a great weekend everyone and hope the sun shines for us all!!

Good look as ever - I need you to remove the leather jacket and topshop dress! I need to put out an appeal to the person who bought mine on ebay to sell it back to me! Have a great weekend too!x

Yhanks for the comment..I found a pattern for a jacket I hope I can make out of a pair of jeans. It might help if I get a sewing needle just for deninum though.

Thanks again.

Hi there ;) I love shiny things, and this vest is fabulous. I also have a sequined vest, but never thought to just throw it on over jeans and a tee. I am going to try this!

Hi nothing elegant-thanks a lot and yes, the Wang look gave me the inspiration to throw it over jeans and a top too!
