Found at last-Vintage Sequin Jacket

Of course, sequins are bang on trend and many of the shops have their own offerings of jackets, dresses, leggings and tops, but I've wanted a vintage sequin jacket for ages and last week I found one!!

Its just perfect as it has 3/4 length sleeves and no buttons and its an ideal cover up for day or night-I found it at the Salvation Army for a bargainous £2.49!!

I'm wearing my Sass & Bide skinny jeans from the Red Cross Charity Shop and my freebie Paul & Joe Sister vest top, plus my other great find of the week-leopardprint shoes!!

These are virtually new and were only £4.25 from the British Heart Foundation, so another item ticked off the wishlist!!

What items do you have planned for autumn?

Ahh, uber jealous of the thrifting opportunities available to you and of your skill in picking these AMAZING things!

Love the jeans, and designer too, and that sequin jacket. I've been on the hunt for one as well and just found a pretty decent one for cheap. Will still hunt around for an awesome one.

Hope your week is going well bella

I agree with Jane above, Sharon. You always manage fantastic finds in your thrifty shops. No chance to get something here in Yorkshire! Or maybe it's just me that I cannot find anything! Great jacket, suit you perfectly! Ciao. A.
