Thrift Inspiration, Doing it Donna Karan Style!!

Sequins are very much on trend this season and over at Net-A-Porter is this gorgeous Donna Karan dress, for £1165.


I was pleased to score this original 1980s sequin tube dress, which was a halter neck, but I took off the neck strap-for only £5 from Collier Row boot sale a few weeks ago.


What I like about it is it can be worn in different ways:
1. As it is.
2. Donna Karan style, with a black fluid jersey top underneath
3.With an oversized tee over the top, so it's worn with as a skirt
4.With a blazer-shruken or oversized
5.With a black leather biker jacket

Will you be in sequins this season?

m'lady, forget about sequins for this season....I am on a perma-sequin lookout! Uber jealous about your find...and please, please, please let me know if you ever see a sequin jacket/blazer? :D

I reckon your thrifted dress would look uh-maing with a fitted leather jacket. Hot stuff!

Congrats on the find :)
