{Almost daily outfit of the day} Ode to a vintage sequin jacket 1.16.12

Buffalo Exchange vintage sequin jacket: thrifted J Brand jeans; thrifted Gap long-sleeved tee; Dolce Vita ankle boots; Bloom clutch

Dear vintage sequin jacket,

We met innocently enough. It was an unusually warm January day, leading a girl to dream of picnics and leisurely strolls through the park. I was wandering through Buffalo Exchange, browsing through racks of mini dresses, sheer metallic blouses, silk tunics, plush vintage furs and crushed velvet overalls when my hand brushed against your embellished sleeve. You winked at me knowingly, sequins reflecting the bright overhead light.You knew I would have a difficult time resisting you. I examined your rows of white bugle beads and tiny embroidered sequin flowers. I was entranced by your delicate lavender and pale green beading against white silk. We considered each other. I asked myself if I really needed another vintage sequin jacket. Were you worth $16? Did I even have room for you in my nearly overflowing closet? And what in the world was I going to wear you with?

So here we are together, vintage sequin jacket. I'm pleased with how you elevate an ordinary Gap long sleeved tee to something special. I'm glad you are in my life. I can't quit you, vintage sequin jacket. We were meant to be.


  1. Love the jacket! I scored a vintage black beaded jacket recently and had thought to wear out one night. Forget that though - I'm going to pair it over stripes and wear it more casually. Love the look!

  2. That is one gorgeous jacket. With its pale colors it is different from most and looks fab with your jeans. Definitely worth the price!

  3. That jacket is gorgeous!! You find the greatest stuff!!!!

  4. That jacket is perfect for you--elegant vintage style but also sparkly and fun.

    (Cheers! Have been reading for a while but never commented before.)

  5. I knew I wasn't the only one who talked to her clothes!!
