cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: THRIFTED THURSDAYS/ three

Thursday, 26 September 2013


I'm usually not the biggest fan of vintage, but there's no denying that the quality of modern pieces isn't the same. If you were to buy a beaded or sequined piece from a fast fashion store now, chances are that half of the glitz would become detached by the end of the day. I know I've blogged about this piece before, but I wanted to show some great close up shots of it.

The sequins are all stitched together so tightly and the bead-work is absolutely flawless. This jacket weighs a tonne but it is so eye catching I couldn't turn myself away from it. The best part of the piece, in my opinion, is that it was only $12.99 from Value Village; something this quality would be an absolute fortune new. I don't find myself wearing it a lot, because it is heavy and so outlandish, but I adore it. My eyes light up every time I open up my closet doors and see it there.
