Happy Friday everyone! Sometimes I wish the mere mention of the phrase, “TGIF” still made me want to jump in the air and pound a cocktail like it once did, but alas, when you work as a freelance writer, the work kind of never stops (yes people, even on the weekend).
Fortunately for me however, since my job does allow me the flexibility of concocting articles from practically anywhere, I was able to take a week long “vacay” to visit one of my BFF’s, Nina, in London earlier this month. That’s precisely where I found this badass military-inspired sequin jacket.
It was love at first sight, for both of us actually. We had been perusing the vintage clothing and bargain fashion finds at Spitalfields Traders Market on the east side (AKA hipster side) of London for a couple hours without much luck at all. Then this sparkly number came along and stole our hearts. Funnily enough, we had just been drooling over a similar sequin jacket, except way more expensive, worn by one of the girls on “Made In Chelsea” the night before. “Made In Chelsea” is London’s version of “The Hills,” BTW. So yeah, it was totes meant to be.
In these photos styles upon my return to LA, I really dig how the neon yellow stripes on my tank top contrast perfectly with the green khaki color and gold sequins of the jacket. This baby is such a versatile piece though; I can’t wait to pair it with everything!
