the hole stays

Jacket: Thrift. Top: H&M. Leggings: Forever 21. Shoes: ALDO. Bag: Balenciaga. Scarf: Love Quotes. Snake ring: LF. Nail Polish: ‘DOLLAR’ by Rococo
I went out to a restaurant/bar earlier this afternoon and wore the sequin jacket bought from a thrift shop about two weeks ago ish? I still haven’t had it tailored yet but what the heck, it’s fine for now. I’ll get it tailored this week (she says now).
I like that it’s trimmed in black. A bit like the heels which have a black trim as well. A small touch but it makes a difference I think. You guys know the lace leggings already. Being clumsy I of course already got a hole in the damn things but actually sort of like it now.
I LOVE this silver metallic nail polish that I picked up the other day. It’s like your fingers were dipped in liquid metal.

    The jacket doesn’t even look like it needs to get tailored! It looks like it fits just right! And the silver polish is fabulous!

    Three things:
    1) You shouldn’t get it tailored, the slouchiness tones down the flashiness & makes it super cool & laid back
    2) I love how fashion has evolved & now when we get holes in stockings/pantyhose, we don’t gotta throw them away haha
    3) I love love love the combo you put together here. I never woulda thunk multicolored sequins, leopard print, and black lace could coexist so lovely together – awesome outfit!
