Coat: Scotch and Soda (mens). Similar from Asos. Seen before here.  Dress: Vintage.  Boots: Balenciaga (silver hardware here). Bag: Alexander Wang. Hat: Mens H&M. Check below for more similars!
Before you get on your high horse about bare legs now, I had a ride right after taking these pics so I chanced it.  Not happening now of course.  It’s all jeans, drop crotch pants or tights.
I miss wearing a good vintage sequin dress. LOVED the pink of this one with a men’s grey tweed coat on top (seen before in this post with creepers) and the Bal boots.  If you follow my Instagram and twitter you’ll know I sold the older ones with silver hardware.  I have a pet peeve re. hardware and would’ve given my left kidney to get the gold ones.  Had I not had them at all I’d have got these Jeffrey Campbells which look great on anyone I’ve spotted wearing them around New York.

I keep reading mags waffle on about its ‘acceptable’ to now wear sequins during the day but I don’t see many doing it on the streets. Fling a knit under it, tights and thermals and you are done – especially if the piece (like this dress) is baggy enough.  Use a thin belt for shape (optional of course).

    I would definetly wear sequins at date time as well. No problems with that 🙂
    Love the outfit to bits. I wish i could get those real balengiacas. I only have the jc knockoffs..

      Honestly I’ve seen the JC’s worn AMAZINGLY on the street. Trust me. Made me realize it’s really about the person wearing them and their own sense of style.

    This coat is really killing it and, paired with the Balenciaga boots, it couldn’t look better!
    Well done!

      Oh what colour is yours?? I know not many wear it. I understand why though. Each to his own.

      PINK! (which is a rarity for me) The hem is straight though (boooo) x x x

    Sequins are always a good idea! Especially now a lot of people seem to opt for dark outfits. It’s nice to stand out in a crowd! Pink looks good on you btw <3
