Mixed Metals

acne velocite jacket

I can’t stand the promotion of sequins during Christmas and New Years.  Doesn’t it make wearing them a cliche?

Yea it’s still freezing out but nothing thick leggings can’t fix.

Jacket: ACNE. Try here on this inexpensive site I found. Sequin top and skirt: Clock this cropped top to wear with skirts or jeans. Vintage. Boots: Thrifted. Bag: Chanel. Shades: Ray-Ban
….which is one of the reasons why I love wearing anything year round.  I wore this to do a couple of things in the city yesterday.  I ended up at City Bakery on 18th street per my Instagram (errrm the best hot chocolate fyi). 
You’ve seen the skirt more recently here in London with the navy knit jumper but by God did I like the combination of silver and gold sequins together – especially with the oldest and DIY hacked beat up boots.

You’ve seen the jacket before in this post with heels but went with the flat boots to get around.

    • Karen says:

      LOL! nothing old shoes and a ‘sensible’ jacket or coat can’t make wearable ; )

    • Karen says:

      ah thank you lovey : )

    • Karen says:

      I feel they almost feel better during the day since it’s more cliche to wear them at night (at least for me).

    • Karen says:

      Thx! I’m STILL loving this jacket. Best buy for this winter (and the next)

    Currently setting the second image as all of my lock screens! Who knew gold and silver sequins could look SO fabulous together? Seriously in love.

    • Karen says:
