Sequin & Shine



I’m kinda like a magpie in the sense that I’m attracted to all things shiny. As you can imagine, I was rather excited when I finally found these dream jeans which take shiny to a whole new level...

BLUE JILLIE FAUX FUR JACKET: Reiss Vintage Similar: here
MIDNIGHT BLUE LIQUID METALLIC CAMI: Topshop sold out Available: here
JADON BOOTS: Dr Martens
SEQUIN CROSSBODY BAG: Topshop  sold out Available: here

I’ve stumbled upon a few pairs of sequinned jeans in my time, but not one of ‘em equated to what I had envisioned in my head (as far as envisioning sequins on denim can go).

Anyway, these are from Style Moi which is a New Zealand based brand. They’re kind of rainbow’y so I knew I had to own them even if that involved paying in blood, sweat and tears. Luckily for me (and Style Moi) they were only $44.99 which roughly equates to £30. Bargain! & that included delivery. I would definitely recommend their site which is full of affordable attire. Alternatively, if you’ve got cash to splash, check out Browns Fashion’s luxury alternative here.


We are now just over six weeks away from the official start of Summer (YAY!) and the only thing that I am going to miss is my (faux) fur collection. This past week has been pretty grim weather wise so I seized the opportunity to get one last wear out of this Reiss jacket, from the 1971 collection, before it goes into storage for another year. I am in love with the ombre stripe detailing which unfortunately hasn’t been captured too well in the photos. Obviously had to complete this look with my mermaid-esque sequin bag and trusty docs. 

What're your thoughts on shiny and sequinned embellishments; wacky or just tacky?

    1. Awh thank you lovely! I'd been searching for the right pair for ages so when I found these I was very pleased with myself :) I've seen the Ragged Priest ones and they're amazing! (but so expensive). For now these will have to do xx
