Drink Milk


Some say that the Quest for the Holy Grail has something to do with Jesus and a cup. Others think it is a Monty Python movie. For me, it a hell of a lot shinier than that. After months of searching for a SEQUIN JACKET, salvation has finally come! Thanks to the eagle eyes of my beloved roommate (praise be to Tobi Reid), she spotted this sequin sweater for only $25 at the local consignment shop. Its so beautiful that I can't keep my hands off it. Let us rejoice!


Doc Martens and a plaid shirt, to add a little contrast to all that glitter.

Oooooh I love it! It's so much like this $425 Kate Spade one I saw this weekend:

Except that actually, yours might be slightly more epic.

I've wanted a sequinned cardigan ever since I saw one on, um, Kanye West... but still! You have the best thrifting luck out of anyone I have ever come across. The rest of your outfit is also amazing as ever!

That's the deal of the century, I salute you!
You can do so much with this sweater, dress it up or down, because of it's classic cut. It's a great find.

OMFG. Woww. I just sort of stumbled across your blog. No. That's a lie.

Being my usual clumsy self, I tripped and landed on it and then screamed. You dear, stole my hair. But you know, your hair is 7 years older than mine. Still, applause for your hair stealing. :D

Either way, lovviiinnggg the blog. And the plaid shirt there.

Check out my blog.

MORE SEQUINS! you do dazzle me. It's amazing how you manage to turn a disco jacket into uber hip grunge.

louise or valentine said...

and then god said let us rejoice and so they did.
dionysius concurred and there was much gaiety throughout the land.

Mo said...

Wow, that jacket is amazing. Times about a bijillion and seven.
i also wanted to thank-you for rekindling my love for all things shiny and wonderful. My obsession with the fantasticness of sequins started to die out at around age 10and has been brought back in full force because of your blog, I'm loving it.

Gorgeous! I'm on a similar quest...hopefully I'll find my grail too.

Þomeline said...

sequins <3

Damsels said...

definitely love it .. lol when i saw it i thought about your post where you said you've been looking for one and wanted on so bad so i was very happy to see you found it ..

discothequechic said...

yesss, love the shirt. I'm not usually huge on sequins, but on a shirt I can handle them, especially with the kind of panel effect!

and the DMs are great, I'm guessing they're the shoes? which are so refreshing amongst a sea of boots.

niicee!

chloe said...

I have to say this is probably my favourite outfit you've ever posted. It's perfect! Those sequins are amazing! And with the plaid & Docs.... But I also really loved the one from the post before.

What a fabulous ensemble! If more gals knew how to style an outfit like you do the world would be a better place!
