Hello my loves!!!
Once again it has taken me forever and a day to do an outfit post. I've obviously gone off the DIY deep end. I've totally been into Valentine's Day crafts this year. See my projects here and here.
It's OK though, I hope you all still love me!
This is what I recently wore on one of my nights out with the girls.
I have literally been feigning to wear these sequins since the very day I thrifted them.
I caught major flack over these butterflies...
|Butterfly Sequins-Thrifted (Vintage)|
I remember the day exactly....
I made my way over to the 'Vintage' aisle of my favorite thrift store and these pink sequins immediately caught my eye. I didn't hesitate for one second to snatch them up, proudly place them in my shopping cart, and mosey on about my business.

No sooner than I had pushed my cart to the end of the aisle did I see a fellow thrifter pass my cart, do an obvious double take at the sequins in my cart, and shamelessly stick her fat hand in my cart to pick them up and ask what size they were.
Theeen, she had the gall to ask me if I were purchasing them.
"Because I would sure like to have them if you don't get them".
I gave her an instantaneous 'duck face' and a stare that was sure to crush any of her dreams of ever owning these butterflies! I mean seriously what ever made her think that it was okay to reach into my shopping cart and oogle over something that I obviously had plans on purchasing??
I'm so glad I purchased them too. They totally rock my world!
I wanted to pair them with a really bold contrasting color so I chose my favorite yellow pumps that I scored from the clearance rack at Target.
Since I knew it would be rather cold out and I didn't exactly want to have to wear a huge jacket, I layered the sequins with a mustard blazer.
It always amazes me how much I fall in love with such unexpected outfit combinations. I really thought that I would be overdoing it with so many trends going on in this 'fit; what, with faux leather, sequins, and bright pops of color, I just knew this would look horrible together but it didn't.
I actually like it....ALOT!!!
Have you paired any unexpected items together recently?
I can't wait to hear from you!!!
Thanks for reading.
