every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man

...or maybe we just love their suits?
voila, presenting my sequin blazer!
£10 in the dorothy perkins sale, reduced from £60! a bargain i do believe (:
i generally don't wear much 80s inspired clothing, but i do rather love this.
sequins really are my bag, but i'm not quiiiiite sure about the shoulder pads, they might need a bit of getting used to.
i thought an 80s outfit deserved an 80s pose B)
also, is it just me or does the headscarf give it a bit of a madonna-in-the-desperately-seeking-susan-film look? i'm not a huge madonna fan, but i must say it's quite the look.

yeaaaaaah, i was feeling in a bit of an 80s music mood so i stuck some marc bolan & t rex on & did some (thoroughly embarrassing) dance moves.
i know i'm cool by the way, you don't need to tell me.
oh, the shame.

i love love love everything about this jacket!
the sequins, obviously.
the cute little lapels.
the silky lining on the rolled up sleeves.
the way it can be done up or loose.
even the shoulder pads! (yes, i'm coming around to them)
the only thing now is wondering how to wear it. i'm thinking it might be too showy for my general outlandish skirt-bright tights daytime apparrel, so i think i'll be sticking to jeans & a plain/band tshirt.
which means buying new jeans.
gah. note to self; you must stop recklessly spending money!
PS you may have noticed i'm wearing the same tshirt/bow/necklace combo as the last post. well my dears this is because i managed to sweet talk my camera into taking a couple more photos so i could post them to you lovely people.
okay, so i held the battery against the radiator - but it worked all the same!
