Cargo Pants? Mexx, thrifted
Silk jacket? Thrifted
Denim shirt? Gap
Boots? Charles David, thrifted
Bag? Roots (bought with b-day gift cards...)
Belt? Thrifted

I really, really like this outfit. Sometimes I make up an outfit in my mind and my mirror sends me back to change. This time my mind made my hand high five the mirror... which shattered it and got me 7 years of bad luck but 1 last day of looking good. Cargo pants, brown leather and sequins in one outfit? This outfit is stacked... Kind of like having LeBron, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosch on the same team (and no, I don't know those names off the top of my head, I asked Matt 'What's that team that has, like, all those good guys on it?'...)


When I bought this jacket last week, the cashier made a comment about me being something colourful for Halloween (the jacket came with a matching dress...because more is more is more) and I told her it was not for Halloween but this is just how I roll. And then when I wore this out, my brother-in-law made a Halloween crack at me too... too bad the lady at the thrift store said his funny line first. Seems like the brother-in-law needs to learn that jokes, unlike sequins, are all about quality, not quantity.

It's a beautiful jacket. You wouldn't have heard any smart remarks out of me!!

There's something kind of cool and effortless about this look, with something seeming a little off place in a good way. I like!

I love this outfit as much as you love it. Everything about it is perfection!

I like the jacket. And those boots. Heck, I join your mind in high-fiving you. I look forward to Halloween since that's when the thrift stores pull out the cray-cray. Probably for costumes but I loves sequins year round.

ha! so good, so very good. i love the jacket. and for real, what do the thrift lady and your bro in law know anyway? a whole lotta nothin'. and i think it's super awesome that you made reference to the miami heat. my dear sweet husband (who is also a matt, but i think you may know that) is a south florida boy who LOVES that team. he about jumped for joy when lebron announced he was moving. but i digress, you look fabulous and i've never met (or seen on the internet) anyone who can wear sequins like you. :)
(and i love it when the word verification thing is an actual word! this time it is 'sizes'. how funny is that?)

I LOVE this outfit. cargo pants with a twist is one of my favorite looks and you look great.

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

I love your harlequin jacket and how you have paired it with the combats and the denim shirt. Totally unexpected but it totally works.

MerciBlahBlah said...

I don't even believe this - I have the doppleganger to this outfit on today. Seriously. Your button down is way better than my grey tee though (which I switched to a black button down before I walked out the door). Needless to say, I LOVE this outfit. rock on.

Merci,
Shannan

Oooo, great jacket! You always find the most amazing sequin items at the thrift store. It makes me extremely jealous.

Love it! This outfit totally captures that edgy yet glamorous vibe you do so well. Great boots!

Farm Girl Fashionista said...

Love the way you "stacked" it!! lol And...that is so funny...I just asked my husband if I should feel bad that the thrift store has stuff on their Halloween racks that I would wear every day?! Even though my Halloween costume was from the same store and it was on the "normal" racks...check it out...

You always find the best shiny jackets! I swear if you lived closer to the Quebec border, I'd be stalking you to find all the good spots.
I'm glad I am not the only one who's daily wear sometimes gets mistaken for halloween...

Elaine said...

AWESOME outfit, I've been reading your blog for a while now and I enjoy the way you mix things up. P.S. I want that jacket!

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

Ok, well now you need to wear the dress! The jacket is totally awesome. Like awesome enough to make me shame myself for not going thrifting recently because look at the kind of amazing thing I've been missing. But seriously, please wear the dress soon. And I love your dig at your BIL, seriously LOL'd.

xoxo, Ashley

Love the way you rocked that jacket! Pairing it with neutrals was just perfect.

Glitter Scrubs said...

I love your sequined jackets. This post is like a little christmas gift. Or a halloween gift? Now you say there's a dress that matches eh? Pics or it didn't happen! Seriously a full out sequined dress? I need to see this.

Cinderella's folly said...

LOVE this. I know what you mean about getting smart comments; I once got asked by the Value Village clerk if I was dressing up for a Bon Jovi tribute concert when I bought an electric blue silk jacket. ($7! DKNY! I still stand by its sheer awesomeness.)

Jen said...

What a funny story! I love when people make snarky comments (and especially when you can let it roll off your back or better yet, make a smart remark back)!

I would do frowned upon things for this jacket. Like steal candy from a baby. And I love babies. But that's how much I love this jacket.
