I think most of you know by now how much I love a charity shop bargain, right? Well, a couple of weeks ago I did the rounds of my favourite ones in a nearby town and picked up some fantastic pieces. One of them was this sequin face top that cost just a few pounds. I was instantly drawn to the unusual design – I have never seen sleeves like this before – and obviously the sequins. I mean, that face is just so cute!
In all honesty, I wasn’t too sure about it at first. But after picking it up and putting it down a couple of times I thought I may as well take a gamble. I couldn’t be bothered to try it on (I rarely use fitting rooms in charity shops) so I just had to hope. As soon as I got home I tried everything on and thankfully it all fit. To my surprise this top actually fits better that I’d anticipated. It’s true what they say: someone’s trash is another one’s treasure!
I’ve worn this top with jeans and trainers for a fun, casual look, but I wanted to try dressing it up a bit. It would work well with red, pink, white or black trousers, but the shimmer of the sequins also pair well with these silver trousers. (I featured them a few weeks ago with a hot pink top). The cute round sequin face top and polka dots seem to be a perfect pairing. The oversized round sunglasses were a natural choice too – I could definitely see the “person” on the top wearing these! These are my “Iris Apfel” sunnies – you may remember I wore them for the latest Match Made in Seven post.
I added a black and white bracelet and glass ring that I bought in Italy many years ago. For an added bonus I discovered a black and white watch which I won a couple of years ago and had forgotten about. It matched the rest of my accessories a treat, although the battery needs replacing so it was no use for telling the time!
SHOP THE LOOK
You can see my nude bra from the side (that’s not a side boob flash!). I could wear a bralette or a vest underneath to avoid this though.
