swooned ver a ovely sequin jacket ( totally plain no collar no buttons) in H and m
tried it on
ds2 said no, and he is always right.
Is there anyway this can NOT look like a lynda Beliingham cast off?

ah. Suspect sequins are one of those things that you can only get away with in your teens or 20s.

I really want to be able to wear a sequin jacket in that "shrunken" look, flung on casually over a skinny jeans and a t-shirt.

BUT I just know that I will catch sight of myself and think "Jane MacDonald does mutton" rather than "Kate Moss does Balmain"

fuck what happened there?

TheScatterGunApproach Mon 31-Aug-09 18:47:27

My point stands though. Larvley bit o' mock layering you want. Larvley.

It runs the risk of looking a bit like a shrug IMO being cropped.. A proper jacket length would be better

Lily Savage? You're in trouble if her legs are better wink

Seriously though, sequins = ageing gameshow host about town.

If that is the look you are channelling, I wish you well.
