Sequins and Hats

Today I would like to tell you about one of the finest thrifts I have ever thrifted: my sequin cardigan. 

This motherfucker is amazing.

The inside is soft and made in an open knit, so it's actually rather breezy and drapes amazingly. When I first saw it, I was like, "that is ridiculous," but then I pulled it off the rack, tried it on, and then fate had its way with us. It was just meant to be. 

Normally I like to pair it with my more casual ensembles, but after belting it with a gold belt, I realized I could wear it with my dresses, too. You know why? Well why the hell not? It's almost like a shiny peplum this way.

Tights and boots are the ultimate in leg warmth.

Doesn't hurt to have an adorable hat.
To be fair, I live Charleston, South Carolina and November is far different from New York November (thank God), but you could still make this work with a generous coat and glove/scarf combo. 

Honestly, this dress is one of THE building blocks of my wardrobe. It's light (no sleeves) but sturdy, perfect color scheme, and a good length for my petite frame. I can wear this sucka ALL YEAR LOOOONG.

Dress: Modcloth (this particular one is sold out but I found this one with a higher neckthis one with short sleeves and a VERY pronounced zipper, this one on sale for $10!, and this one comes with a belt)

Boots: thrifted (but some very similar ones herehere, and here)

Hat: Target (Men's section, y'all, I have a gigantic noggin)here
