Friday Finds - My Holiday Party Outfit

I was smitten.  I mean Sandra usually has that effect, but when Dana over at What the Frock? featured this great look:
Sandra Copy Cat Style via What the Frock

I was head over metallic reptile skin heels.  I started collecting everything into shopping carts because I had just decided what to wear for our respective work holiday parties.  The total came to $248 before shipping. I also had a nagging little voice in my head reminding of my renewed dedication not buying new without searching for it second hand.  So I trolled Etsy's vintage section instead.  There's more than one way to skin the cat.  Ollie, cover your darling ears.

Here are the items I scavenged in my copycat of the copycat look:
Counterclockwise from L:
Rewind Finds - Vintage Gold and Bronze Sequin Dress
T's Vintage Emporium - Black Velvet Single Breasted Blazer
Vintage Objects Shoppe - Vintage Rhinestone and Pearl Earrings
Vintage Jewelry Etc. - Multi Chain and Pearl Bracelet
Jenny Elkins - Vintage Black Patent Clutch
Must Love Vintage - Bronze Amalfi Pumps

I haven't pulled the trigger yet, but the total came to just about $170.  What's your take on sequined dresses?  What are you pulling out for the holidays?


  1. I absolutely adore sequined dresses and I really wish I had an excuse to get one! SO cute!!

  2. I want one so badly, but I know I can't pull it off right now. I got an Express catalog in the mail (not sure when they started sending those...) and there were a LOT of sequins dresses/shirts/shorts/skirts in it!

  3. hehe, love your copycat of a copycat! I'm pretty sure there's no way I'd be able to pull off a sequined dress (let alone even wear heels, omg), but I bet you'd look fabulous in one!

  4. Ah! That vintage dress is amazing!! Get it get it get it!
