I snagged this little glittery vintage paillette party top from the Long Beach flea just a few Sundays ago.

There she was, glistening and gleaming in the midst of a commercial garment rack jammed in between polyester pant suits and other sequin thingamajigs just waiting for someone to love her.
Thank God that someone was me as I shrieked out a heart-happy “Hellllllllo luvahhhh!” in my best Carrie Bradshaw impersonation as I snatched her up before anyone else caught wind of her amazing glory!…Rows upon rows of shimmering shiny specs, singularly hand-stitched and sewn right onto a form-fitting 70’s dolman-type sweater. Almost untouched by time and unfazed by the sea of wandering lookie-loos at the flea.
{Vintage paillettes knit sweater from Long Beach Flea Market (Second Sundays of the month, similar HERE), H&M lace pants (old, similar HERE), Mint Green scarf purchased from Paris vendor (similar HERE and HERE), BCBGirls ombre pumps (old), Marshall’s pink leather clutch (similar HERE)}
Oman I could see her making many cameos at fancy-schmancy shindigs this entire season…backyard bbq fêtes (pictured above)…quick trips to the market…walking the dog…picking up poop…ahhhh imagine the possibilities! Hey man, who says you have to save the “special” pieces for something “special” right?
