Take one Special Top…

sparkle top
Now I don’t know about you but there is nothing I hate more than a beautiful piece of clothing just hanging, longing in my wardrobe long after the event it was bought for has taken place. And with wedding season upon is it means fancy finery galore.
The one thing I decided to do last year regarding wedding attire, was to buy something that i actually could wear again and again. It was a beautiful teal dress that dressed with the right silver and sequinned accessories and a little fascinator it was church wedding perfection. But come summer i plan on donning it with some black lace-up sandals, a denim jacket and some big black framed sunglasses.
I no longer felt bad investing in the piece as I knew i would happily wear it again, and not just to weddings.
So i started looking for a piece for this year that could work in multiple ways.
I started perusing Coast as it’s always my go-to for occasion wear (btw, check this beauty out.. Oh hello monochromatic perfection)
And after spending waaay too much time browsing the pretty dresses (they suck me in every time!), I found the most amazing little sequinned top.
It got the creative juices flowing as I sat there staring at it in all its beauty.
You know me by now, I am all about the remixing, and this pretty baby has potential.

Above are the 3 ways i came up with immediately.

Firstly for the occasion itself, I love the idea of it with a high waisted black skirt (which is also Coast) for full on glamour. A sweep of red lipstick a perfect little clutch and killer heels. I love this outfit for making a chic statement.

Then casually styled with some boyfriend jeans, with a  white vest underneath it and flat studded shoes.. Hello fun, fabulous and comfy. Perfect for lunch with the ladies.

Finally another smart occasion, but this could work with both smart shoes like the Clarks simple elegant nude pumps above, or with a pair of nude wedges. The cream wide leg trousers would work beautifully with the cropped boxy fit of the top.

I don;t know about you but I am totally sold and apparently have a gaping big sequin top hole in my wardrobe 😉

When you shop for fancy finery, do you buy with the mindset of a one off wear or to remix it again and again?

And what do you think of the sparkly top, how would you wear it?

    This top is gorgeous Rachel, this could be worn with so much. I'm thinking red trousers, full on glamour for a night out too x
