Sequin Blazer

Happy Wednesday, this great sequin blazer was another tailoring project that my talented mom helped me with. This blazer was purchased for $5.00 at the thrift store. The alteration that my mom completed was to pull back the front of the blazer and sew it down to give it a tuxedo look. It is vintage and I thought this would give it a more up-to date look. I would call my mom a risk taker when it comes to creativity. She is always willing to try a project. She always says before she starts, "are your sure it looks nice the way it is." I say yes, this item it is not me and or what I have in mind when I bought it. So, then the project begins, but that is the great thing about thrift store finds, you don't feel to bad when they don't work out because you haven't invested too much money.

I think a sequin blazer is a great option for a holiday party. One of my favorite things to wear are skinny jeans. A way for me to dress them up for a party is pair them up with a sequin blazer. If you are still needing something for a holiday party, the first two of these sequin blazers are under $100!
