Along with revisiting my past hobbies (including photography) I am determined to wear all of the pieces in my closet that give me joy. One such item is this amazing vintage sequin top. It may not surprise you that it is extremely rare to see plus size vintage sequin pieces – especially in this color and floral pattern. I found this piece in a Buffalo Exchange in Berkeley, CA. I saw another shopper hold it up from across the store and I made my way over, sure that this top was another cheap-looking sequin or a tiny size. To my utter shock it was a heavy vintage sequin and in my size! And of course I fell in love with the details: the floral motif, the scalloped edges, and rich teal color. The top has sat dormant in my closet, but no more! This is going to be my go-to nighttime top, paired with jeans to dress it down.
The only other plus size vintage sequin piece I have found was a gorgeous knee-length red sequin dress with gold beading. This one I found at Junkee Clothing Exchange in Reno, NV but sadly I had to leave it behind. I knew I would never wear a fully red dress and I knew the right person would be thrilled to wear it.
