Sequins and lobster

Yesterday I took one of my oldest friend's ( old as in a friend I've known for years, since age 11 to be exact, after we bonded in school over Salt n pepa and athletics), out for a belated birthday lunch. We went to the refinery in Southwark and caught up over lobster, steak, fat chips, onion rings and prosecco. 

I wore my latest sequin purchase - a sequin kimono, that I picked up on a whim last month in Topshop. I was in Topshop with a friend as she was craving a bubble tea. We then went down stairs to browse the last bits of the sale which is when I spotted this beauty. I love me a sequin and I also have mad love for kimono's so stumbling across this, I guess I felt like the cat got cream ( as my American bestie would say).

Even more exciting was the price tag, which was a steal at  £20 from £95, yes really!

I would say that this sequin kimono is a piece that will take me smiling from spring into summer. A statement number for sure, which is why I teamed it with a simple white vest and grey lace shorts. As I don't really like to blend in and I have a great love affair with  bright lips, I dug out one of my fave Lippy 's; Fuchsia from Sleek makeup.
