A present from Mum.

A little while ago you may remember that I entered the Lashes of London wishlist competition, well my Mum saw it on my blog and decided to treat me to the sequin biker jacket! Luckily the jacket was in the sale and had been reduced from a whopping £130 to just £39, a really good price for a lovely, well-made jacket. I don't think I'll be wearing it out until the weather has improved because it's very much a dressy jacket, unlikely to keep me very warm! 


The lovely guys at Lashes included this huge lookbook/poster in with the package, and it's really pretty, it even has a couple of cute pups on it!


As you can see, my collage making skills aren't too amazing just yet! Lashes describe the jacket as 'antique gold' and I would definitely agree, it really has that burnished look to the gold colour so it isn't too flashy or sparkly. I can imagine this jacket being perfect for a night out, and the biker cut gives it a slight edge. 
Here is a close-up detail of the sequins. I wouldn't describe them as typical girly sequins, more like a mature grown-up version! I love how sturdy this jacket is, you can tell it's good quality from the first moment you glance at it, so I definitely think it is worth £39. If you feel like treating yourselves, you can purchase the jacket here! It looks like all of the sizes are still available too.

    1. Ah yes, I totally agree, I hate it when there's only a couple of pounds off - it's hardly worth putting it in the sale then! xxx
