After two weeks (!!!) of waiting for a 1st class signed for Royal Mail post delivery from ebay.co.uk, I finally got this sequined and beutifully beaded Topshop premium shirt yesterday. Oh, yes, it looks adorable, it even has a perfect feel to it, it’s all lined with an extremely soft greenish viscose fabric on the inside. BUT, man, Topshop, you’re such idiots! I mean, of course a shirt couldn’t be sold for about €100 with all that shit stiched to it, we could easily pay €1000 for it, BUT man… of course I put the shirt on first thing and what happened? *pling pling pling* some sequins started to fall to the ground right off the new (with tags) shirt! Oh well… I took my needle and thread and stitched them back to the shirt but I guess there will be a big task ahead of me if sequins and beads keep on simply falling down like this! Today’s quality, guys… it’s sad.

Listening to the Libertines’ Babyshambles sessions now… it’s not raining outside, yet, but when I went to the balcony earlier it really smelled like rain was approaching! Oh no, no no no raiiin pleaseeee! On the other hand, IF it should get colder and rainier from today on, the red peonies in our garden might stop their crazy blooming for two weeks or so – I WANT PEONIES IN MY BIRTHDAY BUCKET OF FLOWERS IN THREE WEEKS!!!! Thanks, haha!

    I hate when this happens to sequined clothes. At least when you’re in a store and it’s happening there you can ask for a discount!

    wow! this outfit is great! the wedges are really gorgeous! pitty for the sequins… it’s a shame to pay 100$ for a top and see it fall in pieces the first time you wear it :(

    “Pling pling pling” made me laugh, but hopefully the shirt won’t require too much upkeep. Good luck!

    Oh, if it makes you feel any better, it looks lovely. :)

    This is why I’m a vintage dealer! The new stuff just recreates the vintage stuff…. which despite being old and used, will still be of superior quality/condition is most cases. AND a fraction of the price.

    But Topshop have such lovely things! And Forever 21 too! I pretty much stick to buying accessories from them though.

    Love these pics!
