Adventurous?

I am far more adventurous with my surroundings than I am with what I wear. I love quirky decor but am quite classic in my clothing choice!So I am wondering if I will ever pluck up the courage to wear this sequined vintage top I found last week? Kendalee's online summer picnic today might be the perfect opportunity![The orange fabric in the top pic is from a new blouse which I just reconstructed. What was I thinking buying a blouse with ruffles. It's all unpicked, restitched and quite classic now!]
The freshly painted frame from yesterday has already come in handy!!!

You are a treasure! Love the frame with the clothes.
Can't believe you unpicked the ruffles - I leave mis-buys in the cupboard, and then eventually give them away.
Please wear the sequins sometime and take a pic .. be adventurous (-:

Oh yes, it's PERFECT for a summer picnic! Thank you for wearing it first for our special occasion :) I hope now that you've taken that virtual leap you'll get LOTS of wear out of it. Although, it is a beautiful thing to just look at too and how lovely it is with your newly painted frame...

My mom had a top like that in mint green. I loved it.

I say wear it with some jeans and flip flops.

Oh, it's beautiful, I hope you wear it! The beads along the hem are lovely.
I know what you mean about the ruffly blouses - I remember when the school secretary used to wear them, and nothing will make that kind of thing trendy again in my eyes!

I hope your weather is better than ours in Jozi. If I wore that top today it would be hidden under 5 other layers...

Oh, definitely wear it to kendalee's picnic! I am unfortunately wearing coat, scarf and mussie today! PS I also love your frame - I have two empty white frames standing against my living room wall - they are both quite old and I love them just like that!

It is sooo beautiful. I remember my mother had one like that and as a kid I used to take it out of her closet just to admire.

Great top, lovely occasion!! Why not?! I think so now and again it's nice to break rules,although I am the same with clothes, I don't like overdoing it ... but I do like eccentric accessorisies which give even to most boring outfit that special touch!
