Hi folks, today I want to show off this coral/peach coloured beaded cardigan I bought recently in the British Heart Foundation shop in Middlesbrough. I paid £4.99.
This cardigan, though it’s synthetic, is heavily embellished with beading. Heavy being the operative word – it is pleasingly weighty to wear!
I think someone has added a lining at some point as this has clearly been hand-sewn.
The beading is so great. There are intricate patterns and the edges have chains of beads dangling freely. It’s brilliant!
I’m modelling this at the Rioja festival on the South Bank. The pictures were taken a few weeks ago (before it got REALLY hot here in London) and it was perfect cardigan weather.
My 1920s vibe includes summer trousers and my loose fitting cardigan, plus light grey brogues and retro sunglasses. I’m also rocking my silk Sorbetto top, which longtime readers will know was cut from a silk jumpsuit bought in San Diego. The silk has coral and off-white flecks in it, so pulls the outfit together nicely. Here are some photos from the day.
