Those who know me know that I “don’t do” black. It’s not a colour that makes me happy (usually).
However, make the black sequins and I’ve changed my mind somewhat. Add multicoloured beads, make them AND the sequins vintage… and it’s a whole different story.
A very happy, drooling-over-sequins-and-beads kind of story. So in my second shoot with my photographer/Instagram husband Giles Caldicott, we’re bringing you full-on party sequins for no other reason than this jacket is amazing and deserves to be shown off.

I stumbled across the vintage 1980s Frank Usher jacket whilst browsing Etsy one day, and I fell so hard for it I bought it right there and then before anyone else could nab it. It was only about £65, which is an absolute BARGAIN compared to buying new – I looked, most decent sequinned jackets are upwards of £180. The quality of vintage is usually really good and there’s so much choice.
(Plus you are, of course, doing your bit for the environment by buying secondhand.)
Only when I received it did I realise it was the perfect partner for my black sequinned trousers, and BAM! I had the perfect party outfit right there. Giles has captured the light on all those lush sequins beautifully (the graffitied garage door was his idea/his find) and so we have another set of shots I absolutely love after I featured our first shoot last month.
And, news: If you’ve been following my Instagram stories over the last week you’ll have seen that I went on an amazing cruise with Virgin Voyages last weekend. As the real husband Keith couldn’t go I took the Instagram husband instead, and we really worked hard to produce the most incredible series of photos which I can’t WAIT for you to see.
So you have been warned: there’s a ton of Giles Caldicott photography spam coming your way soon… gird your fashion photography loins!
