Sequined Bolero Shrug
Hey, I'm kinda new at this but I was just wondering where I can find a sequined bolero shrug here in Toronto. I've taken a liking to it and was wondering where I could find one!
Thanks!

^Definitely, vintage ones are the best from the 20s-50s. The new shrugs/capelets look so... cheap. Unless they're by Chloe of course. lol But those are crazy expensive.

Do you want it to be completely covered in sequins so as to look like fish-scales, or just to have sequinned designs?

Yeah the Chloe one is $$$ lol but if it has to come down to it then....... which I really don't want it to lol

I like the gold one that Nicole Richie has, I'd like to find something similar to that one that is maybe a bit cheaper! lol

Your too lucky with all those amazing vintage store in florida Ale ! ..if I ever come to Florida I'm enlisting you to be my vintage guide :p

I saw an amazing sequin cape in Virginia (a pricey London vintage store) the pricetag read 800 !!!

I'm wondering if I could enlist a girlfriend of mine who is very handy sewing-wise..to help me make one..then again most sequin material found in danish store have that 80ies elastic look to it..

Here a couple of pics of lovely sequin capes
