Skinny Cargo: H&M I Blouse: Grandma! I Velvet Blazer: Church Bazaar I
Heels: BCBG Paris I Necklace: Jenaveve - Forever 21
The last few weeks I've been wanting the cold to hold off for just another week. NOW I wish it were cool enough for me to have worn this blazer all day. I think it's simply amazing. I threw it around my shoulders and added the shades for a "fancy-schmancy-I-live-on-the-upper-east-side" look. I fit right in. If only that bike chain necklace was actually a strand of pearls...
Back to the blazer: It was one of those unexpected, rare finds. You know the kind, where you go out to buy vegetables and happen upon a church bazaar where piles and piles of clothes are loaded up on tables. So you go in, rifle around and end up walking out with a chocolate velvet Armani blazer for $7 and a REAL fur bolero for $8. Yeah. Those are the best kinds of days. So, this is said velvet blazer. I paired it with a boxy vintage top from my grandma and these new skinny cargo's (another trend I'm digging). Sadly, the photos don't do the blazer justice, but you should know, I kind of feel like Prince (or TAFKAP?) wearing it. You'll see when I pair it with the pirate blouse I've yet to find. Trust.
Re: The even lovelier $8 fur bolero! She (or he?) has been at home, keeping my bodyform warm. Every day it waits patiently for a new lining and the chance of being paired with a great pair of ripped jeans, 4 inch heels, a white tank and lots of sparkly jewels. All in good time.
