Interesting Blazer


When I saw this blazer I thought it was interesting. The cut and color are great. But I really like the interesting sash or ties. You can tie the blazer to close it but I love having them just dangle. It makes the blazer unique and have a bit more visual interest. I mean, for me anyway. But since I 'm the one wearing it, I guess that's all that matters, no?

I'm wearing some boyfriend jeans to make the look a bit more casual-chic. And adding a huge cuff gives them a different look. And then I had to wear these big 'ol high shoes. Sometimes my short self needs a bit of a lift. And these shoes will certainly do the trick.









Blazer: Gap
Jeans: Rich and Skinny
Drapey Tee: Ella Moss
Shoes: Dolce Vita

You don't look short in photos (maybe it's those amazing high shoes!) Very pretty blazer- I love the colour and style and I've said it before but I'll say it again- you are the queen of jeans!

Oh, I really like this...the color and styling is (yes) interesting, but I also think, it is very flattering!

Loved being on the Wendy Brandes team with you...I told her we needed diamond studded helmets!

I do like those ties, kind of like an extension of the lapel. and unique pieces are the best, they really make for a standout closet!

The ties on that blazer are so unusual, but in a wonderful way. I love blazers, but there are only so many ways that you can make them look different, and this is a brilliant one that I never would have thought of. I love the colour, too! Completely sympathise with your short self needing a lift, too- my 5'2" self needs a lift almost every day :)

That's a really cool blazer! Love how you can make it look totally different by tying it or leaving it open. And I love your shoes!
