Today I styled two blazer looks using Mary Wade original blazers (AKA my mom’s vintage blazers AKA FREE).
Mary Wade Original black velvet blazer with collared shirt and camisole
Mary Wade Original tweed blazer with denim shirt and vintage bow shirt
Honestly I was thinking about selling or donating them because the sleeves were too short but I saw a lot of blazers online with rolled sleeves. The denim shirt has also been in the swap pile but it works well as a layer so maybe I’ll keep it a little longer.
Get the look:
Isabella Oliver Smoking Jacket $329
J.Crew Knit Thandie Blazer $148 - Tried this on in store, fit is great.
Madewell Borrowed from the Boys Blazer
Banana Republic Stretch Cotton Belted Blazer $120
Stay tuned for Part II! Just bought 2 H&M blazers, each under $30.
My new theory is that the worse weather gets in other parts of the country/world, the better it gets in Sacramento. The nights have been cool and we’ve stayed out of the triple digit temperatures more than usual. Whether it’s global warming or global cooling fall is just around the corner. For those of us with limited closet space, it’s almost time to do the bi-annual wardrobe change-up – when the summer frocks get stored to make way for the fur-collared sweaters. Here are some of my favorites from the August 2010 Anthropologie catalog to inspire for your fall transition.
