I have nothing but love for this scalloped blazer. It has always, hands down, been one of my most prized possessions. Worn with Zara harem pants, random sheer tee, and vintage black satin clutch

That is a totally marvellous blazer and a wonderful colour...

I might have mentioned this but you make me feel really nostalgic with your hair-do... I had the same cut last year and I loved it... I'm just... more into multifaceted hair-dos because I often get tired and need a change. Can't change hair that quick... ah.. how sad.

:')

Jack Daniel said...

This outfit makes the other ones on your whole blog look...crap!

I think it's because of this TOO COOL blazer. I LOVE it. It's just too perfect. But...if it's your most prized possession, it's not really vintage. 'Cause I thought all vintage cloths are supposed to be super-cheap.

Beautiful images!
(I've asked this a million times, but who is the photographer who takes these pictures?)

Porcelain Blonde said...

Wow! I love your blog <3 I've just discovered it.

You're stunning, I love your editorial style and your photos are beautiful.

Fab blazer - a blazer is my favourite piece in my wardrobe too :)
Also, your hair and red mani are divine.

Hope it's okay if I link you? xxx

Very cute. I have to tell you, I love the haircut. :)

I'm digging the blazer though. If I didn't live in the middle of the sun, or worked in a freezer, I'd totally rock blazers more often.
