Since I was so inspired last week by Judy Aldrich’s “Thrift Store Essentials” – I went on my own thrifting adventure. I found a GREAT genuine mink fur coat for $40 – you can see that post here and here. Since I was testing out Judy’s Thrift Store Essentials, I found a double-breasted houndstooth blazer – similar to the one she posted on her blog!
You can throw a simple black & white doublebreasted blazer onto just about any outfit and it’s instantly becomes CHIC. Since this look is paired with jeans & a vintage-looking t-shirt, it’s casual chic. I’m guessing that this is circa 1980’s based on the style of this blazer – cut, the shoulder pads, and the size of the lapels. It’s Hugo Buscati, and I just LOVE it! I paired it with my Seven 7 For All Mankind jeans in the Aztec print (fits like a glove and soft like butter!) and a black/white Beatles t-shirt from Forever21.
I happened to have some fun photo props from a tradeshow yesterday…and I like being silly and goofy whenever I can get away with it…
And the DEETS!
I purchased these black Aldo boots like a million years old – perfectly worn in and still beautiful! Michael Kors bag, and some simple gold jewelry – Michael Kors watch & a vintage gold cuff.
What I’m Wearing:
Jacket: Hugo Buscati – circa 1980′
Shirt: Beatles t-shirt from Forever21
Jeans: Seven 7 For All Mankind in Aztec print (last season)
Bag: Michael Kors (old)
Shoes: Aldo (old)
Accessories: Michael Kors watch, vintage gold cuff
Now I’m off to find a fur collar for this jacket!
