Blazer: Forever 21
Jeans: rag & bone
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
I got a comment awhile back from one of my readers to do a lookbook on blazers so annchen, I thought of you today when I put on my blazer! As you can see from my Prepster lookbook, there are so many looks that you can put together with blazers.
You can probably tell, but I didn't put too much thought into my outfit. I actually got home from the airport at about 12:30AM the night before and by the time I showered and did a bit of unpacking it was about 2AM. So you can say after traveling for 12+ hours, I was TIRED. I woke up in the morning and didn't want to wear anything too complicated and so reached for one of my many blazers.
Whenever I wear this blazer, I always get compliments and people who ask me where I got it. There is always a moment of disbelief after I tell them it's Forever 21. I get so many emails from readers about how to choose clothing at places like Forever 21. As I mentioned before, fit is a really big factor but another key thing is to always look at the details. It can either make it look extremely cheap or extremely nice. The piping on this jacket is the detail that makes this jacket look more expensive than it really is.
My bangs are growing to that awkward long-ish stage where I can't decide to go back for a trim or to just let it grow out. I put a bobby pin to hold it back but of course the awkwardness came back to bite me as some of the bangs still slipped out and managed to give me a weird looking bald spot. So I promise I'm not going bald, just got some weird bangs! :)
