SLIDER

Structured Edge

Dress & Bag: thrifted   Blazer: Target   Boots: Urbanog   Necklace: Outrage Fashion   Rings: c/o Oasap
Its difficult for me to wear classic pieces, such as blazers. I have such a feeling of "meh" when it comes to a blazer. While I love how it looks on others, it never felt like me when I tried one on.
Then I spotted this one in Target.

The leathery sleeve peeking out of the hordes of clothes stuffed on the clearance rack caught my eye. I pulled it out and was surprised to find a blazer in my hands. I couldn't put it down though and finally took it with me to the dressing room.

Thank goodness I gave it a shot, because I am over the moon with this find! I don't even mind the subtle shoulder pads. This blazer is literally perfect, and I just know I'll be wearing it over everything! I feel ridiculously polished yet edgy at the same time.

So over the weekend, I went to see the new Thor movie, and I was not disappointed! I wish we could all just dress like they do on Asgard. Hand me a cloak and elegant gown any time and I'll happily use it for day wear if I can get away with it!
Also...Thor. (sigh)
That is one beauitful man!

I have the exact same feelings about blazer, but I see why you love this one, it looks great on you! I love the leather sleeves, they definitely spice it up. Also, your hair looks so pretty in a bread! And here I was thinking I was alone on wanting to wear a medieval-ish dress and a cape, nothing wrong with that eh?!

I was well-pleased with Thor too. That Loki is such a scamp. Such an elegant, lovely outfit. That dress is my favorite part as the color and fit are both perfect on you. And your close-up shot is SO wonderful, such a beauty you are. Thor should be so lucky :)

Kim Alston said...
