Up Against The Wall

Today’s downtown look was laid back and cool. This is my third blazer inspired look this week. It’s been a while since I’ve walked out of my house with just a light jacket or blazer, so when given the opportunity, I indulged a bit. This one comes from DVF, a sample sale of course. The silk satin is super soft (but can get super wrinkled throughout the day-ugh), the drawstring in the back outlines your shape instead of it getting lost from the oversize cut. The t-shirt is another DVF sample sale find, the only thing it wasn’t a t-shirt when I bought it. I had my tailor cut off the feather like fabric from the dress because it ended up shedding too much and eventually was going to fall off.

I can’t get enough of my Joe Fresh jeans and probably never will. They go great with ankle strap heels. I was able to adjust the strap so it went up as high as it could past the ankle, but just below the cuffed jeans. The combination really made me feel sexy. It was also a way to show off my bright fresh pedicure.

May is Lupus Awareness month, I wear purple for my sister.
