What I’m wearing

Vintage Ellen Tracy Purple Blazer . . .seen here and here
Black Pencil Skirt: Forever 21 . . .seen here
Gray T Shirt: Forever 21
Bow: This was my grandma’s and it’s actually a clip on neck bow tie ….but I used it to cinch the jacket {kind of like those cinchers from the 80’s/90’s} BUT SO MUCH BETTER. I must admit that I am in LOVE with this! The jacket was a bit too boxy so this really made the look much better.
Sequin neck scarf: Vintage. This was actually once a fitted sequin dress that I cut up and I’ve worn in the past as a skirt over leggings but it’s so old now that it’s lost all of it’s stretch and works best as a round scarf. I love this too. Sorry for all the back patting but I just love this outfit!
Shoes: Jessica Simpson . . .seen here
Sunglasses: Chanel …seen here

{in desperate need of a salon visit. . . man am I lazy!}

    Brilliant idea of using the bow to cinch the blazer, which is gorgeous by the way. I don’t blame you for loving the outfit – it’s fantastic!!

    you are too nice. feel free to leave me more niceness more often.

    haha just kidding. but you are a doll. and you are one of about three people on the planet that could rock that purple blazer that hard. the other two are prince and willy wonka. =]

    it looks smashing.

    MUCH LOVE.

    I love the sequins scarf with the purple blazer. So adorable. About the bell bottoms, I am totally looking into it. The other day I wore my boyfriend’s jeans out and they were so comfortable! It was snowing and I wore them with rubber duck shoes so it looked very ‘farmlike’ but I am so used to wearing tight clothes that the loose pants were a breathe of fresh air:)

    I just got the BEST pencil skirt from Forever 21 and wore it Friday. My very hot coworker said, “You’re looking very couture today,” which was a great compliment, because besides him being hot, the skirt cost $12. Muahahaha. I love being female. 🙂
