You may remember my love for classics, regarding tweed. Season after season with every granted year, I can always depend on my collection of coats and jackets. This vintage blazer is one of my favourites and has been worn many times.
In my opinion, traditional pieces like these are staple items in my wardrobe. Blazers, for me are the next of kin to my Little Black Dress. They’re much like what a white dress shirt is for a man. They are essentials and everyone needs one.
I wore this for a work presentation and a small jaunt to a holiday theatre play for charity. Then, I changed shoes. To offset my packed agenda, I took a moment to take a style shot. As if being barefaced with bone-chilling breezes weren't enough to begin the day, of course I thought a stroke of rouge lips and a ribbon retro hat was well-suited and a great finishing touch.
It’s a bit amusing—when I recently analysed my wardrobe, I became conscious of the fact that I have very little velvet. Depending on the style of garment, I actually love velvet and thought that I had more of it! However, the true verdict was that aside from a vintage blazer, a flocked scarf and skirt, there weren't too many other velvet items or the likes of it in my closets. But, then I found this brooch … perhaps I spoke too soon!
