I really wanted to wear this for Easter, but my Theory blazer was at the dry cleaners at the time, so I ended up putting something else together. There’s just something about white blazers that make me feel like Spring is here!
This is what I would have worn if my blazer was available:
I thought this blazer was a lost cause. Because it’s white, it gets dirty really easily, and I have to get it dry cleaned after almost every wearing. Well, I guess I waited too long between cleanings last time, because I saw all these little orange colored specks all over it, and when I took it to the dry cleaners, they said it was oxidation and would never come out. I was really upset because this Theory blazer actually fits me really well (the style is called Amanda B. It hasn’t been released recently, but keep an eye out! It fits really small), and the thought of a perfectly fitting garment being rendered unwearable is so disappointing! I took it to a high end cleaners down the street from my apartment to see what they had to say about it with fingers crossed. They offered to do a “wet cleaning” which I have never heard of before…and when I picked it up on Monday…the orange specks were gone!
If anyone is the Los Angeles area needs a dry cleaner that can work miracles…try Sterling Cleaners. They also cleaned a silk skirt of mine that another dry cleaner refused to touch! Amazing!
The silk ruffle top is a Banana Republic outlet find from a few seasons ago. It’s a petite 0, and actually fits pretty well. I think it’s because it has a side zipper, which allows the top to be cut slimmer. I love finding slim silk pieces! Petite Asian Girl has the same top which she’s wearing here.
The feather pin is actually pretty special. It is a recent gift from my grandma who purchased it when she was a young woman. It’s 18k gold, and beautifully detailed. She knows how much I like brooches, and since she doesn’t wear it anymore, she decided to pass it on to me. How sweet is that?
