My intention was to add a new black blazer to my closet, but instead I ended up falling for this much more fun jewel-tone green. As my boyfriend so generously pointed out, green velvet runs a “fine line between chic and wicked witch”. It didn’t help that after ordering, I watched Harry Potter on a lazy Saturday, and grew worried when almost all the wizards wore something of the green velvety variety. It’s a good thing then that one of my favorite brands (that I can’t afford) made green velvet blazers look so good in the Fall & Pre-Fall 2012 campaigns.
This blazer wears casually off the rack, but I’ll probably get a few tweaks done to it a little later. Maybe slim the sleeves for a sleeker look. Maybe some contouring at the back like I had done for this blazer.
