The sudden urge struck me to toss on a blazer over a button down (collar out, baby!) after watching an episode of…wait for it…The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills…
I know…terrible, just terrible of me to watch such smut. But come on…how awesome is Lisa? And Jiggy! I know I’m not the only one who watches that show…admit it!
Well…two of the ladies wore blazers with button downs in an episode filmed in NYC, and I took a mental note to put together a similar outfit.
I wore this outfit (with different shoes) to meet Jean of Extra Petite and Liane of Petite XXS in Los Angeles over the holidays, and only one thing bugged me. I like to push my sleeves up to about 3/4 length, but my sleeves kept falling all night. This time around, I tried a little something to keep my sleeves where I wanted them.
Yup, that’s a hair tie. I had it neatly hidden under my cuff, and it helped keep my sleeves up where I wanted them! Cheap and easy.
PS…I got sneaked up on while taking these photos by a couple of tandem bike riders (as in, bicycles built for two) on vacation from Canada. I pretended to be “testing” my camera, because admitting to taking outfit pictures of myself is just embarrassing. They told me I was stylish, and then asked to get their picture taken. All the while, Clinton rolled around in dirt and spider webs under the stairs. Ahhh…the joys of taking outfit photos of yourself in an apartment courtyard. =P
