Print Blazer & Vintage Watch

rag-bone-blazer-3-600

It’s so nice to have some print in my blazer collection! A few things drew me to this piece: the small graphic print, simple black and white palette, and it’s Rag & Bone heritage (one of my favorite brands). The tailoring was extensive on this one, but I’m happy to have such an interesting new addition to my wardrobe.

For people who are wary of prints (like myself), keeping the print small, and in simple color palettes (what’s simpler to pair than black & white?) makes them so much easier to wear.

Another new addition is this dainty vintage watch, which was a gift from my mom for Christmas. The band is so unique! It is a lattice of little metal pieces that stretch to fit snugly on the wrist, and I love wearing it with a few other dainty bracelets. Vintage watches can be so beautiful, and many are perfectly sized for women with thin wrists. Not to mention, the price points can be wonderful! This watch is gold plated, and cost under $20.

    Ah! So cute! I love the blazer, it’s so unique! I love that you’re style is so distinctly different from other fashion bloggers (and inspires me to drag my blazers out of hiding!)

    I LOVE your blazer collection! I am so inspired to make 2013 the year I acquire a blazer. This might be one of my faves on you. I really love the patterns you’ve been adding to your closet lately.

    That blazer is amazing. I’m still working on the fulfilling my need for non-patterned blazers (I need a camel one) but from there a patterned one is a must. This looks fantastic on you!

    Did you end up having the shoulders shortened? I just bought the Thom Browne blazer from Target and shoulders are a bit wide. I know it’s very costly to have this alteration done, now I’m contemplating if I should fork out the $$$ to do it :S

    1. Yes, I did get the shoulders shortened on this blazer. It’s costly (most quotes I get for this alteration are between $75 – $125), so be sure the blazer is worth the investment. I hate getting it done because it costs so much, but I’m finding that my shoulders are just a little bit smaller than the standard clothing shoulder size, so I’m a bit forced to. If you’re able to avoid it…avoid it.

    Loving that watch! How did your mom come across it, if you don’t mind me asking? Thrifted? I always want to try out vintage pieces but can never get myself into thrift shops!

    1. Thanks Amy! I rarely find treasures at thrift stores. I find most of my vintage either on eBay/Etsy, or at vintage fairs. There is a great vintage fair that comes to LA a few times a year which is where my mom found the watch. If your town has vintage fairs/expos, you should check it out sometime. =)

    This looks really really good on you. The alterations on the blazer came out well. I’m intrigued by the color of the blouse you’re wearing. I would have gone with plain old black or white (and been very boring as a result), but I like the taupe. Neutral, but still adds interest.

    1. Thanks Jane! I almost went with a black blouse, but pulled this odd grey/green out at the last minute. It’s probably not the most eye-pleasing combination I could have made, but it did the job in a different way. =)

    The alterations on the blazer turned out great! I was looking at that one myself for just that reason (print on a blazer!) but didn’t end up picking it up.

    Oh so nice Kelly! Yes I’m weary of patterns…partly b/c I feel like I can’t wear them all the time as people will recognize that I had worn it recently LOL! It looks so great on you!

    Great outfit! I found you through wendy and was looking at your blog and noticed that all the first pictures are looking down. I think it is a blogger thing to have a certain pose in which you feel comfy I always pose the same.. :p But once I pressed the read more.. I saw that there were more pictures (I just realized this sounds as a critique but totally isn’t!!!!)
