Needing that Razzle-Dazzle

September 21, 2010

Sometimes the morning seems inspiration-less.. I can’t seem to find anything that feels fresh and exciting.. I put on a look and it works.. but there is no pizazz. It was one of these mornings.

I knew I was in the mood for my wide leg denim, but paired with my tank and blazer it felt stale. I had worn a version of this look too many times to feel enerigized by the creation, but I needed to work so it had to do.

Mid way through my morning coffee.. it came to me.. that extra touch that would make me feel the razzle-dazzle! I slipped off my blazer.. slipped on a sleeveless blazer.. then re-slipped my blazer back on.. whew!

Now I am ready and feel inspired for the day ahead.

(Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier Blazer – Narnia, Black Vest – Vintage, Tank – Quiksilver Women, Denim – J Brand Love Story, Neckclace – Loehmanns)

A hair moment: Side swept and pulled into a low pony, I knotted my hair twice then tucked in the ends and pinned away – perfectly suited for my menswear blazer and 70’s flare denim.

    Orange looks fabulous on you, and especially nice with the denim.

    Your look is fab! I know what you mean about inspiration-less, it’s the transition looks that are the hardest. I think the sleeveless jacket is an invaluable piece. Adding sparkle helps too. When I don’t know what to wear in the am, I look to you! Thanks for the great post again- Susi G.

    I’m a massive fan of the wide legged jean and you’re totally rocking these. Love the orange of the blazer too.
