The IT Blazer
The IT Blazer
A few weeks ago I went to SCS to look for the latest Harry Potter merch at Primark (yes I need more than one Harry Potter pyjama in my life :P), when I discovered this blazer and fell in love with it. I always had a thing for houndstooth, and the checked fabric is perfect for fall season. Little did I know, that one week later half of the fashionistas and bloggers would stroll around New York during fashion week, wearing blazers and jackets like this one. Okay, maybe not half of them, but if you go on Instagram you can’t really miss THE trend blazer of the season. I would have loved to match it with another trend of this Autumn that I love, the sock boots, but this time I wasn’t so lucky. Especially the flashy red one, that you could find at H&M or Zara, was sold out everywhere (but I’m working hard on finding me a replacement ). But back to my outfit: you can’t imagine how happy I was, when I found a not so expensive alternative of the IT blazer for plus size or curvy girls at Primark, sometimes you can still find some treasures there. Cause even though I really love Zara, most of the time their blazers can still be cut very tight, which makes them either uncomfortable or not wearable for my size. Luckily that doesn’t count for their shirts. If you look at Zara Tags you’ll find more and more pieces that go up to size XXL, which would fit women, that are even bigger than me, and opens a lot more possibilities for curvy girls as well. Since I was already in shopping mode I took the shirt on the same day and again: luck was on my side. If you are looking through online magazines or blogs, you’ll see: pearls are attached to everything now. And I mean EVERYTHING: shirts, jackets, jeans (still need to find one in my size tho) and even shoes! A little detail that upgrades the whole outfit!
Perfect in combination: my new jewel of my collection, the black highwaist pants. Thing is, they’re not really new tho. This year I used my birthday to go through all of my stuff and since I lost more than 20 kilos now, I haven’t had a clue what of my stuff actually fits me now. So I put on probably 40 pairs of pants and tadaaa re-discovered my new favourite pair from New Look. I got the black backpack from Calvin Klein this summer, but it had to replace my super destroyed old one, and if there’s a sale at bestscret.com you can’t really say no, can you? 😛 The boots tho are one of the older pieces in my collection, but you can never go wrong with a classy, black leather boot – never!
