What I Wore: A Gift

Thursday, April 11, 2013


What I Wore: Shirt and Tights (Target), Blazer and Necklace (gift), Shorts (GAP),  Shoes (Old Navy), Purse (Vintage; garage sale)

I'm sure this has happened to you: Someone buys you a gift (and who doesn't like gifts?). "It's so you," they exclaim. You look at it and think....me? It gets worn a time or two- preferably when your thoughtful friend who sees something you don't is present- and then lives in the back of your closet. It comes out every now and then...

Me? You think. Not quite.

Me? No. Still, there's something....

And it all comes together. Maybe you've changed. Maybe the other items in your wardrobe have. Maybe the times have, but all the sudden, you don't want to wear anything else.


That's this blazer. Took me a bit, but it is looking pretty fine now, right?


  1. Oh yeah, the blazer is amazing on you! Somebody did a great job - the color is fantastic. Loooove your tights too!! -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)

    1. Susan,

      I was trying to comment on your blog earlier and having such issues. However, there were issues with it publishing. But I just wanted to say, I'm happy you are still blogging and blogging about fashion, though I'm excited to see what else you are adding into your blog.

      PS the Zebera sweate DIY is cute!

  3. ooh--I want those tights!! so fun.

    1. Train cabooses are always fun and strangely enough we have fairly easy access to several, which make it fun.

  9. I've definitely been there, isn't that worst? I'm glad you found a way to wear this blazer though, it's such a great piece! I can actually totally see how your friend would think it's "you." Also, these tights are the best!!
