The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?

Jacket? American Retro, Winners Jeans? Calvin Klein (similar here) Boots? Ash, Winners (here) Shirt? Thrifted Clutch? Thrifted

I'm sorry February, but you aren't the most pleasant month. I think someone (Mr. Hallmark maybe?) threw Valentine's Day in there to try and make February more appealing but I'm not sold on it. I mean, pink and red are cool and I'm always going to be a big fan of shiny hearts, but in general, Valentine's Day isn't going to save February from its low ranking.
I think that the only thing going for February are the end of season sales. Especially those sale racks at Winners (T.J. Maxx...), where stuff from obscure brands sits around and patiently waits around for me... Items like this blazer (and last year these beloved boots).  I know I danced on my soap box and preached about thrifting blazers but the exception to that post is a jacket with feather trim that is deeply discounted. Yes, it is a very specific exception... for a very special blazer.

Love your specific exception! I have never seen a blazer like that. How neat!

I always try to thrift blazers but I find it a little hard. I'm on the petite side and I usually feel like vintage blazers (especially with major shoulder pads) are overwhelming on my frame. Any suggestions?

XOXO, Lindsey

Discounts and my birthday.

The winners in Edmonton is still sucking hard though. Items are only like $5 off (the cheapest thing I found was a $15 Calvin Klein t-shirt.... really? no.)

Terri said...

so the feathers were part of the jacket and not something you added? It's a genius detail.

I wore a pretty similar outfit a few days ago, striped top, navy blazer and bright orange pants. Great minds? ;)

I love the colors (especially the red) and the stripes!

I'm in love with the fringe on your blazer. And yes, I'm with you -- I'm totally over February. The only good thing about it is that it will be over soon -- and we'll be moving onto warmer weather.

no way, man, i love february! it's my birthday month and what other excuse do you get to eat tons of chocolate! well, i guess there are a lot of other holidays for that but, whatever!

Sweet Laundry said...

End of season sales...and Family Day Holiday. These are the best things about February. And the fact that you're wearing this blazer makes this dreary month a little more bearable too :)

Gorgeous!

Christen said...

I am not crafty at all, but I wonder if adding feather trim to a blazer would be a feasible DIY. I can't believe you thrifted this. I love it!

Laura said...

Really awesome blazer, good exception!

hahaha I like the clarification Winners, TJ Maxx, I often feel like I am talking about things my american readers won't understand. Well done on scoring that blazer, it's wonderful!

You look fabulous. Like your outfit!

Molly said...

Oh my gosh, only YOU could wear a feather-trimmed blazer and make it look so "normal". I LOVE it so much I was compelled to comment for the very first time -- though I have admired your incredible sense of style for at least a year now! I am so glad you are posting more often now! Keep it up!

CC said...

Oh. My. Gosh. Can I just say that I love the stripes and the feathers and the red pants and the sparkly bag and the studded booties!!!
Awesome. Totally awesome. (Ooops, I think I just dated myself.) ;)

A dealer or distributor of Summit products can help you make a good selection. I be always thinking LEE STRASBERG is the best! Isn't that when Angelina Jolie studied? What do u think more or less it? julliard? idk if thats just music, or all arts... I absolutely love my Vitamix blender--it's used 4 times a day in my kitchen.

This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a
reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was
almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost..
.HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to
say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
