When I spotted this blue suede jacket on Kelly, my eyes nearly popped out of my head. The color is insanely beautiful and unique for a suede jacket. And yet being navy blue, still so versatile. I tried for days to resist buying it, but I eventually gave in. And do I have any regrets? Definitely not!
I opted for a size Small, using Kelly as a point of reference. She if quite narrow-shouldered, while I have a more athletic set, so I know that if she fits into a particular size, I almost certainly have to size up at least one size above her. And the sizing was right on. The jacket is also somewhat heavier than I was expecting, but I’m quite happy about that. For $198, this is quite a steal, but I’ve also seen this on sale at 6pm.com for around $130! They don’t seem to be in stock right now, but if you dig this jacket, keep an eye out for it! It also comes in a gorgeous burgundy color.
In honor of Awards season and in collaboration with FarFetch, I was asked to “celebrate the most glamorous and star studded time of the year in Hollywood…to take inspiration from the red carpet looks of 2016 and yesteryear to create an award show look that is fashion forward and Farfetch enough to rock the red carpet”.
I really don’t do “glam” very often, and certainly not to the extent that is “red-carpet-worthy”, so I took to the FarFetch website to help me put together something that I would wear to an event like the Oscars. And it was no easy task. Taking into account my own personal style and the current red carpet trends, it took me quite a while to figure out something I was happy with. I could not imagine trying to do this in real life!
Showing off some skin, particularly, the back and legs have been pretty popular the last few years. I’ve also noticed that jewelry has been fairly minimal. So I tried to incorporate those ideas into my set. And of course, outfit is not complete without good hair!
I wore this outfit to a matinee show of Kinky Boots (highly recommended!). I hadn’t been to a show in many, many years so I wasn’t sure of the dress code, though I knew that matinees were more casual than the evening shows. So once again, I pulled out this super versatile striped sweater and threw it over black denim. Turns out I was somewhat overdressed even in this! Any chance I get to wear this striped sweater, I guess. 🙂
