Heart to Heart

Please excuse the hair. I’m about a month overdue for a haircut and my appointment with my stylist isn’t until Wednesday. =/

I thought this Jacob heart print bow blouse was just the cutest thing. The print adds a little something to the basic bow blouse. It has a slim cut, so petite ladies who have very small waists might find this a little less boxy than a lot of flowy blouses out in the stores right now.  BTW, good news for Canadians (who live in Canada), Jacob now offers online shopping! Woot. This makes my life a whole lot easier now that Jacob has closed quite a few of their stores lately. Now I don’t have to go on a hunt for a Jacob store whenever I go home, I can just shop whenever I want!

And as a bonus to this post, I shall show you my J.Crew Hacking Jacket in double-serge wool:

I never intended to keep this, but the longer I have it in my possession, the more I want to hold on to it. It’s beautiful. The double-serge wool is amazing, along with the quality, details, and overall fit. The only problem I have with it is the bracelet-length sleeves:

It hits right at my wrist bone. Being the obsessive nerd that I am, I studied all the stock photos on the J.Crew website where the models are wearing the jacket, and it seems that it really is supposed to be this bracelet-length. It looks great layered over a blouse or sweater, but on it’s own, it seems a little weird. If I keep this, I might consider letting out the sleeves at a later time. Other than this sleeve “problem”, this is well worth the $200 I paid for it (purchased during the 25% off sale), and I would certainly purchase another in a neutral color if I could when it goes on super sale. As much as I’d hate to, I may have to return this due to budget constrictions.

It’s a Love Story

This is a combination of some of the pieces in my closet that I’m loving right now:

I think I need to try harder with adding earrings when I accessorize an outfit. I like earrings, but it just feels like too much effort to put them in and take them out everyday (OK, mostly because I have a lot of piercings and I can’t be bothered).
