Do you ever find yourself at times chillin on a park bench, sippin’ your pumpkin spice for Starbucks and taking in the scenery? By taking in the scenery I mean people watching, or fashion scouting as I like to call it. Then you see it!
That one outfit that is so well put together that you literally watch the person walk as if you are front row at N.Y.C. Fashion week. They’re a model walking down the runway but then…they catch you…AWwwKWARrrrD. Not like this has ever happen to me, *sarcasm major there*.
Sometimes I just can’t help myself! Especially when it’s such an interesting piece like a cool spin on a blazer that looks like a shirt and a pattern that mimicks that of houndstooth. Now, fellow (Re)Cyclist Jasmin or Jazzy J, as I like to call her, actually spotted this funky piece at the end of lecture. Fortunately for us Elisa is an acquaintances so that takes away some of the awkwardness. Either way we were hooked so yes I had to get a picture and show it to you all.
I love houndstooth fabric so much that I had to retire my winter coat because I wore the hell (literally) out it. I think black and white checkered fabric (done right) is just one of those fashion staples that is so classic and works with just about any and everything! Though I’ve seen houndstooth or checkered blazers before I’ve never seen it quite like this. If it wasn’t for Jas, I would have never noticed that it wasn’t a shirt but a coat/blazer.
Simple put the outfit was vintage chic.
Now I’ll admit I was so enthralled with this blazer I forget to get prices for everything but never fear, I’ll get them and post them soon but for now draw inspiration from the outfit and hit those vintage shops and create your own fly girl look. Just remember to hit the pavement like a model…what’s wrong with being someone’s fashion show for a few minutes. 😉
