OOTD: ZARA Vintage Inspired Navy Blazer Dress

 

 

Ever walked into a shop or walk past the window display, seen something you like and immediately think to yourself, ‘ you are coming home with me’. That was my exact thought and reaction when I saw this stripe shirt and the navy blazer dress whilst walking past ZARA.

 

Who doesn’t love stripes?

 

 

I love the easy-casual-vibe-easy-to-throw-on and not forgetting how simple it looks but still has an effortless and super stylish vibe to it. perfect for easy spring and summer days.

 

 

I spotted the blazer on my way out of the store and it reminded me of this men’s version [ also double breasted ]which is my favourite too. I knew I had to take this blazer with me home even though a little voice kept telling me I don’t need.

Yes. I. do.

 

 

What attracted me was the length of the blazer hence the name Blazer Dress. I love how its almost a hybrid between a jacket and a coat. It can also be worn on its own- I’m thinking worn with Knee High or Thigh High Boots or with some super killer heels and fishnet tights for the brave ones amongst us. I also love the vintage inspired gold and pearl buttons too which helps cinch in your waist and gives a very feminine silhouette. How adorable are they? The ruched cropped sleeves plays a major factor for me too. I love anything with an exaggerated volume.  A few more buttons added and a  structured sleeves would have probably resulted in lawsuit filled by Balmain  for copyrights infringement but nonetheless, I love ZARA’s interpretation of this blazer. The price point is not bad too.

I remember spotting this red frilly number from Alexandra Rich and thinking how awesome would it be to own a jacket like this. I don’t know the price for this one [ I dare not ask ] but I can guarantee its way outta my budget but good old ZARA came through for those of us living the champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget.

Cheers. klink, klink .

 

 

I bought this blazer with the excitement that this is very special and different to every blazer that I already own but I was more excited to learn this is on the trend forecast for spring-summer 2017.  Love it when I’m trendy without een knowing it. speaking of trends, me and this blazer are going to be BFF’s for many years to come.
