I thought this would be a short-shorts kind of jacket

The type of thing you wear when the rest of your outfit is less than conservative.


But it’s not. At all. It works beautifully with pants (hello autumn, wish I could say I was happy to see you again).


I found this bedazzled beauty at an antique fair awhile ago.


And even though my husband told me it was too over-the-top, too sequin-y, to razzle-dazzle-y, I followed my heart and ignored him (ahhh…marriage).

    yay Leroy is back! and you already know I totally love that jacket. although it’s quite rich I love how you dress it down.

    Steal your hubby’s shirts, watches and even jackets but never take a hubby’s style advice. that’s based on my own experience anyways.

    Sometimes the very fact that the man doesn’t get it is proof that it’s a piece you must have!

    I truly need that jacket. I’m not even kidding, I so adore it. The detailing reminds me of something that royals wore years ago. Oh, what a lovely find – and you wear it so well! :)
