Wear It Five Ways : Oversized Pink Blazer

July 11, 2012

It's been months since I last browsed or purchased anything from YesStyle. I would say this blazer played a critical role in alienating me from the Asian fashion store.
picture from the review post
In the year or so since I bought this blazer, I have worn it maybe twice and wanted to burn it immediately afterwards but guilt about having spent money on the blazer would prevent me from starting the fire.  At first I thought replacing the cheap-looking white buttons would do the job but shinier gold buttons couldn't save it either. 

The biggest problem with this jacket is the loose fit and the awkward length - I couldn't figure out for the longest time how to wear it confidently and have resigned myself to the fact that I can only wear shorts, mini skirts and dresses, and long pants with it.

I think this blazer would look cute with denim cutoffs and a white top but I don't own any jean shorts so I reversed it by wearing a denim top with white shorts (top left). I think floral pants (something like this or this) would look cute with this blazer, and a longer pair of bootcut jeans would also even out the proportions better (top middle; I also don't own longer bootcut's)). My favorite look of the bunch has to be pairing the blazer with a shorter white dress (top right) - my friend Cat helped me buy the J. Crew Raindrop Lace Dress recently and I can't wait to pair the dress with this blazer.
I also tried wearing this blazer closed and adding a short tunic underneath (bottom left)- not exactly appropriate for the day but could be a cute look for night. A shorter floral dress is also a viable option (bottom middle) and for the last look I experimented with tying the blazer in the back to shorten the length (bottom right) and wearing it with a maxi.

These looks are not too different from each other but it's too easy to look stumpy (or downright sloppy) in a longer blazer when wearing it with shorts, dresses and skirts that are longer.
How do you wear oversized blazers?

Also, I keep wanting to tailor this blazer (slim it slightly or maybe even refashion it into this RM blazer that I have been coveting) but just can't bring myself to spend more money on this blazer. How do you determine if something is worth the cost of alterations?

    Did not thought about this until now :)Garcinia Cambogia Extract prevents the pancreatic from breaking up down starch into maltose and dextrin. It
    also ceases the generation of alpha-amylase vitamins in the human body.
    Medical practitioners occasionally endorse this to their subjects who are diabetic patients because the Garcinia Cambogia stops the generation of alpha-glucosidase established in the colon from transitioning disaccharides and starches into
    blood sugar. Garcinia Cambogia benefits also helps prevent glucose
    and carbohydrate food from switching into harmful body fat by ending
    the growth of citrate lyase. Some physicians use Garcinia
    as a laxative to help with constipation or other health purposes such as fat reduction, a stress reliever, panic attack, mood swings and
    as a assistance to acquiring a beneficial night sleep.
