If there’s a staple in my wardrobe, it’s a denim jacket. I still have EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.EVER.OWNED.
I have the now quite vintage Levi’s faded nearly white, big boxy number from the Knight’s high school days. I have my own, still fairly blue Calvin Klein also from high school or college. I have several more, from the ages, but absolutely none of them fit
the way I want right now.
Lucky me! Guess what is almost as trendy as the black leather jacket this season?! (Never have had one of those and don’t see this as the year either, but feel free to quote me on that later.)
There’s the blazer, a style that’s almost timeless and I know will flatter my shape. If you click over and look at the alternate view, it even has a cute little notch, rear, bottom hem, center. Problem is, I’m pretty sure I won’t wear a denim blazer more than one season, but it’s cropped, and…
The purest. Well, with lycra, which makes me happy. It won’t ever go out of style, but I am quite grumpy that Talbots offers it only as an online exclusive, so I’ll likely buy another brand, one that I can try on first. Has anyone else notice that Talbot’s petites aren’t really cut for petites anymore? They’re running VERY long in the arms…
I like to actually touch Old Navy stuff before I buy it, but this is a serious contender. Cropped length, 3/4 sleeves and a simple, round neckline… I think it was made for me. Hmmm… Might have to take my lunch break and go see if the local ON has my size on hand.
How many denim jackets can one girl justify? I mean, surely I don’t have to count the ones that don’t fit, right?
Do you have a favorite – specifically one I can actually find now?
