Archives for posts with tag: blazer

Old Navy launched a special section a while back where some of the clothing was marked with tags that said “Studio Spotlight”. This meant that those pieces were from the line of clothes that the designers created! Below is what the tag looks like:

This piece that I purchased was the Old Navy Women’s one-button blazer. Here’s a link to what the whole blazer looks like:

The creator for this line including the blazer is Shanti Markstrom.

I love buying something that has more meaning than just being some article of clothing! The Studio Spotlight tag could be opened and had a paper in it with information about the creation of the blazer! It was the most adorable thing I had ever seen!

Also, I thought I would include the video about Shanti’s line that she created for you guys, it’s really cool:

I’m definitely hoping to stumble across some more Studio Spotlight pieces more often!~

8. Something you forget you have but love

 

I got this as a gift from my aunt. At first, I wasn’t loving it, it seemed a bit too girly for me. However, over time I began to appreciate it and it’s small details that make it a bit more unique.

 

Not only are the sleeves 3/4, they have very light and dainty details from the curves to the buttons on the bottom of the sleeve.

 

This actually has 2 zippers, and I’ve always loved the shape of it. It reminds me of drawing an “S” the cool way back in middle school.

 

These ruffles were always a bit odd to me, but eventually I got over it because I love how well this top hugs me and looks crazy fitted. Also, the zipper only goes up halfway which makes it a bit cooler in my book.

So I did it! I made my very first purchase by myself, with my own money online! It’s ridiculous how excited I was! I was lucky it came literally within a few days.

Even though my blazer ($18.90) is too big, I should have gotten a small, I’m still really glad that I bought it. Why you may ask. It’s because I made a bold buy. I’ve been trying to find that perfect blazer for a long time! This feels great and I now know that I can buy a bold colour because I love it! (I love the style, fit, material, AND colour)

  • ALWAYS HAVE A BACK UP PLAN! IF they can’t return my blazer, I’m willing to see if it can be tailored!
  • YOU ARE ALWAYS AT A RISK. A risk of not trying something on before actually paying for it!
  • MAKE SURE TO KNOW THE RETURN AND EXCHANGE POLICY BEFOREHAND!
  • PICK DAYS TO SHOP ONLINE WHEN THE SHIPPING IS FREE!

If there’s one thing I’ve decided, it’s that I’ll stick more to buying accessories rather than clothes when I shop online in august on yesstyle!

I DO love my earrings! Super long and chic! They actually go past my collarbone! ($7.80)
