Savvy Shopping - Blazers and Brooches



After being banished to wardrobe hell for the last few seasons blazers are finally back
and thank god for that
because
1. I like them
and
2. Beladora2.com the uber discount estate jewelry website
has the vintage brooches to fit any blazer lapel

I also like the way that both Banana Republic and Ann Taylor have shown brooches on the lapels of their blazers and jackets.


Shown with a pair of cute dragonfly brooches
but I would go for the Victorian Jabot Pin

The 8mm pearls and the bright yellow gold of this "Jackie O" style brooch are perfect
on this Dolce & Gabana style portrait neck blazer

Double Weave Jacket at Ann Taylor$220
Nice Dolce & Gabana style portrait color on this jacket

And finally a modern minimalist style pin for this
minimalist style jacket

ADORE that "Jackie-esque" pearl brooch!! The AT jacket with the portrait collar has jeweled buttons...I've always ben hesitant to add more jewelry onto a garment with jeweled buttons. But maybe they're subtle enough to not compete with that lovely brooch?

Were blazers banished? No one told me! Though I'm not sure of the difference between a blazer and jacket. I would say I wear jackets and have been wearing them for a long time. The great thing is that if you have a crazy jacket, you can wear it with a t-shirt, jeans and heels and look like you've made an effort when you haven't!
