(Sunglasses from PacSun, vintage fur collar, vintage 60s blazer, Nollie top from PacSun, cutoff high-waist shorts from Heritage1981, convertible polka-dot clutch/purse from White House | Black Market,
wedge platform shoes from Nine West)
So I had to be up super early for a mandatory orientation for one of my classes and…I wasn’t thrilled to say the least. Mainly because of my stomach, which is prone to flareups most in the mornings. Luckily, its an online class, so I won’t have to be on-campus much. It didn’t make sense (to me, anyway) for an online class to have an in-person orientation, ESPECIALLY on the weekend, but aaaanywaaay…
Unfortunately today was one of THE hottest days of the summer in Sacramento, so I had no choice but to opt for shorts, but couldn’t resist wearing my fur or my blazer. I wore my favorite shorts from Heritage1981 that used to be a really great pair of flared jeans, but unfortunately were ruined; and I cut them up and converted them into shorts instead. I was so bummed, because they were literally THE perfect pair of bell-bottoms. Now I’m on a search this Fall for a new pair of flares/wide-legs to replace them. I hate shopping them vintage though, because I can never find any in my size. It seems like the only proper surviving bell-bottoms these days were worn by girls with 24" waists!
I was pretty simple, just tucking in a nice Nollie v-neck that I picked up when I used to work at PacSun. I think its safe to say that they make some of the most comfortable tees there are… I got a bit dressy by throwing on my blazer (a vintage piece that the costumer and home-ed teacher let me keep after our high school production of Pillow Talk a few years back) and some great wedge-style platforms from Nine West that I’ve had for what seems like forever. I don’t know why I don’t wear them anymore, because they are wonderfully comfortable as they are stylish. I also broke out my White House | Black Market clutch that’s been in hibernation since I got my newer, faux-snake skin one a few months ago. I love the polka-dot ruffles and I love that it’s convertible; it can be used as a clutch or a purse by tucking and un-tucking the chain shoulder strap.
Since it was for a business class, they asked us to dress for something of an ideal job we had in mind. Myself, wanting to work in some division of fashion, tried to keep it relaxed, but still stylish. I also couldn’t resist the chance to sport another blazer, which as you all know; I’m completely crazy over at the moment. I’ve been window-shopping like crazy on Romwe; they have an EXCELLENT selection of trendy suit and boyfriend-style blazers HERE. I pretty much want each and every one!
