TWEED AND TASSELS






I haven't shared with you an outfit post in quite a while, so I'm very pleased to return back to the blogosphere with this tweed and tassel number I picked up at Glebe Markets. Oh what did I say?.... Glebe Markets... AGAIN??!!! It's starting to sound like I go there every weekend, but in fact I only go there every once in a while but manage to pick up quite a few finds which only end up on my blog when time and outfit opportunities allow.

So here we go, behold this 80s inspired blazer that I got for ONLY $10!! I was quite hesitant at first, but as soon as I tried it on, the fit was so flattering I just had to get it. I love the strong, structured shoulders and most especially the triangle patches on each sleeve, finished with tassels. It's probably my most "funky" jacket I have so far. However, I do believe it is one of those pieces you either love or hate, clearly for me I'm on the "love" side but I would like to get your thoughts on it?! ... like, love or yuk? I'm open to all sorts of comments so please do let me know. I wouldn't mind at all.

Being tweed, I find this blazer to be a great trans-seasonal piece of clothing. It is an easy "throw-on and walk out the door" type jacket and with the weather recently changing from winter to spring in a heartbeat, you can't never be more prepared. Just last week, the weather graced us Sydney-siders with 4 consecutive days of spring-like sunshine and clear skies. It was a massive tease of what future spring has coming for us. Though, I will personally miss the opportunity of being more inventive when dressing for winter, layering and all.

ps. I got my hair cut even shorter. It's been my 3rd hair cut since my big chop! Crazy :S
