Make a Bold Statement...It's All in the Blazer
It's been almost three years since I've worn this amazing statement blazer from Lily Kai Vintage (shop currently closed). For the last few years I've waited to style it and wear it again. Last Friday, I attended the TechWeek Detroit fashion show and I thought this would be a great time to pull out this beauty.
This time around I paired the blazer with mostly thrifted items, you all know I love a great vintage or thrifted piece. As a plus size women, I hear that it is extremely hard for my curvy girls to find things that fit while thrifting. I think it takes a bit of imagination when thrifting. You almost have to see things for their potential and also think outside of the box while thrifting!
Take these pants for instance, I found them in the mens section of the thrift store, but who would have guessed, because I wanted the slouchy/baggy look a men's pair of jeans worked perfectly!
