My Vintage Blazer

Last night I went for dinner at Katsuya in Hollywood (btw that was an amazing restaurant and not too expensive unless you add cocktails to your order because they are more than the food!) and walking back down Hollywood Boulevard I walked past a vintage store called Iguana Vintage Clothing. Now I had no intention of going inside to have a look but this beautiful blue blazer on the mannequin looked so nice I just had to check it out! 

Without too much thought I got the sales assistant to take it off the mannequin for me and I tried it on, perhaps a little small around the waist area especially after gaining some American Holiday weight :S it still sat nicely and looked sharp. 

Now the gorgeous shade of blue which you can see on the outside is not the only thing that makes this a pretty piece for my wardrobe, the lovely pale pink lining on the inside is gorgeous and had me sold. I wore it today with the sleeves rolled up once to give a flash of the pink and to make it feel a little bit more casual.

This is my first ever vintage piece  I am adding to my wardrobe and will certainly not be my last! I started this vacation with zero blazers and will now go home with three, the others are from H&M and I don't dare go into Zara because the blazers in there are to die for. 

Do you have any vintage pieces you have found that are new loves in your life???

Watch - Michael Kors
Necklace - Tiffany and Co
Shirt - H&M

Nail Polish - From a nail salon, don't know the brand or colour name!
