an oldie but goodie

When I say that- the meaning is two fold. Insta buddies, you might recognize this photo~ I wore this amazing structured yet buttery soft leather blazer last month before the big move. I went out with some close girlfriends, and hubby snapped a few pics of me before I headed out. Due to all the emails I got demanding more photos of that quick insta #ootd-leather-blazer-post I decided to pull them and share. So, back on topic~ when I say oldie, I’m really talking about the leather blazer. It is an AMAZING piece- not just for aesthetic reasons. My mother owned this blazer and wore it in her college days. I have a few photos of her sporting it with oxblood bellbottoms. My mother was pretty fabulous back in her day… well she still is actually. She always was and still is the fashionista. In high school, middle school, elementary school- my friends would always tell me how pretty they thought my mother was, and how fashionable they thought she was. I never thought otherwise myself, so I’m proud to own many items that she has handed down to me. This piece is one of my faves. Sorry  엄마, I can’t sport bell bottoms like you did, but I’ll do my own take.

This night I was feeling a little rocker chic so I paired the blazer with my helmut lang skinnies and platform suede pumps. Some gold touches and a quick romantic braid updo offseted the edge to add a little love and softness to the whole look.

I wonder how my daughters will sport this piece when I hand it down to them.

What pieces do you value highly in your wardrobe? For me the most coveted pieces I own hold extreme sentimental value.
