I broke away from wearing the navy blazer everyday but fell right into the clutches of this tweed one. What can I say, I'm a creature of habits and blazers/military jackets just happen to be my favorite kind.
I almost never wear this cute Jason Wu for Target dress on the blog because I seem to have trouble trying to accessorize it. I always want to wear it the way it was portrayed in the ads but then I feel guilty for not being creative and end up never taking pictures of the dress. We don't have a Target in Fairbanks so I ordered it online when the Jason Wu collection came up for sale. The downfall to ordering online is that Target doesn't seem to ever offer a sizing guide on the site, I ended up hoping 10 would be close enough. However, when the dress arrived it ended up being very generously cut. I think I would have gone down two sizes if I'd tried it on in-store. (Ahhh, vanity sizing.) The alterations to re-size it are way out of my league so I've been waiting to take it to the tailor but for the time being I just belt it. That seems to be my fix for everything. Big dress? Belt it. Loose sweater? Belt it. Leaky pipes? Belt it. Well, not that last one, thanks to the Red Green Show, we all know that duct tape does a much better job.
We Alaskans love Red Green. That man gets mobbed every time he visits Fairbanks.
