In the rush to get to this photoshoot, I forgot my jeans at home to pair with this fab red blazer. I FORGOT MY FREAKING PANTS. My brain had clearly checked out. There was no turning back too. As this took place on Good Friday, all stores were closed and I was a 35 minute drive from home. GAH!
God bless my photographer’s heart though. He took one look at the red blazer, noted that it seemed long enough and said: “Let’s wing it.” I’m thanking the fashion gods right now that this blazer was just long enough to cover my bootay.
As per usual, while shopping for something I actually needed, Zara’s gravitational pulled nabbed me and I floated into the store. I admit – I was shopping under the influence too. I had just met my girls for cocktails at The Albion Rooms and knew that I shouldn’t have had that last prosecco. Anyways, while zipping through the mall to pick up bandaids, I veered into Zara as my Spidey sense picked up on something. Never wrong, my sixth sense brought me to a coral-coloured, three-quarter length blazer that was so bright and so fabulous, it begged to be tried on.
Zara is known for making a great, damn blazer. They fit remarkably well for the price! I slipped this one on and the shoulders sat perfectly, the shiny silver buttons gleamed, and the fit at the waist seemed like it was made especially for me. Before I knew it, I was handing my credit card to the cashier…again.
