Can’t resist an AbFab reference if it’s there for the taking!
This blazer was my amazing find from the vintage fair in Exeter I went to the other weekend *cue smug sighing*
So yes, I am the proud owner of a Christian Lacroix blazer. It’s only from his Bazar diffusion line (I know I shouldn’t say only), but very sensibly my head says “long-term investment” while my heart says “love affair”. I was admiring it with absolutely no intention of buying when I thought I’d try it on just to see what it was like… and it fit like a glove. Although I’m no expert when it comes to buying designer and I don’t have a clue how old it is (Bazar was launched 17 years ago, so no older than that), to me it was a total bargain. So that was it, sold.
What makes me laugh is that I totally think it’s a ladies-who-lunch type of blazer – I’m soooooo not a lady-who-lunches type at all. At all 🙂
I also love my brooch, which is (self) made very simply from three buttons glued on top of each other, with a brooch pin on the back. I pinned it to what is actually the belt of the blouse worn as a matching necktie… the blouse is a wrapover style and a little on the boobylicious side; the necktie hides the gratuitous cleavage. As Patsy would have said: Fabulous, darling.
