Back again with another Style Sunday post! This week I thought I would focus on one major piece: A three quarter sleeveless black blazer.
I was looking for something simple to wear to a bridal shower. I’m part of the bridal party and we were required to wear black. I wanted to be comfortable but still stylish. So off to the mall I headed! I was able to find an amazing black sleeveless blazer at an alright price ( if you know me well enough I am the queen of bargain shopping so anything over 20 dollars is pushing it for me.. LOL) As of late, I have been trying to shop for multi purpose pieces instead of only stand alone pieces. This sleeveless blazer I purchased was able to styled in two ways that I will share down below!
Look 1: The Bridal Shower
My simple LBD ( Little Black Dress) was purchased at Forever 21 ( shocker… I really should have stock in this store lol) This was a T-shirt Midi Dress. This dress was only $17.90. I’ll leave a link here. This was something I already had in my closet but It came in handy!
My vest was purchased at a store we have here in Ontario Canada called “Sirens”. I don’t normally shop in this store anymore as it is known to have quite juvenile pieces and your local “club/party” wear( I don’t club or party hence why I avoided this store) But as of late, they seem to be revamping their image and they must have new buyers for the store because some of the clothes in there are now more appealing to a more mature clientele. I was walking by this store and saw this on a mannequin and had to try it! The price on this item was…. $ 39.99.. gasp I know but well worth it . Sirens doesn’t have a website to shop online, so I wasn’t able to find a link to this exact blazer, but I will link a similar one here!
I paired this with simple black heels purchased at Aldo many, many years ago, (for approximately 50 dollars) these are literally my favorite shoes, so comfortable and timeless! I also threw on some last minute accessories: some silver bangles and a silver and Tiffany blue statement necklace ( Tiffany blue was the theme) both purchased at the store “Le Chateau” for a whopping total of 15 dollars!
Total: $122. 89
I was comfortable and fashionable all evening! Success!!
Look 2: Churchin’ It
I loved this black blazer so much I decided to just recycle it and wear it to church the very next day. I went to church super simple this day. I paired the blazer with a black and white pinstripe chiffon blouse with 3 quarter length sleeves. I purchased this on Yonge St in Toronto Ontario at a little store called “Katie”. On the bottom I paired it with a simple pair of black trousers from… you guessed it… come on say it with me… FOREVER 21 lol. Here is the link 🙂 . I wore the same black heels and silver bangles . I paired those with a simple pair of silver hoops in lieu of a statement necklace.
Top: $ 14.99
Pants: $ 21.90
Shoe: Approx. $50
Hoops: who knows! 🙂
Total: $ 134.38 ( LAWD lol)
(I don’t mind spending money on pieces that I can wear again and again in a plethora of different ways!)
Anyway, what I love about this blazer is that you can dress it up or dress it down! Next time I wear it I will probably pair it with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a white tee and some cute booties!
Have an awesome Style Week!
