The hunt for a black blazer…

So, inspired by Wendy’s Lookbook, I went on the hunt for a black blazer today. Not a tough find, or so I thought. I brought Nat with me who’s got a great eye for the unusual and I tried on so many different blazers, it hurt. Well, it hurt having to peel off all the layers I wore today.
Broke all my shopping rules by not wearing light, neutral clothing and paid the price by not finding what I wanted.
Closest I came was this gorgeous Pied a Terre tux jacket in House of Fraser.

However, only in a size 8 and 14. Headed home despondent and ordered Wendy’s jacket from ASOS. Also ordered this boucle blazer on a whim. Gave me free speedier delivery and I can send it back for free if it’s a bit too sparkly in the flesh.
