Blazers–Ping Pong Piece No. 2

Oh this pink blazer….does it have a story! When Anna called this month’s ping pong piece to be blazers, I knew I had to showcase this pink blazer. It haunts me! Here goes….I bought this pink blazer with my dear friend Sandy during a shopping spree in Beijing at an H&M in a fun area called Qianmen Dadjie. Those trips were so great: we’d go to brunch at Capital M and shop the area. Mmmm, memories. Fast forward to Hong Kong, and I found I never really wore this blazer, so I gave it away at this swap. It wasn’t shortly after I gave it away, that I actually went looking for it and realized it was gone from my closet. Darn! Oh well…but then, fast forward to another swap held by the same people, and I couldn’t believe it, but my pink blazer was sitting on the rack! I bought it back!! Ironically, just recently at the Rug Lane Swap, I attempted to sell it again, but it never sold. I guess it’s mine to keep, don’t you think!!?

Do you wear blazers? Describe your favorite one! Plus, read through to see how the others styled their blazers.



Anna’s Island Style

I’ve actually been on the hunt for a floral blazer. I think it’d be fun to own one. Anna’s husband gave her this one for Christmas. Isn’t that sweet?! I can’t imagine Kevin ever buying me clothes…. I really admire how Ann has paired it with all white; it’s very elegant.

When the Girls Rule

Anna invited Julia from When the Girls Rule to join us this month. I really love the color of her blazer. The cornflower blue is right in line with the pink of mine. I’m also interested in trying out the longer length jacket which looks great on her. Julia’s blazer looks really nice with that pretty, spring, floral dress.

Fake Fabulous

I’d like to rename Samantha from Fake Fabulous to Fabulous Print Mixer. She seems to style as effortless as can be–and the is never, ever anything fake about her! I used to have a blazer like this Sam, but I think I sent it to one of you two when we would mail pieces around the world. Who has that pinstriped suit?

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

One thing I will never get rid of is this very old navy blue tank from a market in Florence. “Ciao Bella!” Oh what wonderful words!! I love Italy, and I always claim how I’d like to be Italian. Yet, it’s no secret I wear tennis shoes with everything these days, so I attempt to balance out a formal blazer with a tank and cut-off denim skirt.



Now…what should I do with this blazer!?

    That blazer and you are clearly destined to be together forever. You’re just going to have to resign yourself to owning that fact.
    Start searching for ways to embrace it. Perhaps put pink at the top of your DIY list! You probably need to paint some sneakers PINK!!!
    One thing you can count on is that blazers will not go away. Think of it as your second “pinky”. You look fetching in pink!

    • You’re right. I need to embrace it. I should just wear it like a jean jacket. In fact, I’m going to try to. I’ll report back and let you know how it goes!!

      Love, Ann

    I love how you’ve dressed down this blazer, Annie. The colour is uber feminine of course and I really like the casual vibe thanks to the cut off mini skirt. I bet it looks great with faded jeans and a white tee as well. Clearly you and this blazer weren’t meant to part company, ever!

    • This weekend I am vowing to wear the blazer just as you have mentioned! @judygramith:disqus has made me realize i just need to embrace this jacket, so from now on, it’s just like a jean jacket! I’ll let you both know how it goes!!

      Love, Annie
