There She Goes Just A Walkin' Down The Street

10.12.10



I talked about my new found appreciation for tweed a while back here, and it only seems to have grown since then. My dad left this blazer behind during his last trip and I have so graciously adopted it into my closet, wearing it everyday without fail. I had been looking around for something like it but had no luck in the shops around here (or maybe I didn't search hard enough?). I can't help but think that the blazer just wouldn't look the same without the suede elbow patches. I've been highly tempted to sew an elbow patch onto all my blazers now. Suede or leather, no matter. Wise move?

Exam in a few days. I should be studying, but I've been doing anything but. Choosing instead to spend countless hours lost in cyberspace all in the name of "Christmas shopping", all under the guise of a study break. Say, is it still a study break when you've spent more hours on break than you actually did studying? I'm in need of a massive shove up the bum that would send me flying right on over to my study desk. Any takers?

Happy Friday! Any plans for the weekend? Looks like I'm going to have to live vicariously through you all. 

Bisous,
Abi

Singin' doo-a-diddy-diddy-dum-diddy-doo?

I've been so disciplined lately with actually studying when I am meant to be studying! But I totally understand where you're coming from...I used to be the queen of procrastination! I hope everything goes well for you!

Fantastic outfit, by the way. As usual. Your style is so ridiculously classic it's crazy, but you still manage to look modern and fresh.

I've always found tweed so appealing. It's so preppy and rich looking. I'm so excited to be this Monday. I worked so hard this weekend.

the patched-elbow blazers are an obsession of mine. so chic!

CAITLIN said...

i adore tweed blazers (esp with elbow patches)! i stole one for the very first time from my mother's cedar chest when i was a sophomore in college, and i never looked back.

i'm casting my vote for patching the elbows of all blazers :)
