OOTD: RTW

Although I enjoy sewing, I also love buying clothes, and my favorite items to buy are blazers and pants.  Normally, 2 days out of the week my entire ensemble is RTW and most often than not its a suit.


On any given day, I can be found looking for that perfect jacket to pair with pants & vice versa.  This jacket from Sears was finally paired with loft linen pants.  Of course, I modified the jacket by shortening the sleeves.  I have several beige pants but, it wasn't the right shade of beige and initially paired the jacket with a dress, it was okay with the dress for that day, but knew I had to find the perfect oatmeal colored pants.  Finally, found the pants and it matches the snakeskin print blazer perfectly and topped it off with a peach Walmart tank top.


Being on a seek and buy venture for jackets and/or pants is such thrill, especially when the end result successfully yields a great looking suit.  


If you haven't been to Sears lately, check them out they have nice blazers that can fill a gap in anyone's wardrobe as well as the Loft.


Until then have a Great July 4th.

Congrats on a great find! I've been buried in work for a bit, and just laughed out loud when I saw your new (to me) header - what cool photo-shopping! Love the sewing machine and wine, plus the look on your face! You rock!

I haven't been in a Sears store in years! Guess I need to stop in next time I pass one.

Definitely check it out. I really like the covington and have a few of their metaphor blazers.

Love the new header collage!

Yeah, Sears can have some gems. I wouldn't have thought ... but I have found some winners there over the years. And at great prices!

I was going to comment on the new header too! I love the spool foot rest. =)

I haven't been to a mall to look at clothes in a couple of years. Maybe it's time for another snoop shopping adventure.

I love your style and often use your clothes as inspiration.
