intergalactic

thrifted blazer, blouse. asiaphillic.com shorts. aldo shoes. forever 21 bracelets. unknown ring.

I recently thrifted this kinda awesome blazer, but when I first saw it I was like "meh." Regardless, I decided to try it on and it was huge! But than I noticed the beading was in the shape of planets and stars! It looked like a bunch of bead and sequin mish mash at first, but if you look closely you can see plants on the tip of the lapels as well as a shooting star! I thought it was cute and unique, so I purchased it but it required some alterations around the shoulders as they were too big! So I busted out my ancient sewing machine and put my sewing skills to use! I literally took an inch off the shoulders and this was as much the fabric would allow me without creating puckers and tucks!

The universe is mine and you are my little fashion slaves! >:D

Wow, this is so cool. This is not a color a lot of people could pull off but it looks amazing on you and I love the sheer top under it. I totally know what you mean about buying blazers thrifted and needing them tailored. I've had to do that a few times!

Great post, thanks for stopping by too.
