Questionable Rust Blazer

I'm not fond of the look of this blazer in these photos.  I may try styling it again with a different top and pants...or skirt.... and if there is no improvement I will let this one go.  I do have several blazers, so I'll not be lacking.   Also, blazers are an item I seem to find quite often at very low prices and I do tend to keep my eye out for them when I'm thrifting.  So I'm sure I'll run across one in the future that catches my eye for a good price and I'll feel better about purchasing it if I know I've previously let a less favorite one go to make room for the new.
I've already made my decision to part with this beaded drawstring handbag.  I do like the beadwork, but some of the beaded fringe is missing from the bottom and I never carry it...so I've decided to re-donate this and I'll have no regrets.

  1. There are so many wonderful items of clothing in the world, there's no reason to hang on to something that doesn't please us. I find that letting a piece go opens up space in both my closet and my mind for a new piece to come in.

  2. What size is it Lisa? I LOVE it!!! Would it fit me? Can I buy it from you or do a trade???

  3. I actually like how you styled it and think it is a good basic colour to have! A shirt similar to yours is also on my shopping list:)

  4. Lovely blazer and bag very uptown combo

  5. Beaded bags are little treasures; but not if they are missing a significant portion of beads. Bravo to you for letting it go! Though the blazer is very lovely, I think you really shine in lighter, brighter tints. How cool if it would work for Joni! Let us know what is decided upon.

  6. Oh my... I love that bag--too bad about its condition. Very pretty. I used to have a velvet burgundy blazer...kind of miss it but I just never feel "at home" in structured blazers. I think I only own one now.
