Jacket: Zara TRF (juniors) sz S Dress: Theory "Yeneth" Booties: Adrienne Vittadini "Sonnet" Accessories: Chanel WOC, c/o t+j Designs bracelets, H&M 40den tights, Michael Kors watch
This jacket is my first purchase from Zara for as long as I can remember. I love Zara styles, but not the sizing nor the prices (especially for the low quality). While in Barcelona, I caved and picked up one piece from the flagship store as a souvenir.
The jacket is from their "TRF" juniors line, which fits me much better than their Woman line (a TRF size S often feels smaller than a Zara Woman XS). I loved the edginess of gunmetal hardware plus a faux-leather lapel juxtaposed against a pretty black, navy, and gold tweed blend. Unfortunately, true to my impressions of Zara quality, the tweed yarns on this blazer pilled after one wear and I had to use my fabric fuzz shaver to smooth it back down.
After going through my closet, I am letting go of this jacket because it's not getting any wear. It's a little edgier than my typical style, plus I have several other tweed pieces. Sold
This jacket would be perfect with skinny jeans, faux-leather leggings, or a black mini skirt (which I somehow don't have, yet). If the dress hem in these photos look funky, it's because I have it folded under and safety-pinned all around. I have on my Theory "Yeneth" boucle dress which I typically wear to work with suit blazers. The length looked a bit dudly with a moto-style jacket for a dinner out, so I temporarily shortened it. Just one of those cases where something looked better in my head than in reality : )
