INSPIRATION - THE BACK STORY

This fabric....that's all I can say. This fabric jumped out at me EVERY time I went to my biggest source in New York. It was a bit unusual but such great quality and had this subtle shimmer in a certain light (which made it even more subtle.) I took an risk and over time, purchased all of the remaining designer end-run, bolts.

For a while, I sat on it -- then it hit me. An unstructured blazer, that is soft and comfy, but has enough structure to fit beautifully and wear to work, but also with my favorite TShirt and jeans. 

I probably ran 4 or 5 samples before I landed on this final design, and the black pique tuxedo lapel is a great surprise that gives it a dressy - business option. The collar is the winner: you can wear it up, and it looks like that's how it's intended. You can then open the lapel to 'tuxedo' it, and it looks like that's how it's intended. 

The last slam dunk which I debated about tirelessly are the side waist accent ribbons. I love this look because it provides a slimming look without being restrictive. 

We will do this blazer again in another great fabric.

 HOW I WEAR IT 

To Work:  always, non-stop, almost 1-2x per week, w/ Vertical NEO Dress

Weekends: yes, with a T Shirt, and jeans -- or blouse and jeans

Dinner Out: of course! - it's comfy and elegant but 'street cool'

FEATURES

The collar / lapel is one of the top features. I watch customers put it on, then discover the collar up / lapel open option -- it's great.

The drape. This drape is honestly the best.  When women put it on, they are sort of surprised how comfortable it is, and yet they feel amazing in it because the sculpted shape is so damned flattering. 

The side-waist, gros-grain bands. You almost don't notice them, but they make the garment.
