Monroe and Main. I have been searching for a blue blazer for awhile and was glad to have found one. I've never shopped Monroe and Main before. I reviewed their site and there were some hits and some misses. Some pieces catered to the more mature woman or as Wendy would say, "Women of a certain age" and there were a few pieces that were on trend.
The blazer is a stretch satin cotton blend with a light sheen to it. I actually like my blazers to be fitted and this one fits kind of loose (nothing a tailor can't fix). I also liked that it was a one button blazer because I feel like one and three button blazers have a tailored fit and work best with my my round hero of a stomach. The navy color of the blazer also worked well with my complexion. Most navy colors are dull and make me look dull. This color navy actually had a little umph to it. They also have this blazer in fuchsia, which I'm dying to get. Overall this is a great blazer with a nice cut.

Friday's post was about pleated trousers and I bought a pair myself from ASOS. As a very hippy person, I'm always self conscious about trousers and how they fit, which is why I normally size up and then get my pants tailored. I love how these trousers drape over my hips and thighs. The light pink color makes them versatile enough to wear with so many other things in my closet. They're great for work and I would wear them with a sexy little top for going out at night. The pants have an elastic waist which I would normally scoff at,but there is a tie waist belt that covers the elastic so they were good to go.
