Skirt? c/o Jacob (here) Blazer? Thrifted Boots? Aldo 
Necklace? gift from Merl (here) Purse? Thrifted

I don't know what I like the best; my new white skirt, my thrifted blazer or the fact that when I put them together, I look like a 90's stewardess... in the best way possible.
I've been wanting a white pencil skirt for a while now, as can be evidenced by multiple pins on this Pinterest board... The problem with white skirts is that they are white. And 59% of potential white skirt candidates are unsuitable right off the hanger because they are transparent. My favourite is when manufacturers line a light weight white skirt with a kleenex and expect it not to be see through anymore... Alrighty then. 
When Jacob sent me this skirt, I prepared myself to be disappointed. But I wasn't. Because the lining and the material itself were both sufficient and that perfectly inserted zip slit was the icing on the cake.
And the blazer? I know... another blazer. I assure you it was an accident. When I had Merl over a few weekends ago, I figured the least I could do was show her my familiar stomping grounds of Talize. But we were both not in the mood to thrift (it does happen very occasionally...) and so we lazily strolled the aisles for 10 minutes without serious effort. In the dress section I found this blazer, with a matching dress no less... I showed it to Merl, she told me to try it on, I gave her a feeble refusal; something about being too lazy, and then she got firm and insisted me try it on. And I did. And I loved it. And I took it home to find its place among my other blazers. Battling against the blazer takeover in my closet is useless at this point...

What a gorgeous blazer. I love the buttons and the detailed sleeves. Yup that skirt's slit is amazing or it's just that fierce leg pose ? :)

I love the gold detail on the blazer!

This blazer looks like it was made for you, it fits that well. I love how Merl's necklace compliments the buttons, too!

Also, you're a very talented lady to be able to wear a white skirt. I'd have coffee on that in two seconds. Props to your superior motor skills.

Blazers are something I really lack in my wardrobe. I definitely need more.

You do look like a fabulous 90s stewardess!

Man, I would love to wear this exact outfit to work. The thrifted blazer with the white skirt is a beautiful combination. I love how you can always make something a little more edgy, a girl after my own heart. You look hot as always.

I love Pinterest and thrifting!! I visted Talize for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Its in Delta British Columbia. I usually go to Value Village...hate their prices. I liked Talize and I got a pair of DKNY Jean Capri's, a Tee and some great costume jewelry and a small scarf to make a watch strap out of as suggested on the Talize website. You look great in the blazer and I too have a blazer closet!
