I believe I have professed my love for this woman's style before. She always has the most amazing jackets mixed with very wearable basics. I'm pretty sure she and other editors have been the catalyst for my jacket/blazer obsession.

Why doesn't my hair look super cool all stringy and messy? I tried this and it just ends up looking dirty and greasy.

I found this jacket at Zara when I was in London and nearly fell over! Finally the Emmanuelle blazer I have lusted over! While it's not navy and not Balmain it is as close as I'm going to get.
It originally had boring black buttons but I replaced them with gold military buttons!

It also had no functional buttons on the sleeves. I had all these vintage small crest buttons that I've been saving for years. I had those sewn on the the sleeves too. As shown above. I often find things and add my own touch, like pins, patches or a snip here and there. It can make all the difference in the world like with this jacket. My mom is the one who sewed the buttons on for me but you can find a tailor to do the same. This blazer turned out so well we now want to do it to more of my jackets!
