Jacket mania

Quess what with am I wearing the lovely obi belt  I made out of ties not so long ago (you can find tutorial here  , super easy)!  Yeap! It's a jacket!!!
I only own 3 jackets. You'll see two of them featured here!  It took me so long to incorporate a jacket into my wardrobe cause I never thought of  it as versatile. How little did I know!!!  Jackets are my style epiphany.  Period.

And this is my second take on the jacket.  Mind you the first one is part of a suit whose trousers are long ago torn and forgotten and the second one was a bargain buy I bought last year to experiment with the whole jacket thing!
A propos, when you want to experiment with a style or a certain clothing item do you buy cheap or spend to make sure it's of good  quality  but run the risk to wear only a few times?


  1. I adore that belt in the first outfit! You look fantastic in jackets, I'd wear them all the time if I were you, too!

  2. What, you didn't know jackets were versitle. :) It looks great on you and focuses on your small waist. good job. only 20 more challege days. Happy remixing!

  3. Ooh, you made that obi? Well done! So cute!
    Thanks for showing us your blazer looks! I like them both, but I really like the outfit in the second picture. I can't put my finger on why, but it just all works together!

  4. I want get to make my obi until March (during my spring break). I like how you've used it here.

    As you already know, all my jackets are thrifted.

  5. what a beautiful belt! can't believe you made it. i'm very impressed. and i esPESHially love the second look here. that red tweed blazer just speaks to me, and you've styled it so perfectly. adore.

  6. I love how your tie belt looks over a blazer!

  7. LOVE your jackets I mean who needs more when you have those! LOVE love love!


  8. great use of wide belts on these jackets - really creates a great silloette.

  9. Angie,

    I love the obi belt you made out of ties. It would look great on a sheath dress in the summer. It has so many wonderful colors.

    Love the blue shirt and rust jacket w/ wide belt. The look is fabulous on you!
