80s Much??

Sunday, October 25, 2009
This is a different blazer than my thrifted boy blazer. As you can tell, it is a little big and boxy so I belted it. Some of the older ladies at church today commented on my outfit....probably because they've actually lived through this big-shouldered trend in the 80s!!!
