I'm kind of a big deal...

Looking sharp...


So when I stalk something, I stalk it hard. This blazer is no exception.  If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have seen it on my board. I bought it off of eBay and noticed that it wasn't carried in my size so I contacted the seller and asked if he could make one in a larger size and he agreed! So even though it doesn't close, I am in love with this blazer.  The material is thick and it is very well constructed.  I have been so into the "power shoulder"/"sharp shoulder" trend but alot of the clothes I have seen have not been made to accommodate the plus size figure.  And as you can see, I decided to sport my Motel belt again.  I love the detail of the belt and also love the fact that it is elasticized! Remember what I said in my previous post about taking risks on main range clothing? Well this belt is a size large and has ridiculous stretch to it.  Check out the leopard detail! It makes me want to ROAAAAAR (like a dungeon dragon) every time I wear it!

I also decided to give my curly wig a bit of a break (although I anticipate it getting alot of use this summer).  My own hair is just at my shoulders but I decided to style it as a "mock" bob by pinning it under.  I think I like it.  I'm not really a fan of hair in my face but I could get used to the side bang. After these pictures were taken, I was holding my daughter and she literally grabbed my bang with her hand and yanked as hard as she could.  I could literally hear the sound of my hair ripping from the root! So needless to say, I won't be rocking the side bang around her anytime soon :-/.

What do you all think of the jacket? Is the "sharp shoulder" look something you can envision yourself wearing? How would you rock the blazer?

Lastly, I know I don't say it nearly enough but thanks for reading my blog! You all rock and I absolutely love reading all your comments! <3


  1. WOW!!! Love the "mock" bob on you! You look so sleek and chic!!! The "sharp shoulder" blazer looks great on you and gives the outfit some edge. I would wear this blazer and pop it out with some color like red!

  2. I've never tried a mock bob, but I will now! It looks very cute on you!! Sorry about your daughter pulling your hair. OUCH! Kids are so unpredictable.

    That blazer is EVERYTHING!! I love the way it fits!


  3. Love the blazer!!! I will rock the hell outta one...And this look works well...

  4. What size blazer did you order? I noticed it comes in 2x and 3x so I am wondering if they run really small.

    1. Hi Anon! I'm wearing the 3x which as you know is the largest size. The jacket does run small as the 3x is listed as being for a 44" bust. If you need a larger size made, I would definitely ask! In their listing they state that they do custom orders!
