I bought this vintage blazer 3 years ago and this is the first time I have ever worn it! I have pulled it out of the depths of my closet a few times, but I never could make it fit with anything. I love the fur cuffs, and I think it used to have a detachable fur collar (when it was new). I would guess this blazer originated in the 80's due to it's broad shoulder structure and tapered waist. This jacket and blouse marry well together. Since the blouse is more flowy it can make me appear wider in the mid-section, but the jacket cinches me in all the right places.

Cohosting #fundaymonday and thought I'd stop by! I love peacock patterns on anything, so I love your blouse! I really like your boots, too and can't believe you scored them for such a deal!
