This blazer has always been a bit loose in the waist. I kept thinking to myself that I should stitch a pleat in the back to take up the excess. It turns out that pinching a pleat and pinning it in place with a brooch works just as well as sewing.
Oh, are you wondering what “Posh Eclectic” is? Me too. As far as I can tell, it’s a sort of gently deranged British gentlewoman look or as Lucky says: “a certain madcap glamour; made up of equal parts country-estate frump and the black-sheep aristocrat’s disregard for what’s acceptable.”
Inspiration from the book:
The Posh Eclectic Lucky Blogger Girl is Emily of Some Girls Wander By Mistake. I may not be able to explain Posh Eclectic, but I can recognize it.
Based on the description, I think you nailed it.
Just wanted to let you know that you are costing me money!! :o)
I'm inspired (so I shop) and look forward to your blog each day!
I really like your use of the brooch, cinch the blazer in the back. That is a fantastic idea!
Very Nice. Great creativity. So glad I found you.
Wow, you may be wondering what Posh Eclectic is (I was too ;D) but I think you did a great job of modeling it! I can't wait for the rest.
This is awesome! You look vibrant and healthy and chick.
I love how you just bust out with these brilliant ideas - such as the brooch on the back of the jacket.
I am learning a lot from you, girl.
Love the brooch idea, and will be using it!
Not sure if this is a workable style for me, but it sure works on you!
Doesn't the brooch poke your back when you sit in a chair?
(Love your blog btw)
alpharetta2008 - the jacket is thick enough that I don't feel the lump of the brooch when I sit. But I must admit I sat very little on the day I wore this! I had a busy day.
This is my favorite look. Probably has to do with my own 'gently deranged British' heritage :-) It also reminds me of the midi-skirts with boots look that was popular when I was in college. Just lovely!
You've definitely got the posh eclectic look down. The top complements your coloring beautifully. I'm inspired!
