Yes I know, Graphic Pairings are to die for. If I could, I would wear the following clothing combinations every single day: all-black, all-white, or black and white. As tempting as it was for me to pair this classic black and white blazer with black jeggings, or a black dress, I decided to pair it with this dress you have seen before here.
I think I am in love with Dorothy Perkins dresses, although I am unsure of the sizing. I am usually a 16 in her clothing, but I purchased this exact same dress (different color) in a 14 and it fits much better. Although I need to get the waist nipped in a bit. But the pleats allow for some forgiveness. And the fitted waist of the blazer while buttoned gave the illusion of a good fit.
Paired with classic black tights (I own over 30 pair, I counted...smdh) and my patent leather oxford school marm shoes, this blazer remains trendy but has become classicized (real word?) at the same time.

|All these pleats!!! I couldn't even imagine ironing this. Black wood bracelets mimic the stripes in the jacket.|
|I live for a nipped-in waist moment...|
|I'm having a love affair with these shoes lately. Don't know why.|
