A TWEED AFFAIR


I love tweed so much, that one time many years ago, I was at the mall trying to find a gift for a friend, when I spotted a blush coloured tweed dress at a store I had never even heard of, Suzy Shier. I immediately walk into the store only to find out that XXL was the only size left. Figures, considering it was on sale for $9.99! I loved the dress so much, I bought the five-sizes-too-big dress, got it taken in, and eight years later I still have it! I receive compliments on it each time I wear it and I have spent more money on dry cleaning it than what its original cost was. It is gorgeous and I plan to have it for as long as it fits me (which will be forrrreverrr, hehe) in other words, unless someone steals it or I lose it (that would devastate me) I am never giving it to anyone and it will never go out of style. This story is damn true. Now that you know how much I love tweed, let me tell you about this beauty of a tweed skirt-suit I found

This Zara skirt-suit is so ladylike and beautiful, I especially love the jacket and know I will be wearing that far more than the skirt, and leave the suit for those occasions where I feel like I wanna mimic Alicia Silverstone in Clueless, haha! No, I kid, it has a bit of that vibe but when paired with the right shoes and coat, it is ab-fab and ultra feminine! I paired it up with this beautiful loose fit coat I purchased at Top Shop, and Chanel Shoes I purchased from The Real Real. And because tweed has that vintage French girl feel and look to it, I felt pairing it up with my multi pearl earrings and cat-eye sunglasses, would give it that perfect timeless look. And that hat! THAT HAT! I spotted the hat on the window display of a vintage boutique while driving around a small town on my last work trip. I knew it was meant to be in my closet! So I pulled over and made it mine! Top is from Oak & Fort, although I purchased it from Mine & Yours, a local designer resale store which occupies more than half of my closet.. I love its sleeves, they are exaggerated enough to give the top a different look, but not too much to overwhelm the outfit.

My favourite part about this suit is its beautiful buttons, I love all the jewels, it dresses up the fabric even more and gives it an extra feminine touch. You can dress up a pair of denim pants with the jacket and wear the skirt with uncomplicated flats for a more easygoing look. The other best thing about tweed for me, is that it brings out the real me in photos, the "non blogger" me, so much that I forgot about the typical "pretending to cross the street pose" to capture the outfit, haha. Smiles were coming out and just my typical self, even when pretending to buy fruits at the market, (ROFL).

Do you have any tweed pieces you love? If so, how do you like styling 'em? Am I the only one that is obsessively in love with tweed or do you all love it as much? So many questions! I look forward to all your answers. kisses.
