The Cape Blazer

Sunday, October 12, 2014




Blazer: c/o Boohoo
Top: Arden B. (similar here)
Skirt: Forever 21 (similar)
Heels: Aldo (similar here) 
Clutch: Forever 21 (sold out)

Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to attend College Fashion Week as a VIP on behalf of one of my favorite online stores, Boohoo. This event gives college students the opportunity to experience the fashion industry without the usual obstacle of extreme exclusivity. There was everything from a Tresemme hair studio to dance performances to a student-modeled fashion show, all of which you will see in a vlog very shortly! 

Boohoo was generous enough to dress me for the event, so I took advantage of the chance to try a trend outside of my comfort zone -- the cape. My sister claims that I look like "a rectangle", but hey, it's not everyone's cup of tea right? I personally love this cape's unique take on the blazer. It combines the casual look of a jacket thrown over your shoulders with a sense of elegance that is perfect for an event like this. Paired with an all black look (as usual), it remains the center of focus and tells everyone that you mean business.

  1. Ah, what a coincidence! I just got my hands on a white cape blazer, as well! Haha, that's what my brother said, too, but cape blazers just look too great to pass up. You're dressed so chic; I love the two piece!
