Another Kind of Flower

Speaking of Mom... And flowers... I broke out my Mama's vintage Escada flower yesterday. I think it brought me good luck as I had one of the best days I've had at work in quite a while. It wasn't thanks to all the stares and comments I got. Normally at work I (and everybody else) wear a hoodie and sneakers. Needless to say this look confused people. One person even asked me if it was my birthday... Because apparently that's the only day anyone is aloud to "dress up". My love for fashion is such a lost cause in the work place. Anyhow, today I'm back in my sweatshirt and jeans (and I have to admit my feet are a lot happier!). The weekend is just around the corner... Hooray!

  3. Love the flower! I have one similar from Holt Renfrew that I occasionally pin on dresses and blouses. It kind of instantly makes me feel more perky! And I say you should wear it more often to work ;) There just aren't nearly enough occasions to dress up these days!

  4. Thanks, Beth! The blazer is from Nordstrom. The brand is Necessary Objects! It fits perfectly and the price was right :)

  6. My black blazer is from Nordstrom too- found it on the sale rack! They've got such great staples!
    We have the same problem here in Seattle- no one gets dressed up except for a night on the town! Must be a NW thing?
