Thrift inspiration, Doing it Tuxedo Style!!

Blazers and tuxedos are very much in trend this season, evidently at Balmain, shown off by the the gorgeous Gywneth Paltrow

Kate Moss is a great fan of the tuxedo and wears it dressed up and down

I was lucky to spot this gorgeous lace tuxedo by Ronit Zilka at the boot sale this weekend for only £3. It is a very fitted style and I will wear it with jeans and also a LBD for a dressier occasion

Will you be working a tux this season-formally or informally?

you so loooove blazer jackets! I love them too! I'm rockin out this summer in my favourite tux jacket from zara thats black with cream linings. It's really thin so it can be worn at night through the summer. That one you found at a boot sale is an absolute BARGAIN!!!

I love the look of a blazer with jeans. And there is so much you can do with them, adding a cute scarf or broach to change the look.

AsianCajuns said...

Oh definitely! I love how a tux jacket pulls everything together in an unexpected way. You look so chic in yours!

I love that tux jacket on you. It is awesome. I collect tuxedos. I have about 13 in my collection now. I recently wore a tuxedo dress from the 1940's to a friend's wedding. It was divine. I'm currently looking for one that is made of leather. I know it's out there, everything has been done! ^_^
