Tailored || Day 7 of Restyle 2014

The word "tailored" conjures up images of business suits and feeling uncomfortably "suited and booted".  Being a stay at home mum means that these kind of clothes don't feature highly in my wardrobe.  I am, however, quite partial to a great blazer and well fitting trousers, so I guess both of these items can be classed as tailored.

The amazing striped jacket featured in this post was such a great find.  It is from English megastore Selfridges and the label makes me think it's a good couple of decades old.  I'm imagining it may've been part of an 80's power suit and was once teamed with a pencil skirt.  Obviously not wanting to channel Dynasty, I paired it with jeans and heels for an off duty look.

How did you get on with today's prompt, tailored?


  1. That jacket is so cool! I want it! I love a good black and white stripe, it's such a versatile pattern and you've dressed it down so perfectly, well done xx

  2. Rock and roll Mumma! :) Wear it again for monochrome! Love. xx Jenelle

  3. Who says mums can't wear killer, studded heels and 'biker' t-shirts? You look so young in that outfit, Vicki! And yes, I second Jenelle...Rock on, mama! (I am having images of Katey Sagal as the sexy matriarch on Sons of Anarchy.) Too cool for school!

  4. I can't get enough of this jacket Vicki!! Seriously. I need it! X


I love getting comments!
