zip it good

So, you have probably guessed by now that I love zippers. It isn't so much the zipper that I love, it is using it unconventionally. On this jacket it is the closure (conventional) and the details (unconventional). I love that it adds an edge to this blazer that otherwise would be non-existant. It is just enough edge to take that sassy cocktail dress to the next level. Don't be afraid to pair it with ruffles and color. Maybe a yellow ruffle-front blouse and a pair of light denim skinny jeans and your favorite heels. Maybe a pink slinky dress with a sequin enriched bustier and a pair of metallic peep toe pumps. Bam! Instant strong, sexy woman. Love it!
