I Fell in Love, But it Was Not to Be…

Posted in miscellaneous by bluewellesleyblue on September 17, 2008

I saw a gorgeously cut black Classiques Entier blazer at Nordstrom Rack while picking up some things for London. It would have gone perfectly with a pair of black slacks sourced from elswehere as an interview suit – I haven’t had luck with suits sold as sets because I wear a smaller pant size than my usual blazer size – except that it was two sizes too big. It wasn’t a particularly obvious two sizes. My usual go-to blazer from Ann Taylor, which is actually the right size, looks as if it fits about as well. Still, it was not to be.

Oh who am I kidding. I totally wish I had bought that blazer now, after realizing my actual suit did not fit me that much better. Now that I know I do not have aspirations for working in fashion or anywhere where unconventional office wear is encouraged, I’m willing to splurge on the perfect suit. I think I’ll run to Nordstrom when I get home and do just that.

    I hate regretting and wishing I had bought something.

    I bought this Elie Tahari suit for a presentation freshman year. It looks awesome, but I actually only wear it once in a while. I stick to my other suits more as they are more comfy.

    Tahari suits are super nice! I have only one blazer that I like, but I match it either with different black skirts and slacks.

    Suits definitely aren’t very comfy at all, unfortunately. At the end of the day I always want out of them as soon as possible!
