My Shiny New Toy: Chloe-Inspired Boyfriend Blazer

The obsession started a year ago.  With this image of an impossibly purty Kate Bosworth in Chloe.   After all I'm a sucker for shorts, neutrals and blazers. And don't EVEN get me started about scalloped edges.

Apparently I wasn't the only obsessive.  Chloe Sevigny went through a may-jor Chloe blazer and shorts phase for a few months too.  Though I think she just loves sniffing "Chloe" when asked who she's wearing.  I know I would.

A year later, that California cool chic of light colored blazers was back on the runway for Spring 2010.  At Chloe. AND Stella McCartney.

So for months I'd had my eye out for a reasonably priced one. Saw many delicious options but none under $200.  That is until I found one at a thirft store. Purfect drape, color and materia weightl.  AND just $20.SOLD!

Wore it out recently for a fashion blogger event. At the Bar Marmont with the ever delicious Fashion Intel and Inny Vinny. Natch! (hate when people say natch! but there it is!)

Paired it with American Apparel leggings, a bubble tank, Marc Jacobs clutch and Elizabeth and James pumps. Felt as young and sassy as my twenty something fellow party goers.  And infinitely more famous than that Rosario Dawson who happened to plop right down next to us at the event!!!  That's my "I think I'm famous too but I'm really just tipsy" mouth.  Ugh.

Interested in channeling Chloe wearing Chloe?  Here are some inspirations for pulling off light colored blazers this summer.  Sorry, drunk mouth NOT included ;)

I am soooo down with blazer love. Can I also say, I don't think I've ever looked goofier! Sheesh. Hope to see you soon.

LOVE the light blazer! I need to snap one up ASAP. Too hot for anything darker.

And your drunk mouth is cuuuute. =D

Glad you were able to find what you wanted at such a great price!! Nothing better than a bargain.
I was able to find a tan boyfriend blazer at F21 (it has the cutest lining).
Thanks for making this post because I can definitely pull some inspiration from it.

Chloe in Chloe was definitely a great ad for that brand.
