Day 99: Fancy Sleeves

Gay men love this jacket. Particularly one man at the old Borders who told me that about four separate times in one visit. Apparently he has a matching "men's" version. I've contemplated clearing this one out of my wardrobe several times over the years, but how can I resist a sweatshirt that I can wear to work? Is there anything else that can be so comfortable and so professional at the same time?

Short sleeve button up: Bitten by SJP at Steve & Barry's (RIP)
Sweatshirt Blazer: Joyce Leslie
Pants: The Limited via TJ Maxx
Heels: Old Navy
Bag: Betsy's
Earrings: Gift from Dave's Mom
Necklace: Gift from Dave

  6. your sleeves are so stylish!!

  7. Wow, thank you, everyone! I will be rocking this blazer with a whole new confidence from now on!

  8. How cool! I think if a jacket gets compliments from gay men, that should mean a lot! I remember buying you this jacket at the Joyce Leslie in Glassboro for about $12, I think. Seems like a long time ago. Nice how the detailing has stayed on! I remember thinking how comfy, yet dressy, it was. Who knew at that time that it was destined to become semi-famous!
