My Coral Reef Blazer

The first time I put this blazer on in the fitting room, I was racking my brain for a life form that closely resembles the ruffle blooms on both sides of the sleeves. And then it hit me: coral reefs
The ruffles look like coral reefs, guys.
But then, on second thought, they also seem more like the lace-y folding decorative fans I used to play around with when I was a little girl, that I either found in local touristy stores or in an aunty or a grandma's handbag...I mean, they really do look like those fancy fans, amirite?
However way you see the ruffles situation here, only one thing you should know: I am totally feeling the weird detailing that snake upwards from above my wrist, making a U-turn somewhere along the way and winding back down towards the end of the sleeves.

See the post in which my Coral Reef Blazer first made an appearance: When Ruffles Take Over Your Sleeves (and hopefully we will see me wearing this blazer as I envisioned it in the near future!).

  1. This little ruffled jacket has permission to play when worm with jeans and I love seeing you discover new combinations. Your coral reef comparison is hard for me to see but I trust it will bring even more creative possibilities to mind in future stylings. Perhaps a coral print blouse or skirt?

    1. Oooh I would love to stumble upon a coral print item, that would be fantastic, to match with the blazer.

      I understand why the comparison can be confusing. There are so many types of coral reefs out there and I don't know any of their names. I've seen photos of swirly, leafy coral, which came to mind when I saw these ruffles, I wish I knew what they're called!

  2. Always so chic, girl. Heheh, I'm feelin your coral reef jacket as well. Can't wait to see how you will style it in the future. Missed coming here to get inspired. I'm here finally. I think this is the most unique blazer I've ever seen, coming from someone who doesn't like blazers LOL. You always make blazers fun and approachable. I don't know how you do it. Please reveal your secrets :p

    1. Hahahaha, no secrets! I'm just a girl who likes blazers a little too much, and got lucky with this coral reef one!
      I totally get that you don't like blazers though, our country doesn't actually require it a lot, does it? Also, I think you spend way more time outdoors than I do (even though I should go outdoors more often), and blazers definitely do not belong outdoors in Malaysia!
