Double-Take Tuesday: The Quintessential Spring/Summer Piece

Double-Take Tuesday
This is where I feature an item worn two ways. Then I offer up one same or similar item for you to claim. You never know what the featured item may be, what color or size. Heck, I don't even know! It all depends on what I find on my thrifting adventures. If you want it for yourself, email me at styleagent909@gmail.com. First come, first serve.

Update: The featured item on subsequent Double-Take Tuesdays will be available for a week. If more than one person is interested in the item, I'll let Random.org  decide who gets it. Thanks for your interest and keep checking back for more great items!

     Hey all, welcome back to another Double-take Tuesday. Today’s featured item is the quintessential summer piece. The item you’ll be wearing next year and for years to come. It’s a piece you can use to dress up your boyfriends; boyfriend jeans that is. You need this! Ok, so you peeked at the pics below. It’s a white blazer. The one I’m wearing is a crisp, linen number from Banana Republic (love their stuff!). Needless to say, there’s a million ways to wear this, these are just two ways I like to sport mine.  
     I sure hope you ladies like Ann Taylor, because that’s who made your white blazer. Yep, if there’s one thing I’ve learned about Virginians since moving here, it’s that they adore Ann Taylor. This little lovely came from the Goodwill, but guess what? It’s brand spankin’ new. The tags are still attached. It was originally $130.00. Outrageous! It’s a size 8. I sure wish that was my size because I’d be wearing it myself; never mind the fact that I already have like it. lol!  Once you receive it, I'd sure love a pic of how you styled it so I can update this post with it. Good Luck.
