Whenever I find something in my closet that I'm not sure should stay or go, I pair it with an Anthropologie item and see if it can be saved. Last year I started taking a lot of clothing to the tailor only to wonder later if some of the jackets should have just been donated instead. Some things looked as if not much had been done. This particular blazer was not part of the group but I do think it needs tweaking. But if it's not going to look that much different, I really don't want to be bothered.
I was inspired to put on my riding boots and a longer length blazer after seeing the Discovery channels mini series Klondike. The Gold Rush era has fascinated me ever since I first learned about it in the fourth grade, so it was fun to see a movie that was based on actual people from that time. I was particularly interested in the savy business woman, Belinda Mulrooney played by Abbie Cornish. Her costumes reflected a tough edge for dealing with the men, but were paired with feminine colors, like the teal shown in the picture.
