Luxe Tux

Oh I wish I had more places to wear a white tuxedo jacket...it's not only from one of my absolute favorite designers, Trina Turk, I found it for 80% off (!!!) at one of my favorite places, Nordstrom Rack. Such a classic shape, I know I'll be wearing this for years! 
I paired it with a seemingly simply black tee, nude heels, and some recent DIY denim. Remember these jeans? Well, I decided they were too short, so I cut them off and gave them a little shredding treatment. I may be a little obsessed with distressed jeans. However, I think they'll see much more wear now!
What I'm Wearing //
Tuxedo Blazer // Trina Turk (similar options)
Top // CAbi Flip-it Tee 
Formerly Bootcut Denim // CAbi
 Nude Pumps // Franco Sarto
 Leather Tote // Furla
 Necklace // Stella and Dot
Sunnies //Kate Spade
Remember when I said my tee was "seemingly simple"? It's got a cool racer back cutout draped detail in the back, while the front is a basic scoop! How fun is that?
If you find really special items for super duper discount, buy them! I knew that jacket was mine the second I saw it even though I have few occasions to wear it. My second tip :: wear them! Just buying something awesome because it was practically free isn't enough. Let it see outside your closet! It's like wedding china. It's not going anywhere without you people, so use it!
