Plaid on Plaid

Today was my first day back to school.  I'm really excited for this semester because I get to work with knit fabrics.  I've always been intimidated working with knits, because they can be quite finicky, so I'm hoping that this course will allow me to hone in those skills needed to sew knit fabrics with more confidence.  I can't wait!

This plaid blazer is probably one of my fave thrift finds.  I love the shorter length and the shoulder pads.  Yeah, I dig a strong shoulder. :)  I've been on the hunt for some sequin pants and I happened to stumble across these the other week, while on the way to the ladies room in Macy's.  haha!  I like that they're jeans and that only the front half is covered in sequins.  Pretty unique if you ask me, and I don't have to worry about snagging any sequins when I sit down.  The price point was a steal, too.  What new sartorial pieces have entered your closet lately?
