Basics

Blazer Helmut Lang (similar styles here and here), T shirt Gap, Jeans c/o Karen Kane, Purse Coach, Heels Givenchy, Bracelets c/o Stella & Dot (here and here), Sunnies Ray Ban

After seeing this blazer on Alicia, I was determined to find it. Luckily, it was still on the 
Helmut Lang website and with some of my graduation money, I was able to get it!
It was definitely a big splurge, but it is a staple piece that I will have in my closet forever.
It will definitely come in handy when Thomas and I move to San Francisco in a 
couple weeks, since it's pretty chilly year round.
