So I’m sure you must have noticed that checks are big this season. And you may have also seen just how pricey some of these pieces are in store!
I spotted a check blazer that I liked at a major retailer recently, and I somehow remembered my Mother wearing a similar style MANY years ago. The blazer was ridiculously priced in store, by the way!
So on my next visit to my Moms, I asked her if she still had it and whether she could pass it my way.
So it was my lucky day – after a little bit of persuasion that she would never really wear it again – she passed it my way.
And I’m so glad she did.
Apposed to the black and white check print that is literally in every shop window at the moment, the blue and tan check print is a refreshing alternative for Autumn.
Alyssa has already asked me to keep it aside for her when she’s older, which means that she clearly approves of this look!
I think I need to pay my Mom’s wardrobe another visit soon. You never know what I might find.
Have you received any “vintage” fashion piece from a family member? I’d love to hear.
