Celeb spotting: Miss Kardashian

Spotted: Kim Kardashian in a ZARA studded black blazer that is Balmain inspired.

I am personally not a fan of Kim Kardashian but there has been some raves over her ZARA blazer in the fashion blogger sphere. I recently spotted the blazer in ZARA and pondered about getting it. There were only 4 pieces left in the store and not wanting to miss out, I went back the next day to pick one up in my size. I could always return it within 30 days should I decide not to keep it.

Now here’s my dilemma: Do I keep it or do I return it? I would personally define my style as classic with a touch of chic. I generally tend to shy away from trends as I prefer having garments that are timeless and classic. We know studs are a trend and one that keeps coming back, too. Yet, there is something about this studded blazer that is minimalist to me which tugs at my heart. The studs are not overtly done, kept minimal strictly to the lapel and they are a muted metallic silver that gleams so subtly under different lighting. Furthermore, the studs are not gargantuan which screams for attention. Yet, I just can’t seem to make up my mind. So, do I keep it and make it part of my wardrobe or do I return it? Hmm..

Opinions, thoughts and feedback are welcomed!


*UPDATE*

Here’s a pic of me with the blazer…

At this point, I am pretty much leaning towards returning the blazer but just thought I’d post a few pics of me wearing it.

    I'm not sure about this one babe. I prefer blazers that are snug or cropped. This one looks oversized – too 80s. But then again, oversized jackets always look good on tall, lanky bodies like yours.I say, take a look at what you already have. Can you match the jacket with a lot of what you already have?

    Cost per wear my love!! I don't foresee a problem with the oversizedness of this one on you since you're tall, and I personally like white blazers, but as Trish has pointed out, can you match it with alot you already have?
