A few weeks ago or so, I wrote about a post about basic blazers with touches of embelleshment, a little bit of unexpected. The jewels, bead, and chainlinks added some visual interest to these pieces and some conversation-starting elements. When I saw this new blazer from the Elizabeth and James Spring 2011 line, I felt excited (and inspired). Why not add little leather embellishments to other basic pieces? The combination of this crisp white blazer and the horizontal leather stripes is striking! The Olson twins sure know how to design. I wish this was making it's way into my closet.
