OOTD :: of lucky purchases and hybrid style




So I don’t know about you, but a suit just screams “fancy” to me. And yet Chucks are the ultimate in comfort and TGIF wear. I suppose, then, that today’s outfit is a Fancy Friday/TGIF hybrid.

The suit was a lovely surprise. Purchased initially on eBay for the blazer alone, I was getting ready to chuck the pants because, let’s face it – buying pants on eBay is always a crap shoot. I was crossing my fingers that they’d work, though, because the whole thing just fits the whole David Tennant vibe I’d been searching for since the resurgence of my Doctor Who obsession.

I wasn’t too concerned about the purchase, though, because this particular eBay seller offered returns if not satisfied. But wouldn’t you know, I actually caught a break this time. The blazer settled across my linebacker shoulders like it was tailored for me. And the pants? Buttoned successfully with nary a muffin in sight. Plus, the length was just right.

My only quibble is that the trousers didn’t come with pockets. I’m thinking perhaps I can have pockets sewn in since I’m already planning to have the hips taken in anyway (they’re hidden by the long blazer and shirt in the pics). Otherwise, I’m in love with this suit. And for a mere $40, I’m able to channel my inner 10th Doctor and swan about town in style while ever ready for action and loads and loads of running in my trusty Chucks.

I’d probably have to ditch the pearls, though.
