I am a serial eBayer. I take great joy in stalking pieces that can be bought
for a fraction of their retail price, particularly those which have long since
disappeared from sale elsewhere. This silk blazer is one such piece. It was
not love at first sight upon its receipt in the post: it was about a full four sizes
larger than I had been expecting it to be. Like, really big. Colossal, even.
But since having thrown it over various leg-baring ensembles, this silky
oversized being has earned its place as the throw-over-anything-short-or-tight-
to-make-it-more-socially-acceptable piece in my wardrobe. Which is a thing,
by the way. This only confirmed what I have always believed: that
committing to buy something based on one grainy iPhone picture - and
apparently not bothering to get measurements - does sometimes pay off.
In a big way.
