I pined and pined for this Dries Van Noten beaded blazer, from the Fall 2013 line and waited patiently for it to go on sale. I took a gamble, but I had a feeling that not everyone would want to own this blazer because the beading is a little misleading. What I mean by that, is that one often tends to wear a jacket with beading in a dressier way. That coupled with its designer price, makes it a bit unpractical for us practical gals! As I tend to march to the beat of my own drummer, I felt that one way to wear this jacket is to pair it casually with jeans. I added my favorite accessory, the hat, to give it another cool look.
