I decided to pick an Item of the Week every Monday. Having something pretty in mind for the weekend makes the workweek go by faster.

Black blazer should be a staple to every woman’s wardrobe (come to think of, I don’t have one) but they can also fall into a ‘boring’ category. The boyfriend blazer is extremely popular at the moment but I prefer a more feminine silhouette. This sleek and smart blazer adds girly chic with the addition of soft black feathers. I can imagine them bouncing around with the swaying of the hips.

Elizabeth and James, founded by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has been getting a lot of hype since its start in 2007. Designer Ashley Olsen’s inspiration comes from many of unique vintage finds and pieces in her personal wardrobe. Elizabeth and James announced their menswear line which will be available in Fall 2009.

Elizabeth and James is available at Holt Renfrew across Canada and Blubird in Vancouver.
