Wool Jacket & Shoulder Pads

10.16.2010

This jacket is from my grandma! I love this bold orange color. There's a nice tweed-ish sheen to it (if that made any sense!). and...it's got shoulder pads! I'm not a huge fan of jackets and clothes with shoulder pads since I'm naturally broad shouldered (Jennifer can wear them though since she's way smaller than me). I was wondering what everyone else's thoughts were on shoulder pads.

Do you like wearing jackets/tops with shoulder pads?
Do you think shoulder pads make an outfit look better/worse?

Have a wonderful next few days! I'll be working on putting more stuff on my blog shop and Ebay. I'm slightly addicted to Ebay. Oh, and I'm thinking about starting a YouTube channel for this blog since it's sometimes a lot easier for me to sit in front of a camera talking about fashion than writing and boring everyone. and I'll be able to hold up cool stuff to show you! haha. ok, I'm boring myself.

possible next post topic: Beginners guide on how to get into the mainstream magazine industry! How you can work for Glamour, Nylon, Marie Claire, Elle, Vogue etc. etc. (let me know if this interests you or if it's totally boring and you don't wanna hear about it!)

  1. Super cute!! I think its a great outfit and the jacket is really cool and looks nice, and the animal print peeking out is just perfect! :)

  2. I've also got broad shoulders (people ask if I was a swimmer.... and I was, but I guess that's how obviously broad my shoulders are). So I also tend to stay away from shoulder pads. I think some are better than others, but I take them out if I find them in clothes I want. I think this jacket looks great on you though. So I wouldn't worry about them.

    Love the way you layered colors and patterns and jewelry. It gives you an awesome glam-rocker vibe.

  4. i like broad shoulders for jackets because they can give you an illusion of a smaller waist :)

    the last idea you have in there is great. can't wait :)

  9. wow.. I love the layer interaction between your jacket and grandma shirt. Such a sweet combination!(:

    I don't like to wear shoulder pads. I remind me to my mom's old blazer and I feel the old time..): But my mom's pads are huge pads, so I don't like it. maybe a small or normal pads will make your shoulder even better (:

  18. That jacket looks wonderful! I personally don't like wearing shoulder pads, but that's just because they don't fit my body too well. I love them on others, especially in these photos! :)

  21. Hey thanks for dropping by my blog <3
    I think that if the jacket's cutting is fitting and well made I dont mind shoulder pads because I think it actually makes the whole jacket sit better!!
    and also the jacket looks gorgeous on you!!!!
    <3 keep up the good work! your blog is so unique
