Happy Birthday to Me and My Black Blazer Collection

I can’t believe it has been another year, unbelievable how time flies. I celebrated my 23rd birthday yesterday at Bimbo Deluxe, a great place to hangout, it was the best birthday I had in a while.

The Balmain Spring Summer 2012 Satin Tuxedo Crop Blazer

:] :0 :O XD :3 <3 <3 <3

Balmain Black Satin Lapel Cropped Wool Jacket

I love this blazer so much, I always wanted this blazer since the day I tried it during our Japan trip. Thank you so much, I am so happy :* <3

I have been buying a few blazer recently, I think it’s my new style since I love wearing high top sneakers and Balmain ranger boots with a black sharp blazer, preferably cropped. The look just goes so well and it is now my official casual wear. Most of the black blazers that I bought are from Zara because they are cheap, but what I dislike most about the brand is the weird fit. Zara Men’s clothes are always attractive when it comes to price, but when I wear them, the fit is just not right most of the time. The body size is often cut to be wider than the average designer standard sizes and the sleeves are shorter than usual. Sometimes the sizes are inconsistent, a size 48 could fit like a size 50. It is often difficult for me to pull off Zara clothes without sending them to be heavily altered, and alteration service is very costly in Melbourne. Here are a few of my recent purchases, they are quite worthy since I wear them almost everyday.

I did a DIY transparent sneaker sole protection on my new Balmain sneakers. It wasn’t easy to put them on because the original sole had two level of rubber layers which is quite a challenge. But anyhow I still managed to cut it to fit.

    Hi

    Can I ask if these jeans fit true to size? I heard the run quite small.

    Thanks

    • True to size, but super skinny cutting. Not for muscular or fat legs.

    Hi I was wondering if the balmain 12ss cropped blazer fits a size larger than the usually balmain blazers? I wear 48 for 13ss cropped blazer and 12ss smoking onebutton blazer. 48 essentially for balmain and saint laurent fits me well and 46 for other brands. Would a 48 for this cropped blazer be too large for me?

    • Yes, its fit large to size. I'm wearing a size 46, while other Balmain jackets at size 50 because they fit smaller. I'm a size 48.
