Although I have counseled a certain amount of caution in acquiring embellished garments, some simply cannot be resisted. Like this jacket:
With jeans and flats it’s perfect for a very casual Friday. This jacket would also look good with white jeans (I think, I think) or ivory corduroys (soon to be the subject of a rapturous post).
For those of you who sew, you could trick out a plain safari or fatigue jacket with fancy trims like these. Just do a quick search for “Indian sari trims” and you will find wondrous supplies.
Here is a better look at the details.
This jacket came in navy, too — if you are looking for further inspiration.
Jacket: Sachin+Babi; Blouse: Talbots; Jeans: JCrew: Shoes: French Sole New York; Bag: Coach

That’s embellishment I can get behind! Still washable, and probably looks even better with age. I like the draw string at the waist – taking away any boxy potential. Happy Friday!
Love both jackets and that is clearly a project which done with planning is a great upcycling effort if you relax with sewing. Fun new idea! Thanks. Kate
I eagerly await the ivory corduroys post! I have been seeking a pair of these for some time.
Love your films!
