Try Something New In Jackets

Of course all clergy need to have sports jackets, a suit (or appropriately professional separates) and we all have those perfectly fine blazers we sigh and wear to the Rotary Club thing where they ask us to “give a talk” and we’re never sure what they might like to hear us talk about, and it’s slightly awkward but you get a free lunch.

PeaceBang hates the “sigh” clothes — those garments that do the job but don’t express anything about her as a person and bring no sense of joy. It’s not like I expect my clothes to make me happy — that’s what recreational drugs are for — JUST KIDDING —
but there is a big difference in my sense of confidence when I’m wearing garments that do more than just cover my incarnate bulk.

Therefore, it is always a nice surprise to be able to find retailers who are offering a refreshing take on jackets, that old workhorse of the professional wardrobe. I happened to find all of these on Eloquii, which is for plus-sized ladies, but you can bet these options are also available for non-plus bods. I’m just too lazy to find any right now.

Not one boring, standard, ho=hum blazer.
Jackets with interesting shapes and cuts can make a beautiful statement. Shake it up.

  1. That belt front one is lovely, and I’m disappointed the tie-neck and cape blazers are already sold out on the website (a cape might be a bit extra for the Rotary club, but a gal can dream.)

    That cold shoulder blazer though . . . 😂

  2. My secret is out. I have several different silhouettes, all black. 1- traditional with black polka dots on white turn back cuffs that can be hidden, 2- mandarin collar with single waist button, 3-wide round lapels (portrait neck?) on jacquard, 5- velvet equestrienne and, 6- knit in the classic cut. Thanks for the reminder to rotate them a bit more.
