Proper Bling for Ratty Jeans

Hi all!
Here is my version of the Over 40 Boyfriend Jean. Just as baggy, just as ragged - but with a proper blazer, lots of rhinestones and prom pumps for that "what the?" stare that reigns over the western side of Cincy. In the world of blogging, this look is old hat. An almost non-post worthy look. In the midwestern burbs, however, I am right on point...
I thrifted this jacket last year, but never wore it. It was planned for belting, short suits and jeans. Wearing it with a plain black tank and jeans is my "No sweats - No way" casual drag. The pumps? Well, they're just pretty ;) The earrings are in honor of my love of art deco... Lastly, the hat - to break up all that foo-foo ;)
Jacket,Jeans,Pumps: thrifted // Hat:retail // Tee:Hanes // Sunnies:Vintage  // Earrings/Brooch:Gabriel Bros.$3.99
*OOh, SHINY!*

You look beautiful! I love this look! I love rhinestones and ragged denim- those are two of my favorite textures.

there's a local event here called Jeans and Bling. I'm not sure what goes there (I think it's a charity ball) but I bet you'd be the belle of the ball there!

OMG- crazy love! Not sure why I love this outfit- perhaps its because you are an amazing stylist. I LOVE THAT COLOR OF PINK on the blazer, on you. Ok, this from a girl who "hates" pink? What's wrong with me. And the jeans- I'm not a jeans girl- but you look smoking hot- so real life wearable too. The shoes- well, they go with everything, and certainly ANYTHING you decide to pair with them. They are Great Gatsby, they are speakeasy sexy, and they are YOU.
