Couture + Denim

As most of you know I won a $5,000 gift card to Vaughan Mills mall, located just north of Toronto! This mall has become one of my favorites, with even a Holt Renfrew Last Call, which carries designer labels at a highly discounted price! One of my precious ‘gems’ I found was this couture Marc Jacobs beaded blazer.  It reminds me so much of a Chanel jacket! The bead work is impeccable, the lining is stunning, this jacket is just to die for!  I also purchased these dark denim wide leg jeans! I found they were a perfect length, and fit!
