Channeling My Inner Max

blazer: Sonia by Sonia Rykiel crest embroidered blazer $680
shirt: Dolce & Gabbana fitted cotton shirt $100
skirt: Burberry London
shoes: Shellys London crest skimmer flat $29.99
hat: Forever 21 red beret
tie: Textured multi-stripe tie $59.50

In a previous post I discussed the wonder and amazement that is Rushmore. It is one movie that inspires me over and over again. Currently I am on the hunt for a crested blazer so I can channel my inner Max Fischer. I have yet to find one, but using the addictive Polyvore, I created an ensemble perfectly suitable for Rushmore Academy. (click to enlarge)

I love the look, especially the blazer. I've got a thing for blazers with crest on them.

P.S. Thank you so much for your amazing comments.

ok TOTALLY ordering the cheapie crested flats! LOVE
never seen rushmore.
about the big photos on photobucket-
create a photobucket account, upload your photos. then, in "my album" there will be an html tag under each photo. Copy it for each picture you want to add, and just post that in the "new post" editing tool, instead of using the blogger upload tool. They will show as html codes until you click publish, then you'll see them on the blog.

HOpe that helps! I was amazed how simple it was, and now I can actually showcase what I'm wearing!
