It all started with a hot-pink briefcase...  Smiley

I spotted it at a yard sale and now it's my official debate (yes, I'm a geek Tongue) bag, prompting it's official nickname as the legally blonde bag. As the movie and its sequel are simply awesome, I decided that I simply had to have a blazer to match!;D

The style is mainly based on the second movie, where Elle goes to Washington. I tried to find a good pic of one of the cute suits she wears, and this is the best I could do:


And my version!
Action shot:


On the mannequin (sp?):



The fabric is a lovely hot pink and lime green houndstooth; the colors are the most accurate in the first photo. It's fully lined and reeeally comfortable.

I'm seriously considering a matching skirt.  Smiley

Well anyway, that's my entry. Can't wait to see everyone else's!

Aww, thank you everyone for the nice comments!  Smiley

I slightly modified a New Look pattern (I can't find the number right now) to turn it into a blazer. The straight jacket look-- not so flattering  Tongue

This was one of my best remnant snags yet! Pink, green, stretch, and houndstooth for six dollars at G street fabrics (a local chain)

That looks great! (And although it's not part of the challenge per se, I'd love to see how it looks with the hot pink briefcase!)

Aww, thanks all for the nice comments! Cheesy

The shirt does go perfectly, which is hilarious considering I bought it without thinking about that at all... I guess I'm always subconsciously drawn to the same shade of pink...   Kiss

After spending about an hour trying to wrestle pics off of my evil, evil camera, I gave in, so I'm afraid I don't have any pics with the hot pink briefcase. You can however see it in the background in the action shot.  Smiley
