Celeb Style Steal | Jessica Alba


Following my visit to Bon Marche Nottingham, I was kindly gifted an item of my choice from anything in store.  Both Nicola and I feel in love with this tailored jacket* from the David Emmanuel range and decided that this baby needed to come home with us!


I was browsing through Instagram one evening and saw that someone had put this image of Jessica Alba up as a 'style love' post,  I was instantly drawn to how effortless yet put together this look was and immediately ditched my original plans of pairing this jacket with a dress.  I sent the look to Nicola and she felt the same! So we decided to do a joint post and steal Jessica's style with our jackets!





I love this jacket so much, it's beautifully tailored to hug your waist and the texture is very regal.  Throughout my childhood my nan has always had wallpaper similar to this texture so it added a little bit of sentimental love to it!  The jacket is true to size and a fabulous fit, but if you're a more busty gal who likes to do up her jackets then I would say size up to get the coverage.
The ends of the jacket have slits to enable rolling up, which I know Nicola has done, but having long arms myself I preferred it without.  The slits however do give that element of comfort so you don't feel as boxed in as you would in a blazer normally.
I paired it with my favourite pair of Simply Be black Chloe jeans* and my chiffon Live Unlimited top, finishing with statement jewellery and some nude heels.



I felt very Kris Jenner in this outfit and had a little diva moment when my other half refused to hand me a glass of prosseco. I love the monochrome look but have never reversed it so the white is the focus of the outfit, having always believed lighter colours made me look 'bigger' in my youth I can honestly say that doesn't seem the case here.  The outfit slimmed me down completely and the tailored look only enhanced my lady curves!
Do make sure you check out Nicola's post - she looks banging! And, of course, head over the to the Bon Marche website to grab this jacket! Trust me, you won't regret it!
