Outfitting: Shoulder pads

I haven't worn this blazer outside in almost ten years, and I'm pretty sure the last time I wore it was for an internship interview for Los Angeles Magazine. The guy who interviewed me, some cocky editor, was kind of a butt-face and sauntered out in jeans and generally made me feel really lame for wearing a skirt suit. I mean it was lame of me to wear a skirt suit, but he could have been a little nicer about it.

I'm surprised the blazer looks decent when worn open like this; not nearly as stuffy as when I button it up. The rhinestone necklace I also haven't worn in forever, though I spent a laborious eight hours searching for it on eBay. I guess when I want something specific, I stop at nothing to find it.
