Music Mondays: Jacqueline Dunford

American Idol's: Jacqueline Dunford

  Last week I was in Arizona visiting my cousins.  My cousin Stevie's roomate made this music video of his girlfriend who is currently on American Idol.  Not only is her voice insanely amazing but her fashion sense is on point as well!  This video took about 6 takes and they only used one microphone!

With some many ways to pair and wear this fashion staple, its imperative that you spend a good amount of time searching for the best quality garment that will last you years.

The velour jacket is trimmed in satin for a tuxedo style and fits as if a Tailor took your personal measurements!  The sleeves roll up for the trendy boyfriend look. 

The fantastic benefit of this jacket is that you can casually pair it with jeans and button down but also use it as a dressy jacket with the most dressiest of dresses, pant or jump suits for any black tie occasion.

Another sexy option is nothing underneath with a pair of black or
