Living Royal started out as a gift shop that sold fun and quirky gifts, but they decided to venture into the world of fashion as well. Their site entails luscious fabrics, high-profile lookbooks, and eye-catching designs that easily caters to women of different walks of life - age, shape, and size. They guarantee that no one's look will be edgy and awesome as yours!

Queen Victoria unknowingly made fashion history in 1837 when she notified the commander of the ship HMS Blazer that she was wanting to inspect his ship. The commander wanted to impress the Queen of England, so he decided to change his crew's dress code by designing a double-breasted, short jacket that was adorned with brass buttons with the naval insignia, and thus, the blazer was born.

Originally marketed as menswear, there are many types of blazers out there that can be worn by men and women. No longer viewed as a look for professionals, you can wear a blazer to the office and beyond. Thanks to its endless versatility, you can easily pull off a casually chic or effortlessly elegant look with a multitude of outfits, whether you're pairing it with a dress, jeans, skirts, or shorts.

The We Mean Business 3/4 Blazer ($35) defies traditional blazers, because it is cute, yet sophisticated, lightweight, fun, and edgy! The 3/4 sleeves (a closer look in the picture below) makes this blazer look ultra flattering on the figure since it is slimming and more feminine.

While I often admire the look of blazers of today, I'll admit that I didn't think I'd be able the pull the look off since I had never worn a blazer before, but it quickly became my favorite after I first paired it with my Crash & Burn Cherokee Dress and Jessica Simpson Nichola peep toe pumps.

My love for Living Royal doesn't stop there, because their store is brimming with quirky, yet cute and stylish clothing, such as the Angel Sleeve Lace Dress ($35), Maya Ballet Dress ($65), Lace Me Up Bow Tights ($18), Leopard Print Bow Tie Blouse ($38), Got Your Back Green Dress ($60), and Rockstar Lace Flower Print Tights ($18).

I believe that Rafflecopter was experiencing issues with their service this morning, so that's probably why you were not able to see the widget for the contest. Everything appears to be in working order now, though. :-)
