Business suites have never been my forte, but I do love a nice blazer. You can combine them in so many different ways without looking like you're about to go in to a meeting. My closet contains a couple of black blazers. They come in all shapes and different fabrics. Some I've even worn during live shows in the past.
This past summer Zara came out with a range of really colorful blazers made out of cotton. They are unbelievable comfortable. Sometimes blazers can limit your flexibility. I was searching for a nice yellow blazer since so long, but didn't find the right fit and the right color yellow. I tried the yellow blazer from the Zara collection, but this one was a bit too neon for me.
There was another color that caught my eye. It was their really bright red blazer. That was the one that went home with me. It was a nice memory from my day off in Budapest with Rob during the Epica tour. A big thanks to Rob for being patient enough to go shopping with me. I liked it so much that I decided to take it with me to our Latin American tour in September. Unfortunately, that's where it stayed. I hung it in the closet of the hotel in Buenos Aires. We had a super early lobby call (4 am) the next morning and I forgot to take it out of the closet. When I hung it in the closet to de wrinkle, I knew that I was going to forget about it.

- Pants and blazer from Zara
As soon as I landed in Chile, I found out that I forgot it and called the hotel in Buenos Aires to see if it was still there. They told me to call back the next morning to check with the cleaning lady. So I did, but no blazer unfortunately. That means that someone stole it and that really breaks my heart. This blazer had sentimental value and was still so new. How can people just take the belongings of someone else without having a guilty conscious? I couldn't.
After surfing a while on the internet, I found the blazer again on zara.com, but in medium. I ordered it anyway even though my first one was an S. I even saw the blazer at a Zara in Uruguay when we were still on tour, but the exchange rate was not to my advantage and I'd already ordered it on Zara.com. I am glad to be reunited with the blazer and will never hang it in the hotel clothing closet because I know that I will forget about it.
Have you ever lost a piece of clothing that had great value to you?
