It’s been a month since the last time I did a post that featured a blazer, for me that may as well be an eternity. Now, if you follow me on Twitter you know about the blazer I am wearing. For those who aren’t following me on Twitter…why not? I thought you liked me? Oh you don’t have a twitter account? No worries then. For the rest of you really?
Back to my post. I saw this blazer on Cityline and I fell in LOVE (plus I swear Tracy Moore was talking to me and telling me that this blazer was made for me, this happens to me every once in a while during Cityline). A sequin blazer in black…are you kidding me? Where have you been all my life. No, I seriously thought that. I got in my minivan the next day to chase down this blazer…I didn’t have to go far because this blazer is from SEARS. Yes Sears. Not only was it from Sears it was $45 because they were having a promotion on Jessica Brand clothing – 50% off! SOLD! Right now the blazer is $54.
Now some will turn up their noses at Sears, I ask why? Shop at Joe Fresh, F21, Old Navy or H&M? I’m sure the quality of this blazer is just as good (I’m guessing a lot better than F21) as any of the retailers I’ve just mentioned. Plus if I never told you where I bought it you might think BCBG (that’s what most people guessed, because I made them). I love the way it sparkles.
Love the button placement, the “girls” are locked and loaded. The waist is defined and nicely cinched. When choosing a blazer cut is the most important aspect. If it does not fit you properly DON’T buy the blazer. This cut was perfect for me, shoulders fit, I could move my arms and the length worked.
When I wore this outfit to the Jelena Rozga concert (Croatian singer) I changed out the black shoes and went with my leopard print heels and added a statement necklace. Next time I’m adding pearls, I love pearls and sequin (Lynn Spence and I agree on that). Cannot wait to wear this blazer to Christmas parties and any other holiday festivity.
