Bloomie's HaulSeptember 18, 2010
I have been eying this Theory Darlin double-breasted denim jacket (I love everything double breasted) for a few weeks now and finally decided to take the plunge even though it wasn't marked down significantly. After the tweed Theory skirt suit fiasco (I tried hunting down the Theory Lecture Gratian blazer that PAG, AN, and Really Petite bought and the search was a total flop, I don't think I've ever wanted a blazer this badly) I decided if I liked something that is work-appropriate I would allow myself to get it even if it's not that well discounted.
Still available in 00 at the 59th/Lexington location. I got the matching bottom in 00 as well only because I figured it was better to get the matching bottom than to be without one period. I would've preferred a skirt but sadly that wasn't available.
The blazer was originally $375, on sale for $281.25, there was an extra 25% off discount so I got the blazer for $210.94 before taxes. The pants were originally $225, on sale for $180, was $135 after the extra 25% off.
The 00 is not available online but several online retailers carry other sizes. Saks is selling it for full price but it is available in 0 here.
If you want to get this jacket, you should just call up any Bloomie's and they'll be more than happy to do a charge & send. It looks like B&M Bloomie's has the best price and sizing selection at the moment.
I really like Aqua things - I tried on about five blazers and several bottoms today but only purchased one since none were discounted. I'll be tracking them online to see if they get discounted but I didn't want this one to sell out at size 0. Really very cute in person, and only $108.
It's currently available online as well in all sizes.
I can't find this exact blazer on Bloomie's website but here's a really close relative in black.
