Wear It Five Ways : Ann Taylor LOFT Striped Merino Wool BlazerNovember 07, 2010
I had been waiting for a better sale on this blazer since I first lay eyes on it a couple of weeks ago, since then I have been scouting out various LOFT sales, the best of which was 30% off full price items. I finally decided to pull the trigger on Friday evening when I learned that LOFT is offering a tier discount ($30 off $100, $50 off $150) and a $25 savings card for every $50 of full price merchandise item purchased.
I ended up getting a belt on clearance for $4.88 and the blazer for $98 before the discounts were applied. The XXS was not available in stores so I settled for the XS. I don't know if I should keep it as styling it made me realize that it's hard for me to get creative with a blazer. That said, I also think the XXS would be a better fit as the XS is quite loose in the torso and in the sleeves.
Look 2: Victoria Secret Squareneck Babydoll Bra Top Dress in XXS (reviewed here), Dolce Vita Madison pumps in 7
Look 3: A&F Lace Legging in XS, J. Crew Double-Serge Pencil Skirt in 00, Rampage Heels in 7
Look 4: Ann Taylor LOFT Ruffle Front Cardigan in XXSP, J. Crew Cotton Pimm Skirt in 00 (Crewlade reviewed this skirt)
Look 5: J. Crew Alice Ruffle Tank Top in 0p (on Heidi here), Jack BB Dakota Jegging in 0 (I got this from PLNDR, the waist is way too big but I won't complain since it was on sale for <$15)
It's a cute enough blazer but at the moment I am having trouble justifying this purchase. Keep or Return?
And for those of you who asked about the H&M blazer that I wore in this post, here is a better representation of the color of the blazer. The yellowish hue of my closet light kind of colored the jacket pinkish...I would say it's a pretty light textured brown.
