My friends, sometimes fashion dreams come true. When I first reviewed this blazer of pink awesomeness, here, I never thought I would be lucky enough to own it. The price, $350, is way out of my price range for a blazer. Plus, my local J.Crew didn't have my size, a 6, and it sold out online in size 6 very quickly. It popped back now and then, and even got marked to $249.99, but that was still too much for me to pay. Imagine my delight when I was stalking my local J.Crew (a bi-weekly occurance), and I found one shawl blazer, on the sale rack, size 6, marked to $199.99 plus the addional 25% off. I literally gasped out loud. I even had several returns to make, so really this blazer was all mine for only an addional $39 to what I was already returning. Happy day! I kept the rest of my outfit simple (and conservative) because I wanted to let it shine today, but I will definitely mix it up next time.
I know I will love this blazer for years to come. Some things are just meant to be. Thanks for stopping by!
