Hope you're having a great Monday! I could not believe when the hacking jacket went to $99.99 last week on J.Crew's website with an additional 30% off! I am still seriously considering buying the coral one as well, although I SO don't need a coral blazer. The deal is just too awesome to pass up. Now I know there were complaints that the quality of this year's hacking jacket is not as good as last year's. I do own last year's in bright turquoise, and I guess I do see a difference in perhaps the thickness and texture of the wool. But I still maintain that this year's version is gorgeous, and you're not going to find a better blazer at any mass retailer that is higher quality than this one. The color, while not as saturated as I normally go for, is lovely and soft. I see J.Crew is still offering the extra 30% as of today, so if you're in the market for a new blazer, definitely consider this one. What a great price right now!
I had to run to Anthropologie yesterday to exchange a sweater, and of course I popped into J.Crew since it's not too far down the mall. I found this lovely plaid scarf in the clearance section, marked from $68.00 to $34.99 with an additional 30% off. The colors in it are so pretty and match many of my coats and blazers. It's a huge scarf, and it definitely kept me cozy today. I don't see it online, but if you run across one in-store, check it out. I know many of us share madness for plaid, and this scarf adds great visual interest to a winter coat or blazer!
Who else has scored a hacking jacket this year? Thanks for visiting.
