A completely normal, not at all strange problem

Sunday, December 12, 2010

I have a secret to tell you. There’s this guy in my Psych class (which is over now, for the record) and whenever I see him, learning just goes right out the window. Actually, all focusing whatsoever goes out the window. I confess, I am unconditionally and irrevocably in love with… his blazer.

Seriously. It’s ridiculously cute. Every time I see it, I’m just like, “damn. That is a cute blazer.”

(I know; I’m so very astute. And also, did you catch the awful Twilight reference back there? I did. It hurt my soul to make it but it was just too humorous to pass up.)

What I’m on the hunt for is a light grey wool (or tweed) blazer with one button; a little on the long side, with a full sleeve, a shawl lapel, and two single-welt pockets. I went ahead and put together a spread of the closest styles I could find, but… none of them are quite perfect. The first Theory blazer is close, but it needs to have full sleeves, the collar of the Just Cavalli or Stella, be in a soft wool blend rather than a nylon/elastene one, and — oh, right, be about a zillion dollars $200 cheaper.

Alas! What is a girl perfectionist to do?

  1. I bought a similar tweed blazer about 6 years ago at Jacob for $65. Best investment EVER. I love wearing it!!!

  2. ahaha! you almost had me there. i was prepared to write a "oooh, get it girl!" comment and everything :p

    why don't you try zara? i have a black, boyfriend blazer from there that i absolutely love. it's similar in shape to the theory blazer but the sleeves go up to the wrists. LOVE the lapels on the rag & bone blazer, though. i want it!

    Thanks for the idea! I'm going to be swamped with studying for the next few weeks, but I'll be sure to check Zara when I'm free again : )
