*Week 12 of My Great Shopping Plan of 2010, where I attempt to stay on a budget and fill out my wardrobe*
After last week, I only had $42 left to spend for the month of April. Some weeks I score a lot of great items, but this week it was just one, extremely awesome item:
J. Crew Yellow Knit Blazer, $31 on eBay
Gap filled: Blazers for work
I love it, love it, love it! It works so awesomely for me, it’s ridiculous. It’s a blazer with structure, but it’s made out of a sturdy knit cotton, so it has flexibility and doesn’t make me feel constrained, which most structured garments do. It’s a nice cropped length, which looks fantastic with pencil skirts, dresses, and maybe even jeans too. And did I mention that it’s yellow? Not only is yellow a color that I absolutely adore, but it’s also one of the school colors at the school where I work. I wore this there the other day, and I got lots of compliments on it. This is going to become a new staple rather quickly, methinks.
So that leaves $11 left for the month of April. Not bad.
