Shopping Plan: Week 12

*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.

    Great blazer! I could use something like that for work too (although I might have to check if it comes in a colour other than yellow, which doesn’t work so well for me).
