Basics: The Blazer;
My first ever blazer was from the new branch of forever 21 in Stratford Cities, Westfield Centre. I know this because I was still rocking the loan crutch while being stalked by an overzealous staff member who really just wanted me to sit down. I think because he was worried about me falling over and hurting myself but considering the centre had already claimed one ankle. I hardly thought that it was after my second.
It was dirt cheap at only £19.99 and it was perfect for my university days and like a gooey romance novel I just knew that it was the one. Right on trend with its Boyfriend fit it was both trend savvy while having thin enough sleeves that it was also crutch friendly. Something that that years winter coat was not. Which had faux fur sleeves that would get wedged above the arm support and leave for a rather unwelcome draft.
As with most f21 purchases though it really should have only stuck with me that year but somehow here we are almost two years later and its still a go to item in my closet. However those two years haven’t come and gone without leaving some bobbling and a slight tear in the left sleeve lining. So although I know I need to start looking for a new one really I’m kind of waiting for the next Zara Sale. I mean who isn’t?
In January I missed out on a gorgeous Zara blazer in a dark peach but because of one of those shoes or blazer moments ( The shoes won) I didn’t buy it and have regretted it ever since. I know that really a great fitting black blazer is really the only way to go forward when it comes to a great investment piece however! This time however I am looking for something slightly shorter in length and with a better fit around the waist. With that in mind now all I have to do is find the dream blazer! And how hard can that be?
