to shop / the white blazer

I’ve been looking for the perfect white blazer for a while. What didn’t work: the Zara tuxedo style blazer which proportions were too big for my petite frame and the Madewell stable blazer, which was too expensive at $135 and the linen content made it prone to wrinkles and too casual for work.

I stalk Forever 21 almost every day. Its inventory updates Monday through Friday. I jumped when I saw this ponte blazer and checked to make sure that it would get here in time via free (ground) shipping. At $32.80, it is a pricier F21 item but worth every penny (and the return postage for the size that didn’t work). It’s since sold out online, but you may be able to find it in stores. It fits TTS to slightly large. I also need to get the sleeves altered and it slightly smells. I am a big fan of ponte — when it is cut well, it’s suitable enough for work and super easy to maintain. This blazer weight is also thick enough not to be super see-through and show the layer beneath.
