I am sucker for blazer/jackets. I probably own at least 20+. As my collection of blazer grows and along with the lack of closet space, I am trying to be a little more selective in what I buy. I need to start asking myself questions like:
- Do I already have something in this color/cut?
- Can I wear it year round?
- Can I wear for work and weekend?
- Does it need to be dry clean?
- Does it require alterations?
- Is it a trend or classic item? If it's trendy - is it worth the $$?
I know these are such simple questions that I should consider all the time when I make a purchase but I am way too impulsive. So when I found this blazer at WHBM, I asked myself these questions and the answers led me to purchasing the jacket. Yes, I do have a couple of gray blazers but he ruffle details on this jacket made it so classy & unique. I also love the darts on the jacket which is flattering on most body types. The details on this blazer made it so special - that it came home with me.
Do you have a questions for yourself or rules when making purchases?
On a totally unrelated note, I wanted to know if anyone has bought clothes from Boden? It's the Great Britian's version of J Crew. The clothes are beautiful but I just have not taken the plunge. If you have bought from them, I would like to know how their sizing and quality is.
