Goldilocks and the 3 Chambray Blazers

We all know the story of Goldilocks and when she goes to a house in the woods to discover a house and find the perfect porridge and bed.  So this is my story of me staring as Goldilocks and 3 chambray blazers.

I have been on the hunt for a chambray blazer for a couple years.  It seems the stores come out with one every year and it's filed so far back in my mind that when I spot one there are few sizes left and I am left to wait till the following year.

Somehow I lucked out and found 3 chambray blazers this year.  The first one I found was this one.  I liked the darker denim color and was excited to see the cut of the blazer.  I went to the store and was so crushed that the fabric felt cheap and could wrinkle easily just not what I expected from the pictures online. 

The next 2 I ordered online and you can see them in the pictures below.  Guess which one I kept?

Blazer 1, the double breasted blazer from Banana Republic or blazer 2 from J Crew.

I was so excited when I got these blazers in the mail.  I love the fabric of the Banana Republic blazer, it was exactly what I was looking for.  I don't own too many double breasted blazer and thought it would be a good change from my standard M.O.

I knew that I would love the J Crew blazer since I already have the same cut blazer in other colors and have always appreciated the quality of their blazers.  They are always so timeless and can be worn for work or a dressed up weekend look.

I was so crushed with the fit of the Banana Republic blazer.  The cut was too boxy and did nothing for my figure.  It looked so much more sleek in this photo.  

Slipping on the J Crew blazer felt perfect as I expected.  I ended up keeping this one.  

So moral of the story is that there may be many similar items in the market but you have to try to find the perfect one for you.
