Marshalls Fashion Challenge: Blazer
I’ve truly enjoyed the Marshalls Fashion Face-Off Challenge the past two months, and now it’s time for the last Marshalls Face-Off challenge. If you missed my earlier outfits, our first challenge was to find fall booties, second one was to create an outfit with colored bottoms (I chose red!), and last week we were challenged to create an outfit with an equipment blouse.
This time we had a mission to find a great blazer for fall from Marshalls.
I think this was the most difficult challenge for me. I’m pretty small so all the blazers I tried on were always too big for me. I told a friend about my problem and she said: “Remember, that even a bit big blazer will look amazing when you roll up the sleeves and put a belt to your waist!” That sure is a good tip but even then many of the blazers didn’t fit me right.
Finally the due day came and I had to buy the blazer, no matter what. And guess what? Marshalls really know how to surprise people and the surprises are always pleasant. That day I found a Petites -section from the store for the first time, and they just had received new blazers. Finally I found a blazer that looked good on me and fitted perfectly. I think Marshalls just has it all for all different sizes!
This dark blue blazer with a hint of sparkle is from Jones New York and the retail price was $179. I got it at Marshalls for $59,99.
The blazer is a bit fancy and sophisticated and I think it will work fine at the parties as well as in a casual events. This time I didn’t want to make a party look so I pulled the outfit together with a simple white linen t-shirt, black skinny trousers and a ballet flats. I would wear this outfit when I would spend the whole day shopping with my friends. If you have to walk a lot then the flats are the best choice for me.
