friday favorites: black blazers

I have a terrible confession to make. I don’t own a black blazer. I know! It’s like the one item everyone must have in their closet and I don’t. Awhile back I had a crappy one from Forever 21, but the button fell off and there went that. So now I’m on a mission to find a black blazer that fits impeccably and is good quality. Because I really shouldn’t be living without one any longer, especially as fall is approaching.

Of course, I was immediately drawn to #3 and #4 and realized why – they’re Rachel Zoe. #4 is definitely out of my price range, but #3 is on sale so even though it’s still pricey for me, if it fit well, it could very well be worth it.

I really like the sleeves and shape of #2. And the price tag is even better – on sale for $45! Yeah, baby. But not exactly a classic black blazer. #5 is interesting. I like that it’s a different shape than a typical blazer and kind of militaristic, but, again, I think I need more of a classic shape to start. Once I own a classic black blazer, I can move onto other shapes and textures.

What’s your favorite? Do you own a black blazer? Of course you do. If you don’t, you’re making me feel better. ;)

Have a happy, happy weekend!
