It seems as though it might be a bit taboo in blog-land to admit this, but here goes: I like to buy multiples. When I find an item of clothing that fits me well, I tend to buy a few of them (once the price is right, of course!). Loft’s modern skinny jeans, Banana Republic’s Luxe tees, and, most pertinent to this post, J.Crew’s schoolboy blazers are just a few examples.
I had some extra cash in my PayPal account from eBay sales this month, and I decided to spend it on a new camel blazer. My orangey-red blazer is J.Crew’s schoolboy cut, and it seems to fit me quite well. I scoured eBay until I found a camel version in my size and in excellent condition…and for a fraction of the $200 retail price! I really like its warmer camel color compared to my old one, and I feel like it will last for years to come.
