When it comes to shopping, I tend to divide items into 'save' or 'splurge' categories. Iconic handbags? Always worth the investment. Shoes? Aim a bit lower. Anything super trendy? Not worth the extra money. A floral blazer, despite that fact that I currently want one very badly this spring, falls into this last category. That's not to say that this Stella McCartney jacket isn't a work of art. Impeccable tailoring, a flawless print, lovely texture, and subtle colors make it a near perfect example of what a piece outwear covered in blossoms should look like. Consider it the ideal I'll use to measure against much more affordable alternatives.
P.S. Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway with the FashFoward Boutique. Tomorrow I'll announce the winner…and a brand new giveaway that's just as exciting! x
