Marc By Marc Jacobs Plaid Silk Blazer
I have been checking out blazers since last weekend. A gingham checks check that I had originally wanted in Zara was sold out of my size...so frustrating. So now I am scouting the net and the shops to see what is available and where to get them.
My criteria for the blazer is that it has to be fitted, no more than two buttons style, in summery colours, light-weight/airy (Singapore's killer hot weather cannot have thick jackets!) and at a reasonable price (again..Singapore weather do not justify wearing jackets all the time). With that in mind..here's what I have gathered...
1) Marc By Marc Jacobs Plaid Silk Blazer - US $428
2) Topman Blue/White Stripe Blazer - SGD $176
3) Topman White Razor Skinny Blazer - £70
All three styles looks promising for summer. But my favourite is the Marc By Marc Jacobs Plaid Silk Blazer. I think my 'bad eyes' always choose the most expensive of the choices:-( Yikes! I have the silk shorts in the same fabric and the feeling of wearing it is divine. I bet the blazer will be cooling and smooth to the skin as well...and feel almost weightless.
Time to head to the Marc By Marc Jacobs store to see if this is available.:-p
