Wearing: Forever21 Blazer -S, Loft Dress -OP, Jessica Simpson Nude Pump- 6, 1928 Necklace
I apologize for the delay. I meant to get this post up earlier but life issues kept getting in the way.
My wardrobe was lacking in the blazers department so I decided to do a little shopping. When I shop for blazers my biggest issue is that the shoulder pads makes my shoulder seem broad like I'm wearing football gears. For helpful tips on how to find a good blazer check out Kelly post How to Find a Blazer Jacket That Fits.
I went to Forever21 looking for an affordable red or white blazer but I ended up finding this green blazer instead. As I was strolling around the store this peplum sihouette caught my eye. The blazer is a beautiful green color which is perfect for spring and is lined inside with a striped pattern. It has shoulder pads but the peplum bottom help to balance out shoulder. The sleeves are a bit long but that didn't bother me since I knew I could just tuck in the sleeve or wear the sleeve rolled up.

What I like:
-The peplum sihouette gives the blazer a feminine detail
- It's fully lined with a fun stripe pattern
- Can be worn in a professional or casual setting
- The green color is surprisingly versatile
-The blazer nip at the waist which helps to define the waist
What I dislike:
-The material is soft and wrinkles very easily as seen in the photos
-The blazer is expensive for Forever21 at $29.80
- For me its the dreaded "Dry clean only"
Measurements - Small Laying Flat
Body: 64% polyester, 31% rayon, 5% spandex
Lining: 100% polyester
Even though I think the blazer it's kind of expensive for a Forever21 item. I decided to keep it since I don't have anything like it and can see myself reaching for the blazer often. Oh yeah and I can't forget that St. Patrick's Day is coming up so I've got to have my green ready so I don't get pinch. =)
