For those of you who have been jacket-shopping recently, you know that Marketa’s pose for this photo isn’t much of an exaggeration. We found ourselves asking the age-old question: Is it too much to ask for a blazer that looks good buttoned? And of course we came up with the same old answer: Apparently, yes.
The back of this BCBG jacket fit like a glove, but for over $200, the price should include the option of being worn fully buttoned.
We found many classic suit jackets and beautiful knits on Friday, but Marketa is searching for a woven blazer with a little “something” to it that she can wear with a dress or jeans. We came away empty-handed from Macy’s and Lord & Taylor, but we haven’t finished our search.
After the jump, see this extra-small BCBG jacket on our 34D saleslady. I ask you: Could she really be a 34D? Marketa thinks maybe. I think no way. Either way, she looks great in the jacket, even if she can’t button it either!
|A cute Macy’s option, but something wasn’t right about the shoulders. Also, a little too fussy for Marketa’s purposes.|
