Yesterday, I paid my a visit to my local LOFT, looking for a must-have pink blazer I spotted in the current issue of People StyleWatch (my style bible/guilty pleasure). But when I started searching the store, the jacket eluded me – even after I combed the racks several times over. I did spot two, however – only they weren’t for sale. Two of the saleswomen were rocking the blazer and it was like the fashion gods were taunting me.
One of the saleswomen noticed me admiring her jacket and confirmed that they were out of stock. But she reassured me that she’d help me order it. I thanked her for her help but whined that I’m hard to fit and wouldn’t know what size to order. She gave me a reassuring smile and then gave me the blazer off her back – just to try on, of course. Amazingly, it was a perfect fit – and we knew what size to buy.
So even though I didn’t walk out of the store with my prize in-hand, it’s on its way to my doorstep – and I can’t wait to wear it. It is TOO cute…and just the pop of color I need to punch up my neutral-heavy wardrobe.
It’s not available online anymore, so if you want this, you’ve gotta work a little. But it’s totally worth it, right? I mean, just look at it!
