The Commentary

I have been obsessed with Vanessa Bruno blazers for nearly a year.

Love everything about them.  The crop, the drape, the shoulders.
The promise that they'd make me look tiny and chic like uber-fan Rachel Bilson :)

The one thing I didn't like: the price. At over $800, the Vanessa Bruno blazers are nearly 3 times what I've ever paid for a blazer. OOF!  Sure you'd get endless use out of a black one but I wasn't convinced the colored blazers I wanted were worth the investment.

That's why I was over the moon when I got an email from Racked LA saying there was a big summer sale at Vanessa Bruno. Had every intention of going and possibly splurging on a blazer in the right shade of pink or sherbet.

But first I paid a morning visit to the L.A. Fashion District with my mom.  And wouldn't you know it,  there waiting for me was the exact look I wanted. Sure it's not a fine fabric but it looks anything but cheap. The cut and drape are dead on. And the color is what I liked most of all. Strike that, the price is what I liked best: $25.

On that same trip found these intricate little beauties. Very Balenciaga with the braiding. Just $20.

Also scooped up this bracelet that was the perfect compliment to the jacket.  Looks a bit YSL, no?   Only $12.

Moral of the story: when you're in LA, do your wallet and closet a favor and hit the Fashion District.
