Searching for Staples Pt.1 - The Blazer

When it comes to shopping on a budget I've learned to invest in a few staple items. So, this week I set out to find an essential part of my dapper wardrobe: The Blazer. Blazers should be versatile. I wear mine formally or dress them down with jeans and my favorite pair of sneakers. I love my curves but I prefer when my clothing doesn't make them pop; so for this journey, I went to the Men's section.

I've tried on a lot of Men's blazers that don't fit because I am smaller than what's available! (Doing my research and will share in an upcoming post). However, I might have gotten lucky with JCPenney's J.F. Ferrar slim fit blazer in a size 36S. Check out my photos below for more detail.

 

Check me out full bod in a size 36S. I would probably tailor the sides down a bit.

 
 
It has double vents! This is helpful for the extra lovin' I have on my backside.

I tried on the grey but there a lot more colors and options available on JCPenney.com.  I will definitely be stalking the page for sales. I never underestimate what gems I can find in the clearance section. Any-who, where do you guys get your blazers? Comment below with any feedback!  -DapperPenniless
