AX Blazer: To Buy or Not to Buy?

axblazer Usually I am quite decisive when it comes to making clothing purchases. But yesterday, I ran into a bit of a dilemma.  I tried on the Stand Collar blazer at Armani Exchange. The fit was great and I like the modern take on the blazer.  Although it is a bit feminine and reminds me of the jacket Anna wears on the new show V.  YIKES!   I left the jacket there but now I am wondering if I should I go back and grab it?

The image above doesn't do the jacket justice.  I would wear it differently, pairing it with a white dress shirt and either dark blue  diesel jeans or striped gray dress pants.  The other barrier is that the blazer is $165, which is definitely not in the budget with the holidays approaching.  Also, it only works for going out, eg upscale dinner or an event.  I am torn.  I am curious what you guys think, yay or nay?

Toggle It this Fall!

togglecardigan Toggle Cardigans and Coats are definitely in this season.  I spotted the above image in the October issue of Details and gasped.  I need this Boss Selection toggle cardigan by Hugo Boss.  In fact, I need the entire outfit...this is part of one of those spreads where I could buy everything shown. The Cardigan works great with the midnight blue henley and medium wash jeans by Armani Exchange.
