A trip to Bloomie’s yielded the following finds. They can all be found at the Bloomingdales on 59th/Lexington Ave. in NYC.
I have been eying this Theory Darlin double-breasted denim jacket (I love everything double breasted) for a few weeks now and finally decided to take the plunge even though it wasn’t marked down significantly. After the tweed Theory skirt suit fiasco (I tried hunting down the Theory Lecture Gratian blazer that PAG, AN, and Really Petite bought and the search was a total flop, I don’t think I’ve ever wanted a blazer this badly) I decided if I liked something that is work-appropriate I would allow myself to get it even if it’s not that well discounted.
Still available in 00 at the 59th/Lexington location. I got the matching bottom in 00 as well only because I figured it was better to get the matching bottom than to be without one period. I would’ve preferred a skirt but sadly that wasn’t available.
The blazer was originally $375, on sale for $281.25, there was an extra 25% off discount so I got the blazer for $210.94 before taxes. The pants were originally $225, on sale for $180, was $135 after the extra 25% off.
The 00 is not available online but several online retailers carry other sizes. Saks is selling it for full price but it is available in 0 here.
On sale at Neiman Marcus for $225, only available in 4, 6, and 8 here.
Bloomie’s has it in a khaki color.
If you want to get this jacket, you should just call up any Bloomie’s and they’ll be more than happy to do a charge & send. It looks like B&M Bloomie’s has the best price and sizing selection at the moment.
I really like Aqua things – I tried on about five blazers and several bottoms today but only purchased one since none were discounted. I’ll be tracking them online to see if they get discounted but I didn’t want this one to sell out at size 0. Really very cute in person, and only $108.
It’s currently available online as well in all sizes.
The last of my purchase from Bloomie’s was this Pippa charcoal blazer. I snatched up the last one in 0 and was going to get the matching pants but they didn’t have any 0s available. I have never heard of Pippa before but I liked the cut of this blazer. Wasn’t on sale but I think it’ll get a lot of wear so I bought it for $168.
I can’t find this exact blazer on Bloomie’s website but here’s a really close relative in black.
I also received this Jack BB Dakota fake leather jacket today in the mail. I am a little disappointed by the material but it was really fitted on me so I was happy.
I realize the quality of my pictures isn’t great. Really can’t do much with taking pictures of my reflection in the mirror. I just realized that the colors look kind of the same…sorry! If you are interested in the material I’d be more than happy to take a more detailed picture for you.
