Every year, I thumb through the pages of magazines and tear out all of the wonderful heaps of winter coats, blazers and jackets that I hope to eventually own. While some things are worth spending on, like a classic trench in a khaki color or a black pea coat, I have a hard time justifying trendy pieces that come at a costly price. So began my dilemma with Sonia Rykiel’s crest embroiderd blazer, that completely fulfills my need for prepster schoolgirl attire but for way too much money. When I came across Forever 21′s satin trim blazer with pin, I knew that the adorable crest and gold tone buttons were way too similar to pass up. What do you think, crave or save?
