Aspire/Acquire: Elizabeth and James Sammi Blazer

Clearly, we here at OB HQ are not averse to a good bright pink. So this Elizabeth and James New Sammi Blazer (#1) caught our collective eye, but the price made us groan. $395 for a polyester-viscose blazer? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, we love ya, but that's a hefty chunk of dinero.

Solution? A hot pink Silence & Noise Boyfriend Blazer (#2) for a less cringe-worthy $78. For that price, we could buy four additional blazers in different colors (it's available in nine!) for the same total price as the E & J number. Man, we love bargain-hunting!

And, as always, if you've got something you love that's out of your reach, email us and we'll find you some more budget-friendly lookalikes for a future Aspire/Acquire feature!

Blazer #2 is a fantastic bargain - same bold pink color at a much better price. I like the cut of the less-expensive blazer more as well.

How's the fit? I have broader shoulders and sometimes find that cheaper blazers are more of a junior fit.

Gap has a very similar blazer in pink and green. It is on sale in stores now for 54 bucks!
