Personal Shopper: A classic blazer for Stephanie

Stephanie writes: Hi Outblush! I've run into a bit of a mystery and of course I thought of you! I am really loving this jacket from some set photos of Ellen Pompeo on Grey's Anatomy...problem is, I haven't been able to find anything close to this that's reasonable. I found a jacket without the elbow patches that is similar from Ralph Lauren, but I can't spend close to $1300 on something like that (plus, love the elbow patches)!! Under $200 would be great! Any ideas? Thanks so much!

Hi Stephanie - Pompeo's jacket is indeed divine, but I don't blame you for wanting to spend a small fortune on a jacket. I did find one that's strikingly similar to the one you covet (No. 6) but at almost $300 it still has a rather hefty price tag. Still sometimes it's worth it to invest in something classic you'll love and wear for years. The other blazers are more wallet friendly but still have the same chic appeal.

1 - Boden Velvet Blazer ($86)
2 - Asos Power Shoulder Tailored Boyfriend Blazer ($109)
3 - Banana Republic Herringbone Military Jacket ($150)
4 - SOCIÉTÉ ANONYME - Fitted Cord Jacket ($185)
5 - J. Crew Navy Schoolboy Blazer ($188)
6 - Rugby Suede Trim Hacking Jacket ($298)

These choices are all great, but #6 is a winner! What's another $200 for something that perfect?
