I purchased this blazer just over a month ago at Banana Republic Outlet in the clearance section. Typically red is more of an accessory color (or better yet, a lip color!) for me. I tend to pass it off as something too bold for my personality. Nevertheless, it was marked way down to less than 25% of its original price with an additional 15% off (thanks teacher discount!) and fit really well so I couldn't help, but purchase it. If I am on the fence about something I often purchase it and try it on at home to see how versatile it is with my other clothes. With the price, fit, and versatility, it clearly found a permanent hanger in my closet. It was perfect to pull out for Valentine's Day! Adding a bold red or pink is really all you need to do to be festive which is easy enough. There is so much range when you want to dress for a holiday like Valentine's Day. You can go all out with hearts, lace, and festive colors, or just add one colored item to your outfit. Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day no matter how you celebrate or what you wear!

  12. Great look! The pretty top looks great with the red blazer! I love the Banana Republic clearance section - such great deals. And I love your strategy to determine if an item truly works with your wardrobe.

    Have a wonderful day!

  13. I'm glad you got this Laura (we get some of the best deals from Banana Republic too) because it's perfect on you. I bet you felt the same way about it at first that I did when I got my pair of red jeans. Like I just wasn't sure they would go with much and did I want to stand out so much? But the more I wore my jeans, the more I love them. And I bet you'll feel the same about this jacket!!!

  25. I don't have a lot of red pieces either, but I do like to bring them out during the holidays or V-Day. That white top is so pretty with all of the ruffles! Banana Republic Outlet has great blazers, I got my navy one from there.

  31. What a great blazer Laura. It fits really well.
    All Banana Republic stores here closed last December, which was a true bummer as now I look at garments like this and know I cannot find them locally.

  35. That is an awesome blazer, sounds like a bargain too! I love when you find pieces like that :) I used to have a red jacket and I felt it was a bit too bright for me so I donated it, but every now and then I think of it and wish I'd kept it. It looks great with black and white like you're wearing it here. The ruffles on your top are cute too :)

    Hope you had a great Valentine's day and are having a lovely week :)
