Mission Accomplished

Happy Monday all!

It seems like I’ve been searching for a structured white blazer forever.  I have  almost every color blzaer  except for  white.  Most plus size white blazers I found were either  off white or ivory colored with 3/4 length sleeves,  made with very lightweight (practically see through) material with a loose/boxy  fit.  I almost gave up on my search until I came across this white Tahari Woman blazer on Nordstrom.com . As you ladies know, online shopping can be tricky so I wanted to try the blazer on before buying it. Luckily my local Nordstrom  had the blazer in stock so I called and had them hold a size 18 for me.   The blazer fit my arms but was bulky in the waist and needed to be taken in. Lisa (the sales associate) informed me that Nordstrom offers alterations in house, something I didn’t know. I nearly did a somersault when she told me this! Their tailor came to the dressing room and pinned the blazer to the fit I desired.  With the extra inches off my waist the blazer  fit  me  perfectly.   After paying for the blazer, I was told it would be ready the  following Saturday for  pick up.  I picked up my blazer yesterday and was completely satisfied with the results. I’m glad that my search for the perfect white blazer is finally over!

Have a wonderful day!

P.S. Sorry for the poor quality pics. It was raining outside so I had to take these indoor.

    As usual, you look great! This jacket was definitely a must have – I think that a white blazer is almost as essential as a black one. I love everything about this outfit Ms. G!

    Perfection! Were the alterations extra, or included in the cost of the blazer?

    • April 17, 2013 / 5:54 pm

      Thank you! The alterations were extra but it was the same price even if I had went to my tailor.

    It’s very cute! I was imagning a knitted cardigan when I read your post and then scrolled down to see you wearing… a jacket. 🙂 Very nice. 🙂 Funny, though, how language can differ so much country to country!

    p.s. How are you enjoying spring?

    fab blazer woman and you should always ask at the major dept stores about their tailoring offering, as most do them!
