Dear Sasha, I’ve always dreamed of owning a tweed Chanel blazer.  But I’m still in university so I don’t have the money.  Can you find something that will work into my student debt?  Thank you! A


I always felt like I could say I “made it” if I had an office with a window and a Chanel blazer.  Sadly I’m batting 0 for 2, so A, before this reality sets in and I start feeling real bad about myself let’s do this! 

When you’re jonesing for a fashion hit, Zara is always there to save you.  And luckily for you A, a lot of their collection right now is a tweed haven.  I’ve narrowed down a few looks here, here, and here.

This style will never fall off the fashion wagon – it’s a timeless piece you’ll have forever.  So if you can invest some extra dough, I say go for it.  While this Isabel Marant ain’t cheap, it’s still less than the real thing.

The use of multicolored tweed is iconic for the house of Chanel and this one from Neiman Marcus is pretty perfection.

If you like the shimmer detail on the last one, but want to go a bit flashier then this Gryphon has your name on it. 

Finally, my favorite has to be this Alice + Olivia blazer.  It’s got the three very important C’s:  color, collar-less and cropped.  Sold!
