The blazer is clean of distraction, and has a streamlined silhouette. The sleeves on a size SMALL are long enough for my arms (*gasp!) and the shoulders are a good width. The entire inside has matching lining except for the sleeves, which has a cute white contrasting striped lining which pops out when the sleeves are rolled. There are also 2 side slit pockets and a breast pocket, which may come in handy at work to keep my keycard. Who knew Suzy Shier could make such a quality blazer? On top of that, it was only $35 RETAIL. You can even use your SPC card in store, which takes off an additional 10%, essentially saving you tax.

The other thing I like about this blazer is that it's the perfect red. It's primary colour crayon red, not too yellow and not too orange. That exactly why I paired it with my blue leather shorts. It's also a primary colour crayon blue, so I know they'll match perfectly. All I'm missing is some yellow and I could go in a crayon box!
If I button it up, it's a tiny bit big at the waist. But that's no biggie, because my seamstress (aka mum) can take in the sides like she does for most of my clothing. Thank goodness for mums! For now, I'm not too antsy about it so it can probably wait until later.
But other than that, I'm super happy about this blazer. After scouring Zara, H&M, F21 and Aritzia for similar ones, I'm elated that I stumbled upon this lil gem the first time I stepped in Suzy Shier in years. :)
