I really really like this Anthropologie sale piece (called the Forested Blazer) but, (1) it is still too expensive (2) especially if it isn't an additional 40% off and (3) I can't envision how to wear it professionally. Casually, it is versatile. Professionally I struggle to envision how I can wear it. And if I am going to drop cash on a blazer then it should at least be somewhat conference-friendly.
Some fit info: I am wearing a medium which fit like a glove. I wonder if perhaps I should have tried the large too. Part of my likes the snugness but that also contributes to its casual vibe. I thought the quality was there, although not for its full retail amount. The prices of recent Anthropologie pieces have been exorbitant in my opinion (even on sale). If it makes it to second cut land, I might grab one. But I have the To a Tee blazer which is basically a more neutral, easy to wear version of this.
