I have been on the lookout for a velvet blazer to add to my wardrobe. I tried the gorgeous but $$$ Frame version on and loved it but not the price. After seeing earlier posts about the pink J.Crew velvet blazer I decided to order the pewter version. It was backorderd for a week or so but finally came yesterday. I was really disappointed. It is almost like outerwear, very thick and stiff (I think the lining was cotton which added to the stiffness). The gold buttons were weird with the pewter fabric and very cheap. Please forgive the photos (end of day and not styled, just a try on). I brought it back to the store immediately. While there I spied Angie & Suz's (failed) pink blazer and fell in love. It is on hold while I go back and retread their posts on why it didn't work for them (but maybe for me!).
