Balenciaga Piped Blazer *Update - 8/6/09*

Please see very bottom of post for update!

This blazer (in it's various forms) has a waiting list a mile long, and the price tag...? Well, let's just say you'd have to give them your firstborn.

If you like this look, but don't want to blow your entire budget...here are a couple alternatives.

J Crew - $250 (Now on sale for $99, and available in tons of colors and sizes! Also, if you purchase before Jan. 20th, you'll get an extra 20% off.)

Mango - $89

*Update - 4/28/09* - This is a pretty old post (originally from January 08!), but I came across this blazer today and thought it resembled the Balenciaga versions. So, if you're still looking for a similar blazer - Dillards has a great option. It's by Priorities and it's currently on sale for $31.80 (down from $148) through May 2nd!!

*Update - 8/6/09* - A great reader sent this find to me and I just had to share since the above versions sold out long ago. Aeropostale now has a take on the piped blazer and it is on sale for $40. Don't forget to use the code FRIEND8689 or PSFRIEND8689 at checkout to receive 30% off your order (through 8/9), making the blazer an even more affordable $28. Click on the photo below to purchase!
