Hi guys and finally back to reviews! As you can see I took these pictures while on the road so you have a stunning vineyard in the background instead of the usual boring gray walls of my garage/workplace. I wore this out while wine tasting around Paso Robles (and a quick note: if you think Napa wine tasting is great, Paso Robles is even better! Especially if you like dark and spicy reds! They do great zinfandels and cabs, and I think the California central coast wine makers are quite underrated!). Anyway back to the review of this silk blazer from Grana. I originally purchased the sleeveless silk blazer from Grana (review here) and though I wore it for a Fall 10x10 challenge, I never really wore it after that. The silk combined with the fact that it's sleeveless made it pretty impractical. So I decided to go for their sleeved version and I love it 10 times more.
The blazer is made from 22mm Georgette Satin silk on the outside and 18mm satin silk for the lining (yay for double layered silk!). And as I said in the past, the georgette satin is my favorite of the two types of silk that Grana uses since the satin is smoother and thicker. And I really love the weight and smoothness of this silk blazer! Like the sleeveless blazer, this one also has pockets though they aren't super deep. I love the shawl collar and the way they have a separate panel of silk for the bottom so that it gives the blazer some shape overall (take a look at the pic below to see what I mean). So even though this blazer is long and I'm short, I don't think it overwhelms my petit frame like some other oversized blazers.
Oh and I'm wearing a size small here (for reference I'm 5'4" and about 125 lbs).
For $199 this is a pretty pricey piece but for the quality that you're getting it's worth it IMHO. And you can get 10% off your first Grana purchase with this link (thanks for your support guys!).
And speaking of blazers, has anyone tried out Everlane's new oversize wool blazer? I'm interested in trying it out but I'm thinking it's going to be too long for my petite frame.
