The $14 Italian Blazer? Yes, The $14 Italian Blazer.

I was super excited after winning the Santana Row Facebook contest of the day. I merely had to be the first one to answer the question about which Haute film is playing on Sept 9 at The Row. Answer being: The September Issue. Instant win. I received two tickets to see Lewis Black at The Mountain Winery venue Friday night. Retail value from $35-$65 a piece.

I was feeling pretty solid about my luck status and decided to make a run to Crossroads Trading Co. and bring in my bags of clothes, just for funsies. Besides my closet was getting pretty packed with tops and dresses that I haven't worn in a year or two.
I decided to browse around, how could I resist, surrounded by racks and racks of deliciously great deals? Instantly, as if my fingertips magnetized and clasped on to a black fitted blazer,I found my destiny, it was an Alberta Ferretti item priced at $65! I could hardly believe it, considering it a fake at first until I looked closely at the stitching, fabric and classic Ferretti buttons, I knew I had to try it on. It fit like a glove and it's exactly what I have been looking for.
"Franci" I hear from behind the cashiers table, calling upon me like angels in the heavens, "We took 9 items, that comes out to $56 in trade." Awesome (hallelujah!), I say as I bring my new treasure item, discarding the old items at will. With tax, my Italian made blazer came out to $14.00.
Haven't been happier since I found that Jimmy Choo pump for $1!

Just in case you don't understand what a great deal it was, I checked out the pricing online, and found a similar blazer, originally priced at $545! Believe this.
