This is a bit of a mundane quest, but I’m looking for a good blazer to dress up jeans … the places I go either have more conservative blazers more suited for business, or more stylish looks but not very well cut. I’m looking for something feminine, a little different, and hopefully not bank-breaking if possible (under a hundred dollars). If you can suggest some places, that would
be great as it’s perfect blazer season!

Your best bet right now is Femme de Carriere. Yes, the shop is more business orientated but they are having a great sale right now and blazers are cheap. I have like 3 suits from these guys and they are really good for the price. I’ve gotten 300 dollar blazers for 70-90 bucks. Here are there locations:

Eaton Centre
First Canadian Place – it’s called Atelier there, but it’s the same store
TD Trust Towers

The blazers are classic mostly, but there are a few fashion forward cuts to choose from also. Maybe the readers can give you more suggestions. Stay away from Suzy Shier, their cuts are horrible.
