Nobody Believes This Target Blazer Is Only $35 (But Seriously, It's True!)

  Nobody Believes This Target Blazer Is Only $35 (But Seriously, It's True!) Fall has arrived, which means it's officially time to trade in those flouncy sundresses and tan-grazing, off-the-shoulder tops for some layers. But, while most people opt for a cute leather jacket or plush shacket, I'm partial to blazers. I know, I know, blazers don't have the best reputation, sartorially speaking. Sure, they might look good on HRC, but wearing them outside of the boardroom can give you some serious Working Girl vibes - and not necessarily in a hip or modern way.
