1 Piece, 3 Ways: Ann Taylor Fur-Trimmed Wool Blazer plus more

Recently, Amy and I had acquired the Ann Taylor faux fur-trimmed wool blazer that has been all the rage on the blogging scene. I had to call at least five stores to find one in my size and drove 20 miles each way to get it. This blazer seems to be inspired alot like the Elizabeth and James "Poe" blazer. If you've never heard of the Elizabeth and James brand, it's actually a line created by the Olsen Twins Sisters.

Blazer taken from Bloomingdales on sale for $459, original $765

Thankfully the Ann Taylor blazer was a fraction of the price compared to the "Poe" blazer and we actually purchased the blazers 50% off the sales price. So here we are demonstrating three looks from one piece as well as showcasing other blazers look as well.
