Customize Your Own Blazer From Alex & Eli (We Tried It Out Ourselves!)

We're big pushers for conscientious, thoughtful shopping, and buying one piece that'll last a lifetime instead of 20 pieces that'll last a season. In that vein, the one thing that always gets us thinking long-term is the ability to make something our very own. In short: customization!. The very chic Alex & Eli just launched their website, and with it, a fun section that lets you personally customize one of the most important pieces in any woman's closet—the blazer. Choose the shape, color, lining, and buttons for a look that's all your own. We got a sneak-peek at the site, and tried it out ourselves. One quick pick-'n'-choose sesh later, and we got our own blue crepe blazer in the Weekender silhouette with polka-dot lining (and we threw on a fun mouse button, just for kicks). Create your own at Alex & Eli, or shop The Connie Blazer if you're into our creation!
