Looking for tweed blazer

Black trousers Mario Serrani - Black window pane print blouse Passport, similar here 
Black tweed blazer Xhilaration, similar on sale - Black tote bag Furla, similar 
Black velvet block heels Juicy Couture, similar

  
Tous silver bear pearl necklace, sim - Tous silver bear pearl bracelet, similar and matching earrings which I don't own here

You know I am a brick and mortar kind of shopper. Mostly because of sizing and because need to touch and try on items. Also I've had terrible experiences where my purchase was just a waste of money.  
So, I've been iffy about this tweed blazer, maybe too short, maybe too snug? I have not gotten rid of it because I want to find a replacement. My original plan is to go for a vintage Chanel however I need to try it on, which means I will patiently have to wait around. While that piece comes along I have been considering this blazer and can only wonder if it will look as good in person. I have purchased from this site before but its been more a miss than a hit. 
I fear it will be like that person that looks amazing in pictures and then you meet them and you feel cheated...

It's a cute blazer - keep it! I agree with the quality on the one you linked to - it is styled within an inch of its life! I think the fabric must be felt, and it looks cheap. Hang onto the one you have until you find the perfect vintage one.

Great outfit, Lorena!

I love your blazer and I think it looks really good on you! Definitely a good one to keep until you find your perfect one. I have better luck trying blazers and jackets on in store too.

Hope you are having a great week so far! It's been a little rainy here but not too cold so I'm still enjoying wearing shorts, haha! Such a strange autumn!

Tweed is always so classic, so I struggle with getting rid of any of mine!! I don't think it's too short----especially if you wear it with a dress??
You look fabulous here Lorena!!

A great tweed or boucle jacket is hard to come but I like yours and wow it is Xhilaration. Nice blouse too. Posh work look!
