Stripes and Blazers

I have blazers in 8 colors, which sounds crazy.  Nine if you count stripes.  But if I did it all again I would not have gotten some of them–including my black blazer.  Is that a sin to say?  I got a black blazer because every darn wardrobe “essentials” list out there says “every woman NEEDS a black blazer.”  You know what lists I’m talking about?  Well, if you’ve read the Wardrobe From Scratch Series you might recall me saying that I don’t like those lists, and every time I pass over my black blazer I’m reminded exactly why.  Argh!
I much prefer my navy, grey, and white blazers over black for neutrals, and it almost feels wrong that I don’t feel the need for a black blazer when so many lists call it an essential, but I haven’t touched it in a long, long, loooong time.  What item on those “essentials” lists have you been duped by?  (Meaning, you bought it because it was on the list but have barely worn it.)
