Top: GW ($2), Sweater: GW ($3), Jeans: American Eagle/GW ($4), Jacket: Moda NWOT/Ebay ($27), Bag: Fossil/GW ($4), Shoes (which I realize you can see…they’re sparkly gold flats): Chinese Laundry/GW ($3)
So, if you just happened to glance at the total for today’s outfit, you might have done a bit of a double take. After all, we rarely break the $20 line here at SHOBB.
But then, if you look more closely, you’ll see that my jacket is responsible for $27 of that total.
Now, I don’t know that Ebay qualifies as thrifted. This jacket was supposedly secondhand, but when I opened it up and inspected it, it was obviously new. It smelled new, looked new, was new.
So…regardless of whether I’m technically breaking my own rules, I decided I had to crow a bit about the super-cute, cognac-brown, ruffled 100% leather jacket that I scored on Ebay for less than $30 when they were asking over $100 everywhere else, and it retailed at Victoria Secret (go figure) for $178.
Oh, and an adorable mint-condition Fossil bag big enough for all my junk for only FOUR smakeroos?
Can we say, heck –to-the-yeah?
Why, yes, we can.
