Good Times

Sometimes I try on an outfit and love it until I see it in photos, and sometimes I'm all "Meh" about it, see it in pics, and then love it. This one is the latter of the two.


I love it even more, because my favorite component of the outfit, the black leatha motorcycle jacket - was $40 on consignment.


And even MO betta? Was the $299 original price tag I pulled out of the pocket when I got home. Awwwww YEAH.


And THAT is why I shop consignment and thrift, jive turkeys. 


Sigh. That little quilting detail on the shoulders kills me.


Hey - there's my Kate Young for Target arrow to the heart necklathe. How YOU doin...


Old pantalones that are muy comfortable. Shoes...not so much, but what you DIDN'T see is that later in the day when I realized it was colder than a witch's tit in a brass brawr, I changed into the only other shoes I had with me - my purple and neon orange Nike's. Didn't look QUITE as right as the silver ones, but comfort and warmth prevailed.


And that, my friends, is how a new favorite ensemble is born. Good Times.






Jacket: Consignment (originally Macy's)
Tee: Nordstrom's Rack
Pants: Old Navy
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Kate Young for Target

Merci,
Shan

I love how you styled this look and I am so jealous at your leather consignment find! Those pants are so cute! I've been looking for a tuxedo stripe pant like that and haven't found one that fits right. And lastly, thank you for the heads up on the shoes - i LOVE them! It was one of those times where i thought - are they as cute in real life as in the picture- and yes they were!

Good times indeed!

I'm mad those pants are old! They're exactly what I've been looking for but have only found in a skinny version (which I of course purchased anyway heh).

Awww thanks, ladies! Jenn - I probably shouldn't tell you that I got these on clearance at Old Navy last year for about $6.
