[blazer: Elizabeth and James, t-shirt: Target, jeans: Macy's, bowler hat: Forever21, heels: Plato's Closet, purse: thrifted]

This outfit includes some of my best thrifted finds EVER. When I came across this Elizabeth and James blazer in a thrift store in Houston, I almost died. I bought it for $20 when I know the original retail price was probably above $400. I normally despise anything with real or faux fur, its just not my thing. But the faux fur trim on the bottom of this blazer is perfect, its subtle and accentuates the hips nicely. I bought this black croc Hermes-birkin-bag-wanna-be at a Goodwill if I remember correctly. And the heels are from Plato's Closet, which I'm not sure really counts as a thrift store. I usually never buy shoes secondhand, but these were in never-worn-before condition and are surprisingly comfortable.

Oh and thanks to the random girl downtown who told me she loved my shoes by the way, if by some small unlikely chance you are reading this blog. As for the rest of you guys, lets hear it for outfit number two!

  8. Love this jacket and the heels. To me it is great when basics (like a jacket or pair of black pumps) have a couple interesting elements to add personal style and spunk. This outfit is excellent. - Katy
