Dear outfit,
Thanks for working so well. I was running really late and I took a chance on you, but I freaking love you!

Yes, I am a happy little camper about this outfit. The casual cropped sweatshirt perfectly balances the shine of the jacket. I did good. I got this jacket a few weeks ago at Holt's Last Call. I know I've told you before of these amazing racks with 80-90% off the LAST ticketed price! Yes, there is a lot of stuff that is beyond hope or repair but there are treasures as well. Poor Matt. The boy's (men's, I guess) section is weak, the best deal is 10% off the last price. Better sales is another good reason to love being a girl, besides make-up and flat-irons (excluding Zac Efron). Anyways, 10% off $200 is still $180 for a shirt. So, Matt left me in my shopping stupor and explored the mall for an hour. I narrowed my arm load down to three items, including this amazing jacket for $30! Originally $750! There were a few loose threads but some scissor work took care of those and no one is the wiser. Oh jacket! You rock, your cut, your back detailing and best of all, your rusty, sparkly goodness.
The pants are a good find too. They are serious turkey-eating pants because they are so stretchy but yet, they are constructed and cut like a nice pair of cigarette pants. Maybe they are the perfect hybrid between leggings and pants...
Yes, the fakeness is still a top of my head in these pictures. I paid enough for it, so I figured I might as well work it for all it's worth. But as I sit behind the computer now, I'm all natural again with my little, sassy ponytail...

This outfit is perfection, and I am vicariously in love with your jacket as well. Aren't things like that so much sweeter knowing you paid a mere fraction of the original price?

Also, your hair (natural and bought) looks so snazzy! I would never know some of it's faux...
