I did it.
I broke the ban and indulged in the extra discount.
Actually it wasn't overindulgent at all.
Here's what I got:
1. A black quilted "lady" satchel
2. A saddle brown leather jacket
3. A fatigue jacket
4. A black cardi w/ a vneck
5. A gray cardi w/ a vneck
6. An army green and gold stud tank
7. Some assorted militiary-esque medals and pins
8. This top
Now that I can wear jeans to work, I need some more versatile tops to go with denim.
Oh, sure, I have a million button ups and tees...but a few novelty tops that are not, well, over the top would be good too.
In fact, I wore it to work today with the barely boot jeans, a cotton boyfriend blazer and black booties.
As for everything else, I really pored over my decision making.
The cardi's were a necessity since I only own rounded neck ones and the fatigue jacket is for more "indoor" wearing and so right now.
If only I had saved all my old ones from back in the punk days....
The leather jacket (not real leather) is a beautiful cognac color....it will look amazing with riding boots I already own.
The tank top was just another great novelty piece for wearing from now until I tire of military inspired looks.
And the pins and medals?
Why they look like some old trinkets I may have thrifted or picked up at a flea market.
They are begging to be worn all together...maybe on a denim jacket....
Now that I have gotten that out of my system....back to the straight and narrow life of no shopping!
