outfit of the day 060 // 18 Mar, 2012
VERTIGO PARIS tweed & leather studded jacket | OSCAR DE LA RENTA polka dot blouse | FOREVER21 skirt | ALDO boots | MARC BY MARC JACOBS weavy-t shifty
I think I’ve found the perfect jacket (we’re talking ones in my price range here.. otherwise I’d be moseying about in Balmain). I hadn’t heard of Vertigo Paris before but thanks to an ideeli red sale a few weekends back, I acquired this darling thing for a mere $24, retail $298. Perfect mix of a classic little Chanel-esque black tweed jacket but jacked up with quilted, studded leather panels and leather trims on the sleeves–my kind of jacket. A little more exploring on their site brought up these two pieces of perfection here and here. So sick. Want both.
And of course, no outfit of mine is complete without a decent percentage of it being thrifted items. For today, oldies but goodies: Oscar de la Renta blouse and chunky Aldo boots, both found for $5 apiece. I’ve had several readers comment/email/tweet me about potentially doing a post on thrifting 101. Is that something that you all are interested in? Let me know, and I’ll definitely get on it! In the meantime.. if you haven’t checked out theditto, it’s where I catalog all the things I’ve ever thrifted plus the thrift location and price.
Oh and, bag I’m wearing is the black version of the red/pink Marc by Marc Jacobs one i’m giving away! Check it out here, if you haven’t entered yet!
