I have been looking for a striped blazer to replace my old one for quite a while. My old one was 3/4 sleeve length and each side came to a point at the bottom which made layering more difficult (the things you realize after an item has been purchased!). It was a small miracle to find one thrifted! When thrifting at a store or online I don't go with an agenda. I might want to add a general item (e.g. more sweaters), but because you never know what will be there I never have a specific item in mind. But nevertheless, I found this during Twice's closeout sale in July. It was exactly what I wanted. A jersey knit, 1-2 button closure, full sleeves, and uniform length hem all around. I am really looking forward to wearing it more this fall. 
What kinds of things have you had to re-purchase because you realized they weren't quite right in the first place?

  9. I've made the same mistake so many times!! My white jeans weren't as skinny as I'd like and stretched out too much during the day. Last time I wore them was in December and I still haven't found a replacement! Those pants are the closest to my pair of green jeans I've ever seen! I pinned this combo to try--I don't think I've ever worn them with navy, genius!

  15. Dear Laura, looking at your fabulous bright green pants you paired with a classy blazer, I feel how boring and uncreative I am.
