best thrift score ever




(dolce&gabbana long jacket, t by alexander wang tank, aa skirt, alex&chloe necklace, h&m tights, chanel glasses)

Last weekend I found the thrift score of a lifetime. This Dolce & Gabbana long jacket is hands-down the luckiest thrift find ever. It's in mint condition, fits me perfectly, it's lined with leopard-print satin...and it was only $30. I was utterly blown away when I found it. The squared shoulders are lovely, the extended collar is slimming, and the satin is oh-so-comfortable. Whenever I'm feeling down about something, I'll put on this jacket and it will remind me that life sometimes throws unexpected good things my way.

Sheer tops can sometimes be tricky to wear...I paired my tank top with a black bandeau bra and high-waisted skirt. This keeps everything covered enough to be decent, but the sheerness balances out the strong color and fit of the jacket. When wearing menswear, I like to add a few girly pieces...thus, the sheer top, red lipstick, and curled hair.

I haven't been able to take this jacket off since I got it, and I expect that it will last me many years. The things you can find at thrift stores are truly mind-boggling.
