Thriftanista Style File: Floral Capris

I had a fabulous time at Juicy Couture's Beach Weekend Packing Party. It was a great evening of food, drinks, music, and fashion.

What I Wore
I fell in love with these floral capris while visiting Unique's 50% off sale. I think I paid $3 (or less) for them. They fit so well that I want to trace them and use them as a pants pattern. 

I wore the jacket on the right even though I liked the one on the left better. I didn't want to have to fuss with the very long sleeves on the white jacket. 
Which one looks better to you?

I am also wearing glasses instead of contacts. My contact lens disintegrated in my hand while I was getting ready and I have no more. I'll be wearing them until I do some research to find the cheapest exam and lenses available.
White Jacket / Zebra Jacket - HM / Covington (thrifted)
Black tee - DZ
Floral capris - Eric Casual (thrifted)
Purple pumps - Caressa (thrifted)

Neon yellow nails with gold glitter. The glitter is the only thing keeping this very flaky polish on.

I was completely starstruck when Corri McFadden of VH1's reality show House of Consignment and owner of eDropoff walked in.
I love the show, female entrepreneurs, resale and eBay!
In other news: this is my first time ambushing someone saying "can I take a picture with you?"

Pretty blue jacket


Love the tap shorts from the new collection.

The swag bag.
Anyone need an iPhone case?
Leave a comment if you want it.

I love my fashion illustration self. She needs a name.

Have you ever ran up to someone for a picture or autograph? Who was it?
Any leads on the cheapest contacts available? I'm talking dirt cheap!

Same thing happened to me with my contacts! I am rocking the glasses until I find the cheapest exam and lenses too! In 2002, I went Vegas with a friend. I ran up to Michael Jackson and got a hug and picture! His bodyguards tried to "remove" me but he said it was okay! He was wearing a sweet kimono and leaving a Judith Lieber store.
