Thrift Find: Multicolor Striped Blazer

Is it even possible to pass a striped blazer with every color in the crayon box Pantone Spring Fashion Report and not pick it up? I couldn't do it. I had to see what it was. It turned out to be a perfectly fitting vintage poly knit blazer with awesome chevron patch pockets.

One of the main reasons why I thrift is because I like to find one of a kind original items. I like trendy sometimes but it's just so much more fun to play in a closet full of oddball unique pieces.

I cannot believe this next thrift store find -- J Brand jeans! That's my thrifting white whale. Now I can stop thrifting! It's the one brand I had never seen in a thrift store. I've heard good things about the fit and was so excited to see them and its colored construction paper price tag.  $7 on a half price day -- $3.50. Pow!

They retail between $150 - $200.

I like them but they are low rise. I gave up plumber butt jeans about a year ago. I'll keep these though and have to remember to wear very long tops.

They are super long too. I made a faux jeans hem by tucking some of the bottom in but leaving the hem exposed. I'll sew them officially one day......or not.

They also happen to be quite similar to the pair I have on my weekend casual polyvore. I will have to make more fashion vision boards!

Pointy toe shoes have been on my ban list too. I haven't worn these kitten heel purple pretties in a while. They're actually pretty comfortable since the heel is so low. They don't squeeze left baby toe either.

Shut up! I can't believe you found J Brand jeans at the thrifty!! I would freak out if I found a pair of those. So far (of course), my white whale would have to be this pair of Cole Haan moccasins that I got for $.99 (http://www.feverthrift.com/2011/06/99-off.html). They are really worn in and perfectly distressed and totally my style...they probably wouldn't make it anyone else's white whale list, lol. But I'm with you in that way, I thrift because I like to find one of a kind, original items :)
