The Thrifted Purple Blazer


For couple months,I had been feeling the urge to go thrift shopping and i gave in three weeks ago. I was specifically looking for a purple blazer and I lucked out when i found one for $3 (yes, $3) at the second thrift store i hit. I did not have cash on me and like most thrift stores, they did not accept credit/debit cards.The sprint to the ATM was nerve racking as I was scared of losing the blazer to another shopper.I came back to the store, and my beloved purple blazer was right where I left hid it. I also found three gorgeous silk shirts that 
I am equally excited about.It's been three weeks and I have rocked my 'new' blazer four times already.


              This is how i wore it two Saturdays ago.

Happy hump day
