So a couple weeks ago I went to a local thrift shop that I used to frequent and found a RADICAL {and silly – but I like clothes with a sense of humor} light purple blazer that just so happen to have the original Nordstrom tag on it. It was priced at $34 and when I went up to the register I mentioned it’s high price to the 100 year old cashier who takes her job too seriously and she said {in your best granny voice} “Well, it’s brand new” I quipped back “Brand new from 1987!” – and she gave me the evil eye. I bought it anyway along with a couple others which I am really excited about and the little shop donates all proceeds to cancer research so it’s a write-off 🙂

Anyway, I wore it a couple weeks ago when we went out to Firefly for Chad’s birthday over a little black bubble mini and LOVED IT. Yesterday my husband informed me that it was horrendous. I told him he didn’t know fashion.

I just found this photo of Rihanna from a photoshoot with InStyle Magazine on this blog and the outfit is almost identical to mine. {but the background is not nearly as cool}

    I love that blazer. I think the fact that’s it might be from 1987 is a major bonus …
