When I saw this jacket at the resale shop last year, it was OBSESSION at first sight.  Did it matter that it was too big, had hugongous shoulder pads, and maybe considered ugly by some others?  NO!!  It’s probably circa 1980s {based on the shoulder pads!}, labeled Neiman Marcus, and marked down to $25.  It was a #getinmycloset deal from the start.

I’ve been wanting to wear this jacket FOREVER {after I had it altered}, and the holidays will be a perfect time!  And why not throw it over a linen tank and leather pants to really heat things up?!

The Style Rx:  Brocade, foil, gold, and shimmer jackets are perfect for the upcoming holidays.  Pair it with a leather legging / pant and pointy pumps for added vavoom.  You’ll be sure to turn head.  Caution as it may cause feelings of excitement and total bada$$.

What do you think?  Thumbs UP or DOWN on this jacket!  I’m all about it but I’m probably biased because it has GOLD thread and trim.  You know how I am about gold!!  :)


By the way… if you are LOCAL, please Save the Date!  On December 11th, my friend Holland and I are hosting a holiday styling event at ReVint Boutique.  It’s a Fort Worth vintage and luxury consignment boutique – Can you say match made in Heaven?!  Doors will open at 7 pm.  Guests attending will receive 20% off all apparel and $20 off any handbag purchase during this exclusive event.   One lucky guest will win a special door prize – a retail gift certificate and a private shopping experience!

      Thank you Mica!

      And loving that Jeanswest Chelsea dress that you picked up. Even though you didn’t “need” it, I think dress are so easy while little T is little! Sometimes, you don’t have time to think about matching. So an extra dress is a bonus!! :)

      Thanks Jane!

      And I had those same animal parade cupcake decorations for little M’s first birthday in August, but I put them on mini bundt cakes! (Didn’t make anything from scratch this year bc we had just moved and all of my cake pans were in storage!) Aren’t they they cutest?! He isn’t old enough to start discussions about zebras or horses though! I’ve been meaning to post his bday pics on the blog, and you just motivated me! :)

  6. Wow Sam that is a gorgeous vintage jacket, and also what a great bargain. I love how you styled it, in love with those leather leggings too. You look amazing as usual.
