I’ve been feeling a little uninspired lately, and then I remembered this crazy rodeo┬ájacket that I bought a few months ago. I remember trying it on at a thrift store across the street and putting it back on the rack. Haha, apprehensive about spending $9 dollars? Apparently! Anyways, it took three trips to finally buy the jacket and I’m sooo glad I did. It’s a bit of a mess: fringe, gaudy leopard print, and a very 80’s esque cut (I actually took in the shoulders almost 2 inches on both sides!!), but it works–I swear!!

And take a look at the fringe on the back!!! I tried to get some full-mo shots, but as anyone who has shot me knows I can’t coordinate my face and body very well. It’s a work in progress. But I promise you this jacket has major movement.

This is just further evidence that you can take a perfectly regular outfit (tank and jeans) and turn it into something else with that special piece in your closet. Flashier the better. Ha!
