Last year, I had my eye on this blazer all season long. I wanted it so badly, but I have approximately 27 other black blazers, and the price point was just a little too much for me to spend on something I basically already owned. Then, a week or so before our wedding in July (this year), I was at Marshalls when the leather lapel caught my eye. To my surprise, there was one of the exact jacket I had been coveting from AE, and it just happened to be in my size. Furthermore, it was less than $20, and I had a little leftover birthday money to spend. How’s that for pre-wedding luck?
In that same Marshalls trip, I found these jeans for $7. It is my first pair of colored denim, because, to be honest, I was a little afraid to try the trend. Now? I. Can’t. Stop. Wearing. Them. I ended up going back to Marshalls later that week and spent the rest of my birthday money on a purple pair and a pink pair.
