Simply Studded






{Thrifted Studded Suede Jacket / Black T-shirt ~ Target / Trousers ~ Style & Co via Macy's / Vintage Gold Earrings and Chain Belt / 
Suede Booties ~ Steve Madden}


I picked up this gorgeous purple suede jacket at my favorite thrift store in July.  As soon as I saw the the color and the studs, my heart skipped a beat; I was IN LOVE. And the price tag?  $6.00.  SOLD! 

...but there was one problem.  After seeing the size on the tag, disappointment set in.  There was no way in HELL I was fitting into an XS!  But I knew I had to try. You just never know.



... I said a silent prayer and slid my arms in.  They went in!  And I loved it so much, it didn't even matter that I couldn't zip it.  I knew I would be wearing it open, cardigan style, lol. :) 

Bottom line, and my motto while shopping: Give it a try, it might work! 

I rocked it on Saturday {with leggings and a tunic} while on a road trip to DC with my girlfriends and I got so many compliments.  This color is so vibrant and rich; it's just stunning!

Popping it on today with this {all black everything} ensemble made my Monday just a little better. Just a little.  Oh, how I despise a Monday.  

Thanks for reading! xoxoxo!
