{outfit} The Seven Year Itch

You know how there are always a few pieces you have wanted for years and can't stop thinking about?  Well this is one of mine, a Marc Jacobs jacket I have been on the hunt for since 2005, that's 7 years folks... I fell in love with it when I saw it on Emma Watson in Teen Vogue and have been checking eBay religiously since, but it was never in my size, or it was $100+. I scored this one for $30.99, on eBay of course!!  If you recall, this is a similar situation to my other Marc Jacobs blazer: I saw it on Emma, needed to have it, and found it on eBay. Although I found that one in 2006 (and again more recently when I needed a larger size.)

Also, my favorite wide leg jeans have been feeling very neglected as of late.  I haven't been able to wear them all that often because during the week I wear flats while I walk to work and I can't have them dragging on the ground getting ruined.  But I think I may have a solution - for now - I'll stuff them into my flat boots while I walk and then change into my sky-high heels at the office. I took the opportunity to wear them when I went out to eat last Friday (and then for a quick trip to Marshalls where I bought a fur gilet I didn't need)

Well, that was certainly a ramble-y post, whoopsie!

Jacket: Marc Jacobs (eBay), Tee: Banana Republic, Jeans: Free People (Marshalls), Bag: Chanel, Sunglasses: Michael Kors (Marshalls), Watch: Michael Kors (Lord & Taylor)

  4. SERIOUSLY love this look! May be my all time favorite! I am so so excited you finally got your dream jacket! 7 years is far too long to want something. Where did you finally find it for $30?
    I am the same way! If I find something I love I will scour the internet looking for the best deal! Totally a girl after my own heart!

    Those jeans look amazing! I love the wash and am excited you found a way to wear them more! They totally need to be let out of their cage. Far too amazing to be locked up :)

  9. The jacket is lovely on you - goes to show that persistence pays off. I've had similar experiences with eBay (although never for such a low price!).

    Can't wait to see the burberry dress on you, bargain!
