{outfit} Topped in Tartan

In this look I'm wearing two things you don't normally see me in: tartan and a peplum.  For some reason (read: it's purple) I fell in love with this top last weekend at Lord & Taylor. I left it in the store since I'm doing the French Wardrobe challenge and my mom surprised me with it later in the week.  She got it for under $5 because it was on clearance, an extra 65% off AND she had a coupon, ha ha.  My mom is the queen of bargain shopping, it's how I learned to never pay full price. So even though I sometimes pay a lot for things, they're always on sale ;)

I'm also wearing my new skinny jeans, I think I finally succeeded in finding a replacement for my favorite Free People skinnies (their first appearance.) I loved them too much and the top section is now permanently wrinkled. They will remain in my closet because as long as I wear them with a long top they're perfectly acceptable (as seen here.) I tried so many other pairs but none were exactly what I wanted. I intended to give these a test run and order a second pair for when these inevitably get worn out, but my size already sold out.  Oh well, will just have to keep an eye out for them again.

Sweater: Abercrombie & Fitch (Coco's $5 sale), Top: J. Cooper (Lord & Taylor), Jeans: Current/Elliott (The Outnet), Boots: Cordani (Roundabout Resale), Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted, $2!), Necklace: Geoclassics, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports snake ring & Mom's

    I wonder if you can't save the Free People jeans by taking them to a good tailor?
