{outfits} This Week in Fashion

The weather this week was so crazy! Monday - Wednesday it was really nice out, except Tuesday morning when it was rainy. Then yesterday it was FREEZING cold, not cool Winter, not cool. Good thing I had my new hat to keep me warm!  Today I'm working a bit from home and then this weekend I'm going to a blogger meetup and babysitting. (and hopefully I will have time to watch my Dark Knight Rises DVD, I got it on Tuesday and haven't been able to watch yet!)

I tried to wear flares to work on Tuesday but it was a total bust because walking 1.5 miles each way is not very easy when you have flats on and your pants are too long.  I tried to roll them up but they wouldn't stay put, ha ha. Oh well...

In other, more exciting news, I FINALLY got the next size up in the Marc Jacobs blazer I wore on Friday! I've been searching for well over a year because my current one will no longer button (my chest grew when I stopped doing gymnastics.)  My bid was only $0.99 until the last 20 seconds when a vulture started to bid, luckily they gave up and it only went up to $6.50! Shipping was $14 though, BUT I had an eBay gift card so I only paid $10.50 in the end.  My current blazer is about to have it's 6th birthday, I won that one on eBay in 2006 and it arrived the day before Christmas Eve.  I'm going to keep it even though I'll have a new one, call me sentimental but I can't help myself! It can be my 3/4 sleeve, unbuttoned version for when I'm not in the mood for the one that fits properly (which I hope it does.)

  22. Your first outfit of the week has to be my favourite, I just love that bold print. And I'm so excited for you with that blazer, it has been so long that you have wanted it so YAY!! I hope this one arrives before Xmas day. You're lucky the other bidder gave up at such a low price, I always get into these vicious bidding wars and spend waaay too much haha.
