Snowflake Lane

Shirt: Hand-me-down (orig. H&M)
Blazer: Thrifted (orig. Anthro)
Jeans: Hudson
Booties: Payless
Scarf: Gifted (from India)

I wore this out to dinner on Black Friday. We weren't planning on going shopping, but since we ate really close to the mall, we just walked over to take a peek in Crate and Barrel. I love holiday time, when they put up the "snowflake lane" and have nightly shows of drummers, lights, and music all along the busy street. So festive!

I was on the hunt for the perfect blazer for the longest time, and decided to go check my neighborhood Goodwill one day. I found this little gem, which happened to be perfect. My size, cute shape, (ugh, so many ugly blazers at Goodwill!), good material (twill), and it happened to be 50% off! Then, with my 20% off coupon, it came out to be $3.50. SO AWESOME. Plus, it was in great condition, so after a trip to the dry cleaners, I was so excited to bust it out for the first time yesterday. I had never heard of the brand (Elevenses) so I Googled it and I *think* it's an Anthro brand. I have no idea because I've never stepped foot into an Anthro store or looked at their website. Not because I don't like their clothes, but because I know I'll like something and not be able to afford it.

I've had these jeans for a few months now but have only worn them a handful of times because they were hemmed to the wrong length. I finally re-hemmed them last weekend, so now I can wear them with my regular shoes. I'll be putting up a jeans hemming tutorial sometime soon (like, tomorrow?), just in case you're interested :) It's super easy!
