|Gold Brocade Jacket Christian Dior | Quilted Bag, Black Pants, Earring and Rings Forever 21 | Gold Peep-Toe Ruffle Flats Steve Madden|
I am going to stop attempting taking my photo on Wednesdays nights when I have class. 1) It is getting darker earlier and I like taking my photos outside (which will be problematic once it starts raining) and 2) I utilize time before class to finish homework and cram before a quiz/exam. Being a student while working full-time is actually kind of hard.
That being said, I wanted to share Thursdays outfit since it seems worth sharing because of the amazing jacket. I generally prefer Crossroads Trading Co. over Buffalo Exchange, but in this case I make an exception. During my Las Vegas trip in July, I found this amazing gold brocade jacket by Christian Dior at a Buffalo Exchange in Las Vegas. I went thrifting looking for something that sparkled, and I was not disappointed.
My look is kind of edgy today, perfect for going out for some cocktails after a long day at work. (And it was long since I worked an extra hour and deserved the cocktails I had with some coworkers!) I would have loved to wear this 40's-inspired jacket with heels, but the flats matched the gold on the jacket perfectly (especially with the little ruffles looking like the roses!) I got a couple of mix reviews from co-workers, but the general consensus was that the jacket looked good on me. (yay!)
What would you wear with this jacket?
