Good Karma

Do you believe that everything you put out, you get back, ten fold?

Today I get to announce that the winner of my gold watch is Jessica from Style Obsession!
Congratulations! I'll be emailing you soon!

And I also get to show off the wonderful things that I won last week -- a gorgeous Silver Karma Bracelet from Blush that is thanks to 365 Fashion Rehab, and an adorable pair of Silver Rose Bud Earrings from Giles and Brother thanks to Spoils of Wear!


So you can see why I believe in putting out as much good karma as possible.

Good Karma

The Rundown
Top Gap - Capris TJMaxx - Wedges Unlisted - Scarf TJMaxx - Sunglasses Simply Vera - Bracelet Blush Botique

Today's outfit features this cropped swing jacket purchased in '07. I don't think I've worn it in two years, deviating from boxy shapes to curvy ones. 
It really surprised me this morning, as it was not my intent to wear it, and I didn't think it could actually work with this black lace skirt. Yet, as my eyes scrutinized the clothes hanging on the bookshelf, this jacket was the piece that jumped out.

What do you think, is the cropped jacket closet-worthy, or should I move on without it?

I completely believe in karma. I recently did a post about respecting others. We are all on a one way path through life, so we should make it as ince as possible for everyone.
Also, love your collada ring :)

I like to think that if you treat others with kindness that you will receive the same treament in return - which I guess, is karma isn't it :)

Lorena said...

I am not the one to ask if u should keep or toss.
I have the same jacket in another brand and color and have a hard time wearing it because it is boxy and the fabric is thick.....

Mimi said...

i do believe in the law of karma. that's why no matter how angry or upset i am at someone, i try not to do anything to hurt them because i'm afraid it'll come back to me. congrats on winning those giveaways, btw! and as for the jacket, i say keep it! :D

<3, Mimi

I'm actually not a huge fan of the jacket. It is, indeed, too boxy. I love the lace skirt though! SO pretty.

i want to win that bracelet!!! it is perfect!

Frances Joy said...

I have a similar jacket. Well, two. One that's almost exactly that style but navy blue, and the other that's a very similar style and also khaki. I actually love mine because they balance out all those really fitted pieces. Plus they've got a bit of a sixties vibe that I totally love.

Ali said...

I love when unexpected outfit combos pop out! Times like that are where I feel I don't need to go shopping again and just need to look harder. :D I love that lace dress of yours, and congrats on winning stuff! <333

Sarah Dee said...
