Zippy

Last Friday I was perusing H&M and came across a brown leather jacket with large cargo pockets that I found myself, perhaps oddly, drawn to. With it's $300 price tag I knew it wasn't going to make it's way into my cart, and the fact that nearly all the sizes had already sold out made me realize I wasn't going to get it on sale either.

Then on Saturday morning I was flipping through a rack of leather jackets at Roundabout and this little beauty was sitting there. Not identical, but strikingly similar and seemingly meant to be mine. The jacket is by Anna Trzebinski and I took it home for $115 - less than the H&M jacket and undoubtedly of far better quality.

While it doesn't happen often, I do love it when just what I'm wanting magically appears in a secondhand store.

  2. It's obvious this jacket was fated to be yours. And real leather for $115 is a serious steal, especially since it's undoubtedly so much better quality than the leather at H&M (although I will admit that I have a number of H&M pieces kicking around in my closet that go back as far as 2009; the knitwear, at least seems to have some longevity, but I can't speak for the leather, which I would never spring for.) Plus, just like your blouse yesterday, it fits into your existing wardrobe so seamlessly - it looks like your bag and shoes and striped top were just waiting for this jacket to come along, knowing how fabulous they would all look together!

  3. I love it when that happens! This jacket looks great on you. The detailing with the pockets is fun. I can't imagine spending $300 on a jacket from H&M (but then I'm pretty cheap, lol!).

  21. That jacket is beautiful, what a great find! :) It's always ncie when yo uspot something similar to what you wanted at a more budget friendly price!

    Even better luck that it was in your size, that is often difficult to find (What you want, at the price and size you want) in a thrift shop!
