Thrifting has become a love-hate relationship for me recently. As much as I enjoy the thrill of the hunt and getting a good deal, the shopping experience (or lack there of) and time investment has me going to local thrift shops less and less. Regardless of my feelings, a recent stop into Goodwill proved to be fruitful when I came across this Chico’s brand laser cut faux suede jacket for half off.The details like the open drape front and float-away swing cut appealed to my vintage style sensibilities so I took the plunge and purchased it for a whopping $3. The neutral light tan color can go with practically anything in my closet, so I knew it would be a perfect fit. Although the laser cut leaf pattern is in fact a pattern, I am treating it like a texture that can be paired with other prints like this multi colored floral blouse I got from Anthropologie a while ago.Scalloped edges make this jacket special. I feel like it is a good mix of sweet and edgy. Sometimes pieces have all the detail on the front so I love it when interest is also on the back. Another second hand item I am sporting is this green statement necklace. This ginormous stone caught my attention when I saw a similar one in the movie Spy (I love Melissa McCarthy). It is a much cheaper version from Forever 21 that I scored on Poshmark. Green is my favorite color and it looks so good with my green pants.One thing I do not like about this look is that these pants shrunk after I washed them and they are a little snug around the thigh for my taste. I adore the color though so I am working with them regardless. Overall, this modern vintage outfit is perfect for a California fall day.Have you thrifted anything lately? I would love to hear what you got in the comments!
