Seeing Double


It's Melwear Thursday and today's outfit is a special one. Why you ask? Because it my birthday!! *Round of  Applause* Oh, thank you!! Quick story. I went thrift shopping a few weeks ago and found an old school denim blazer that I just loved. The jacket was huge but who cared? I sure didn't. I figured I would either get it professionally tailored or take in it myself. When I showed Mel my goodies and told her that the jacket was a little big, she tried it on and it fit. It fit really well. A little too well. Mel then made the suggestion that I didn't have to get it tailored; I could rock it a little big like the camo jacket style. You know, so we can share. Usually I'm open to sharing anything with Mel but I did not want the jacket to be as big as it was, meaning I didn't want to share. Here goes the sad face. Okay we can share. Wait, no we can't. I'm sorry honey. I then take the jacket to an alteration shop and the little old lady tried to charge me $50! If I wanted to pay that much, I wouldn't be thrift shopping. I then decided that I would just take it in myself. When it comes to my sewing I take my sweet ole time to get started and finished so I have yet to begin the tailoring process. Fast forward to last Friday. We grabbed a quick dinner at Fresh Choice and I made a spontaneous decision to go to the thrift store down the street. :-) Lo and behold, what does Mel spot? The same denim jacket in a smaller size. Hmm, let's see if it fits. OMG, it fits! I think I like it, I really really like it. Wait, you just want the other blazer huh? You're not slick. But, hey we're both happy. Now you have to dress like me for my birthday! *Round of Applause* We chose some rust colored pants, striped tees, and red chucks. I added my bracelets, studded watch, neon belt, hoop earrings and a couple of necklaces to complete my look.  Happy Birthday to Me!!

I'm not doing anything special or going anywhere fancy because this right here is special enough. 
What are your plans for your next birthday?
