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.
