This orange blazer was a recent purchase of mine. I instilled the secondhand-only shopping rule just a couple months ago but with the holiday season and subsequent Christmas shopping, I was in constant buying mode. Now that it's over and I'm back to reality, I'm done shopping. ...Hahahahaha. No, I'm not. 

But, seriously, isn't this blazer amazing? Also, a casual way to wear it.

  4. I absolutely love the bright orange and bold stripes!!!!  I'm on a shopping ban until September (gettin' hitched).  I have bent the rules a little.  Sometimes.  But really, it's not my fault because gift cards are a consumer trifecta of failure.  Depending on how you define failure.  Getting new rad clothes=no failure, but victory.  Spending money over the gift card allowance whilest on a shopping ban=minute failure.  Wa waaaaaaaa.
