What I'm Wearing: Call of the Wild

Whew! It was a busy work day today. Good thing I had my game face and leopard print on. I was an animal in my meetings. Well not literally, like growling at my clients,  ripping out throats or anything like that. I don't think that behavior would bode well for my career. Just a WILD guess. Get it? Yeah, it was pretty lame.

I have been waiting for an opportunity to bust out this double breasted red jacket. Isn't it pretty? I picked it up for a whopping $6.99 at Forever 21 on the clearance rack. The heavens opened and angels were singing the "Hallelujah Chorus." You know what I mean, right? Because this is actually a pretty thick jacket and the buttons are beautiful on it. It just seems a jacket like this would usually cost a whole lot more. I was pretty pumped. And now I'm rambling. My apologies.

  3. I absolutely would wear it! I LOVE the color of that jacket. And you're right, the buttons (and cut of the jacket) make it look expensive. Double breasted pieces do NOT do well with the "girls". But you look haute! Red and leopard always read "chic" to me.

  13. You look awesome Kassi and $6.99 for that jacket??? You did great! Also, I don't think growling at clients would boil over too well with your boss...unless that is you eat him first for lunch! HAHA!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
