Hi there. I know. It's really late. This week has been a trying one to say the least. But I won't bore you with that...what I really wanted to share with you was one of my favorite vintage finds of the winter. This blazer was calling my name for about 2 weeks, why no one snatched it up is beyond me. I finally tried it on! It was a perfect fit. I am a size 6/8 when it comes to jackets and blazers so I knew it was my size...cuz it was in the size 6 section...except for that fact that I was WRONG! First of all it was made in Romania and was obviously 20 or 30 years old.. you could tell by the stitching and lining, but you can imagine my surprise when I saw it was a size 11/12. Actually you don't have to imagine at all, I re-created it for you above haha That's right..I just wanted to show all of you that sizes really don't matter...it's how you feel and how you look. Don't get me wrong..I work my butt off..literally...I eat right and I want to look a certain way...but I would have walked right past this if it had been in the right section, but things happen and it was in the wrong section and I am so happy it was. I am also loving the fact that I found brown, patent leather, peep toe, mary janes? Are you kidding me? And so comfy I might add!

So I thought I would include a Savers Secret in my posts where the majority of my finds are from Savers...and I am kind of excited that a new one is coming to Vegas, you can never have enough! So on to my first Savers Secret...

SAVERS SECRET: ALWAYS  look at a size below and a size above yours. cus well...ya never know! Vintage styles are way smaller than you think and the sizes are twice as big. New styles are often too big and you find yourself going to a smaller size! So there, First Savers SECRET !! Take a A SECOND LOOK  at the sizes, cuz more so than often we think we are bigger than we are. (obviously this will go for any store or thrift store...I just so happen to favor Savers) 

See Savers is the most organized thrifting on earth! color coded, sizes, styles...I will have lots more posts with some tips and secrets to Savers...but I wanted to show you A. Sizes don't matter and B. You can get everything, A vintage jacket, a pencil skirt, new shoes, pearls and lace. The WHOLE outfit is from Savers...ok, not the purse, but the whole outfit yes.


Oh and as promised, I know I have been talking about it for months, I am finally ready for "A Second Look Project" I have been working on it for about a year now and I am so excited to get started!

Anyway, I have to go to bed now and get some much needed rest, to a new day.

Happy Friday everyone!
