i have a question for all of you thrifters out there. do you ever buy something you find at the thrift store simply because of the label? it might not be quite your style or quite your size, but you see that fancy name on the label and you just can't turn away? i'll admit, i sometimes do. and that was the case with this blazer. it was not something i would normally pick out. it is cute, but not totally 'me', you know? there was a big ugly button on it (that i promptly removed after purchasing the blazer and have yet to replace). and it could be tailored to fit me a bit better (which, honestly, who knows if i will ever have done). but when i saw the Armani Collezioni label, i knew i had to buy it. now, i know Armani Collezioni is no Giorgio Armani or Armani Prive, but i do know that it normally sells for way more than i can afford. with a quick check on nordstrom.com, i saw that they are selling blazers with this label for upwards of $1000. i found this one at the thrift store. it was marked $5.99 and i got another 40% off because it was senior discount day and i just happened to be with my mom! score! but the thing is, it has been sitting in my closet, totally forgotten, since i bought it months ago. and this is the first time i have worn it. so perhaps it wasn't such a great score after all...thoughts???
