Favorite Thing(s) This Week!
So I mentioned that I’ve been looking for a varsity/letterman jacket, which has been pretty difficult. Not that there aren’t jackets to be found, they’re just all a men’s XXL or in really bad condition, or like, $150.00. A couple of weeks ago, I was foraging around in Value Village and decided to check out the children’s section. In the boys’ jackets rack I found this little doozy, which fits me perfectly (it’s not REALLY a full-out letterman jacket, but super, wicked nonetheless):
I don’t think it’s a boy’s jacket… I just think the dude who owned it was a small dude. But COME ON – Acadia Axemen? With the patch of the hooded axeman on the front? WICKED-cool. To make it even BETTER, when I looked in the pocket before throwing it in the wash, I found an original receipt from 1979. Like, WHAAA? Awesome.
Anyhoo, I also stopped by a vintage sale this Saturday and met Shawn (I think that’s the spelling??) who used to buy for the Black Market. She was selling some amazing stuff, but I only had $40 bucks on me, so I had to settle for my favorites.
I will say that I almost plotzzed when I saw the Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band t-shirt. It has a big funky stain on the front, but I’ll see if the Shout can make short work of it. If not, I’m turning that bad boy into a crop-top.
Ummmmm how cool are these shoes? SO COOL. That’s how cool.
Sigh. I need to stop. My closet is busting at the seams.
