Check this blazer.
It's navy. It's 100% wool. It's Ralph Lauren. It fits perfectly. It's $12.99.
And I left it behind.
I can tell you the exact reasons why I didn't buy it.
First of all, I had given myself a budget. I was really hoping to actually stick to it and between a floral silk blazer (what up!) and a blazer I found for a friend who I am giving a thrift wardrobe make-over to (be excited for that... I'll blog it), I was getting close to the max. Secondly, I already have two wool Ralph Lauren blazers and I have a really similar jacket in red as well. I need to watch out because I seem to be on a mission to collect all the blazers in the whole wide world... of thrifting.
And so, I left the jacket behind.
And I'll get over it, but I'm not going to lie, right now I'm kinda regretting leaving it behind. I could wear it with boyfriend jeans. I could wear it with my green dress slacks. I could wear it with a red pencil skirt.... Maybe it'll still be there next time and then I know it was meant to be. Probably not though. That's the thing with the thrift store, you gotta get it or it's gone...
What's your greatest thrift store regret? What have you left behind?
