trash bag blazers

As annoyingly overrated and overexposed Urban Outfitters is, it has some pretty fantastic stuff when you dig deep. I will admit that I love it. I stopped in today and picked up some marvelous sales. 

The first thing I found was this- I had no idea what it was made out of but it looked pretty freaking cool. I learned later it was 'linen with a clear finish'. It's so much cooler than all the blazers I have (which, given, is about 2) and doesn't break off the circulation of my arms like my other UO blazer (seriously, I got the larger size and it was as tight, if not tighter, than the smaller. But anyways.) This was $20 marked down from $78. Even if I hated the thing, that's a good deal.


The next thing is this denim vest, a pathetic attempt at being as cool as vintage Levi's ones like Tavi's. I don't really like it as it is right now, I plan on bleaching it and making it a little rougher with sandpaper (which is bringing back terrible memories of me as an 8 year old trying to "customize" my jeans) This was $10 from $58!


I'll probably be doing the bleach-and-shred to the vest in like, an hour. I'm anxious. So there will be an update soon.

Edit: For the one time in my life I need it, we don't even have bleach in the house. 

And keep asking questions. Thankyaverymuch.
