Boxy in Black

Sunday, March 3, 2013

Did you know that Target and The Goodwill have been partnering for years? Target donates their old/overstock merchandise to Goodwill stores around the US. I found this blazer at a Goodwill a couple weeks ago, when I was out thrifting with my mom. I found 4 other Target originals as well! The blazer is a tad bit too big, but since exaggerated silhouettes are in for spring, I decided to buy it anyways. It's a great little cropped jacket, and hits right above my hips, which is the most desirable length for my height. I also decided to debut my new Steve Madden pumps today! I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I have been on a serious hunt for some strappy heels for the past 6 months. I found these amazing patent leather heels at Nordstrom, and I was able to use a gift card for them, major score! Do you ever go on "hunts" for specific items? I feel like once it's in my head, I can't get it out until I find it! Oddly enough, the trip that I found this blazer on, my baby sister got a hair up her behind to find a pair of thin hoop earrings. She seriously made my mom and I look at 5 different stores until she found them. She's 11... oh we really shouldn't indulge her. Guess it runs in the family.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for rookie blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

Lovely shoes. They really stood out for me. The whole outfit looks great though. A fabulous mix of textures that makes an all-in-black really interesting. Nice one!

I LOVE this outfit!

That blazer is fantastic with that skirt!
