Plaid Princess

When my life gets crazy (good, bad or in between) I tend to take it out on my style. Let's just say the stretchy black pants get a lot of rotation. And you know what? That is unacceptable. Especially when you take into account how good a fab outfit makes me feel. You just can't saunter around in leggings the way you do in perfect dress. And you can't beat the confidence found in your favorite leather jacket. That confidence doesn't exist in a slouchy sweater, laws of nature people

The Pom Pom Jacket

When you enjoy shopping as much as I do, you learn real quick that bargain hunting is the only means for survival. My friends love to give me a hard time about the "excessive" amount of clothing I have. I mean, excessive? How can something I need for everyday of my life be had in excess? But, I always leave them eating their words with my closet version of The Price is Right. It's almost impossible to argue when something is $20 or 80% off. 

This jacket, is not one of those things. I didn't even get it slightly on sale. I walked into H&M, fell and love, and took this full-priced beauty straight to the checkout. Because while bargains are great, style has to be a balance. And I say if you find something that hits all your check points (which for me is uniqueness and versatility) then I say BUY IT. Life is too short to be haunted by all the great things you didn't buy, right?

And lets be real, this jacket is fabulous and I regret nothing. I mean it has little puff-ball pom-poms all over it.
