Got this vintage fur jacket in Nola for $75, after talking them down from $100.  Maybe it wasn’t a huge bargain, but I couldn’t have been more proud of myself than if won the Nobel Prize – that will never happen, which is why I can make such brash statements.

I wore this on Friday to hang out at a friends’ house and do nothing in particular.  Per usual, F pointed out that I was overdressed and, per usual, I told him to suck it.  We ended up drinking a bunch of wine and  playing Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit (Genus 6, the impossible one).  Despite my limited blogging vocabulary, I rock at Scrabble, fyi.

Scarbble is the best game ever, I guess I just love word games in general because boggle is also pretty amazing.

I need to get a fur coat! They look so cozy.

Great bargaining skills! I really love that coat, it's luxurious & fun all at the same time. I'm usually the overdressed one everywhere too, but I like it haha. & Scrabble, I'm not so good at but Pictionary, I can probably kick your butt πŸ˜‰

That fur is awesome! And I love bargaining others down – it makes me way more proud to wear the piece afterward. And I am ALWAYS overdressed. But that's better than being perpetually underdressed, I suppose.

There is such a thing as overdressed? Anyone who believes that can suck it. Ah ha. And you should be proud of yourself. I'm the worst at bargaining.

love the fur

I don't believe one can ever be overdressed, and I consider it a compliment if someone says I am. You're cut from the same cloth, I see, and I heartily approve. That fur is full-stop glamour, and looks great with your hair! I'm still dying over the shoes, too. πŸ™‚

I can't bargain to save my life… I'm too nice and a huge pushover. It's kinda pathetic and gets me into sticky situations sometimes.
