let us go then, you and I, when the evening is spread out against the sky

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.

Better to be over dressed than under dressed! Well done on the coat, I'm terrible at bargaining!

What Was I Thinking? said...

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 ;)

Christen said...

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.

Clare said...

This outfit looks so cozy!

FabBlab said...

Susan said...

you look lovely, dear!

Kristin said...

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.

Steffani Alix said...

love the fur

Julia said...

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. :)

J-Diggety said...

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.

Overdressed, schmoverdressed! Rock it girl!
