It's still winter so I'm cramming velvet and sparkle into my recent ensembles to get it all out of my system in preparation for spring. Something strikes me as "Upper East Side" about this blazer, though you wouldn't know it from the price tag. In fact, this blazer is one of the spoils of a fruitful thrifting expedition made with Megan and Sarah over the holidays. We checked out Unique Thrift in Falls Church, which I've been hearing about for ages, but had never been to. For some reason, I had pictured it as a mass free-for-all and prepared myself to spend the afternoon rummaging through piles of questionable clothes. In reality, I found it to be very organized and I was hard-pressed to find holes or stains on the majority of the clothing (not the norm for most of my thrifting). I recommend all of you local readers check it out if you haven't already!
