Today's OOTD was inspired by this incredible leather jacket that I got for FREE earlier this week. It was actually the nicest thing ever -- I was buying a girl's clothes at my work on Wednesday, and she had the CUTEST stuff ever, including a few designer items. I unfortunately had to pass on some of her things due to some minor wear and tear (including this fabulous jacket), but she still made quite a bit of money for the things I could take (which was almost everything she brought in). After I paid her out I was telling her how much I loved her stuff, and she told me I could have my pick of the rest of it for free since she was just going to throw the it all away! I ended up taking this ah-mazing jacket and some Michael Kors jeans (hello), both of which I couldn't believe she was giving up. She was honestly the nicest girl ever and I hope she brings even more of her fabulous wardrobe in to my store soon.
Anyway, I've been looking for a new jacket that is classy with a bit of an edge for a few weeks now. As soon as I saw this jacket I knew it was perfect, so I was disappointed when I noticed some wear on the side panels, but I was so happy when the girl told me I could keep it! I've also been in love with this Forever 21 top since I found it at my store a few weeks ago, and I had noticed how perfectly this SLATE statement necklace from Rocksbox looks with monochrome pieces, so I knew I had a killer outfit in the making. To keep the look from going too formal, I threw on some distressed denim and my favorite rustic ankle booties. I also added on this Margaret Elizabeth bangle (also from Rocksbox) to add even more shine to my overall look.
Overall I am obsessed with today's look, which I'll be wearing for dinner and drinks with some friends after work, and I can't wait to create even more amazing outfits with this jacket and my current Rocksbox set!
