Sometimes, the most basic pieces are the hardest to find.  Like a denim jacket, for example.  I’ve wanted one for a while, but I’m just not willing to pay $40+ for something I know I can find at a thrift store.  However, finding it at a thrift store in my size and a current style is not always the easiest task.  So, I over-think it, and wait, and regret not buying one, and then go back again – shampoo, rinse, repeat.

Finally, I decided on one a few weeks ago; and, I like it.  But, I don’t LOVE it.  It’s a Guess jacket, so it has that going for it, but it’s a little too big and not the exact wash I wanted.  Plus, it was $7 at the thrift store, and since I regularly pay $7 for brand new clothes (albeit, not Guess clothes), I felt like I was getting a little ripped off.

But, at least I now have a jacket to tide me over until/unless I find the perfect one.  And really, for all of my griping, it is pretty cute.

DSC_1220Do you have problems with basic pieces, too?  Do denim jackets and white shirts and black heels give you trouble, or is it just me?
