Yes, That's a US$50 Jacket
Or, if you like to nickel and dime, the jacket is $49.50, to be exact.
I've received many emails from people where I got that jacket from after tweeting that photo.
Don't shoot me (cue eye rolls) but I bought the jacket from teen girl superstore Delia's about two weeks ago. I'm wearing a size medium. Yes, I'm chubby so shut your trap. Haha ;-)
It's not bad isn't it? Especially for a jacket that I would probably wear no more than a few times.
You see, I'm really, really torn about buying clothes.
I like the whole idea of investment dressing, as in, buying expensive designer clothes with quality fabrics and impeccable tailoring and wearing it over and over and over and over and over again until it rips apart.
But I also like the idea of cheap, fast and replaceable fashion. The more clothes the merrier! I mean let's face it, not everyone, especially not me, can afford to drop a couple of grand on a single jacket.
