Blazer with Sleeveless Trench


During my trip to Arizona, I stopped by my favorite consignment shop in Scottsdale. My Sister's Closet is a great place to find designer names at really reasonable prices. I spent a couple hours there on Friday and came away with three fantastic purchases. I'm actually wearing all three things in this outfit post.

The army green blazer is by Vince(one of my favorite brands!)and it was $17.46. What a steal! The sleeveless trench was a last minute snag. The store is huge and it was really hard to get to every single rack. But I was walking to the dressing room and I saw this trench and squealed with glee. I've been looking for a long vest and I think this sleeveless trench is perfect for the look I've been wanting to create. It's by Calvin Klein and it was a whopping $17.50!

Now onto the bag. I pulled three different cognac bags and made myself decide on only one. I am having serious regret about walking away from the amazing Michael Kors bag I found. But I went for this gorgeous J. Crew bag instead. It's way more practical. I will carry it every day. It's convertible, so I can wear in as a shoulder bag or cross-body bag. And the color is gorgeous. It was $49. A bit pricey for second-hand but the quality is stunning. Like it was never used. So, I was happy to pay that.

I could have bought more but was really proud of myself for being a more discerning shopper. I guess I'm learning. Just because the prices are fab doesn't mean I'll have a place for it in my closet.

The color of that bag is delish! Not sure why but I love that hue in leather.

Love all 3 pieces Tracy! I agree $49 is a lot for a second-hand bag, but it is gorgeous and looks like it's in excellent condition.

Tracy, these are great items and they reflect your style well. I like how you layered the jacket under the vest. One of my shopping tricks is to set a budget before I leave the house. Then, when I find an item I like, I decide how much I think it's worth before checking the price tag. If the actual price is higher, back it goes!

This might be one of the first sleeveless trenches that I have ever seen, and you pulled it off effortlessly.

Fabulous, Tracy! I love how you wore the sleeveless trench and that bag?! Cognac leather is one of my favorite colors for an everyday bag. It goes with everthing! And, I'm beyond flattered that you added my blog to your blog love list! xo www.casualglamorous.com

You're right that cognac bag is amazing and even though $49 is a bit high for consignment, as pricey as J Crew is these days, if it was practically brand new, and as much as you'll wear it, it was still a steal in my book :)
AND that sleeveless trench? Shut up, you are making me drool - love love love it!!!
