Banana Republic for Under $5!

I decided to check out a thrift store I’d spotted around the corner from my office while at lunch today.  I’m glad I did, because I found this beauty just sitting on a rack waiting for me to find it!


I loved the bright color and the short sleeves because summer is finally making an appearance here in mainland Alaska, albeit slowly.  I about swooned when I saw the price tag of $4.50!  Seriously?  There were no rips, tears or snags anywhere that would justify that price, but I wasn’t about to look a gift horse in the mouth.

I continued browsing hoping to find another super sweet deal and spotted a cute little Uncle Sam figure for $3.  I won’t share him now since he is very likely to show up in my patriotic decor change over this weekend!  All together I walked out of the store for $7.50!  You just can’t beat that.  I would have paid that total for the jacket alone!

When I got home this evening I tested it out with a favorite layering piece.  Of course it’s just adorable!  Even with wrinkles!  I love that it’s versatile too.  I can see pairing it with jeans, black or grey slacks or even brown pants. I might have to try it out with a cute little dress I bought while in San Diego recently too!


So that’s my bargain score for the week.  I’m pretty happy about it and will be enjoying it’s little details for a while! Including this awesome texture on texture look!  🙂
