Private Mac

I’ve been looking to add an authentic army jacket to my closet for years, but I refused to dish out major bucks at the Army Surplus store.  Luckily, a few months ago I came across this beauty at the thrift store.

It was just hanging there…waiting for me.  And the bonus was it was only $ 4.00! Can you believe that price?

Did I mention how much I love this purse? I’m carrying art work on my arm!

Next on my wish list is to find some decorative navy pins to go with my navy pea coat for the winter.

What I Wore
Dress as skirt- Target
Army Jacket- Thrift
Shirt- Jcpenney
Sandals - Target
Purse- Susej Designs
Watch- Michael Kors
Bangles- Thrift, Forever 21
