Joe’s mom gave me a giftcard for my birthday, and I haven’t had the chance to use it until now. I was looking for a faux leather bomber, because I’ve been on the search for one that I like for a few years (I’m picky about where jackets hit me).
I ended up finding two dress (one is the navy version my new bud Lisa wore to our meetup!), and something else that really surprised me.
I never thought I’d tell the story that I’m about to tell you. It shocks me as much as I am sure it will shock you.
I arrived in Macy’s, in the Juniors department, ready to try on some of the faux leather jackets I knew would be there. But my attention immediately turned to the sequined jacket in the Material Girl section.
Oh yes, you heard me right. I tried on stuff from Madonna’s collection. And the worst part? I loved the jacket.
I’m slightly ashamed.
But the jacket? Kind of amazing. It hits me at just the place I was looking for, and although it’s not faux leather, it’s 100% polyester and sequins, which means I’ll look like it’s 1989 for years to come.
I can totally wear a sequined jacket to work, right? I mean, no one is going to think I’ve lost my mind for wearing it?
Ok, fine. Maybe I won’t wear it to work. But I’m wearing it to sleep it. I’m in love with the sequins.
