Thrifty Thursday – Purple Swing Jacket

Today is Thrifty Thursday and I’m so excited about this purple swing jacket! Can we say, so 1980’s?! This jacket is a true throwback and a love it! I can’t believe I almost missed out on all it’s fabulousness! Yep, I almost passed it up. While thrifting at the 2nd Avenue in Laurel, MD awhile back, I came across the gorgeous jacket. I glanced at the tag and realized that it was a size Medium. I rolled my eyes and threw a brief tantrum, lol, and put it back. But the hubby kept telling me to go back and try it on. That was the best decision he made that day because…it fit! :-)

Thrifty Thursday TipIf you come across a vintage item while thrifting and you notice the item reads smaller than your normal size, try it on anyway. At times, vintage items can be cut smaller (or larger). While this happens in regular stores too, I find it more common while thrifting. I have countless vintage items in my closet ranging from sizes 12-20 and M-XXL so, this holds true for me more often than not.



So tell me, are you feeling this purple sing jacket?! I think after wearing this outfit, purple quickly became one of my favorite colors to wear. What color(s) are your favorites to wear? Let me know! Until tomorrow, be blessed and be safe. XO!
