I want a jean jacket. A cool 1992 style faded jean jacket. One that is maybe a little longer and baggier. I’m convinced that jean jackets are totally back. Regardless, I want one. My mom used to have one. There’s a picture of her in one (Mom, find that pic and send it to me. I also probably should have told you about this request prior to you cleaning out dad’s closet.)
I tell you all of this because today is Thrift Store Day. I live in a big wonderful city, one that each day I am growing to love more and more. I stopped at a designer resale place on my way home. I went in with really low expectations, which is good, because there wasn’t a whole lot going on. I didn’t really need a pair of pointed toe Chanel pumps with an ankle strap.
I went in there with the goal of finding a sweet jean jacket. Good news I found a sweet vintage Calvin Klein jean jacket. Bad news it was $81 doll hairs. I don’t know if you knew, but I don’t have $81 doll hairs to spend on the greatest jean jacket of all time. I also looked on eBay tonight, which is really just the worlds thrift store. I found this. I’m seriously considering purchasing it, because I do have $15 doll hairs to spend on the greatest jean jacket of the 80s.
I would wear it so well. I promise.
Can we talk about why a jean jacket would cost $81? Does that seem astronomically high for denim? That store just marked up denim as high as a baker marks up flour. Which is high, in case you were wondering. Fun fact, this jean jacket from eBay looks like a normal 80s staple, and it is. However, it’s got a nice little bit of detail.
So I’m still jean jacketless. But I’m in the market. So, if you are cleaning out your closet and you happen across a jean jacket that you don’t want anymore please please I beg you. Email me here firstname.lastname@example.org. You won’t regret it and neither will I. You think I might be kidding but I’m not. I would even send you the necessary postage to get that jean jacket from you. So. There’s that.
Chelsie and I made Pterodactyl necks on Skype while I wrote this.
PS: The cookie dough ice cream I’m currently eating is interesting. I think the cookie dough bits are oatmeal raisin flavored.
PPS: I owe you all an explanation. I blogged yesterday at lunch. Wrote the whole thing. And posted it, OR SO I THOUGHT. I looked this morning and apparently it posted to a draft, which is rude, because that was totally NOT a draft. I updated it this morning. I apologize if you were without any bathroom reading material last night.
