Rare Saturday Post

Ok, I know I don't normally post on Saturdays, but I'm having a "Holy Crap" moment.

My husband randomly said "Let's go to the thrift store". That alone was the shock of my day, he hates shopping, until I got to the store and found this really cute coat when I first walked in. I was bummed to see a "EXPRESS (already not usually my size) 7/8" on the label, but I wanted to try it on anyway thinking "One day, it might work". Well, guess what?



It totally fits. :) *happy dance*

I can't even imagine what that would be like. I was just telling my husband this morning, "One day honey...I'm going to walk into a thrift store and buy things and they'll FIT!"

Beautiful! Love the coat. Is that suede?

I'm the opposite way when it come to thrift store shopping the Boyfriend loves it and I don't. I always tell him, "I don't want to buy other people's used crap."

But if it looked like that coat, I'd be tempted!
