In November of 2017 I took a trip to the North Carolina mountains with my very best friends. We all love adventures and we all love shopping. When taking a detour to Nordstrom was mentioned my friend Alyssa and I heard the gates of heaven open and a choir of angels sing their blessings upon us. Nordstrom is the Mecca of affordable fashion. I immediately knew exactly what I HAD to purchase. Rachel Parcel of Pink Peonies blog talked about a black leather jacket with GOLD – YES, GOLD, hardware that was less than $100. I had been dreaming of that jacket. I checked the availability at the store we were going to and behold, it was in stock. My heart raced.
We finally got to the store and I spent a while gawking at the Jimmy Choo pumps and Tory Burch handbags and grabbed the infamous cup of coffee and set on my adventure to find THE jacket. I raced upstairs to the BlankNYC section – y’all. They had so many colors – but do you think they had my black with gold hardware? NOPE. It was fine. Totally fine. I kept perusing, praying, “God let me be okay with not finding this jacket if it’s Your will.” Then, a lovely, sweet, angelic Nordstrom employee asked if I was looking for something in particular. Why, yes, yes I was.
SHE FOUND THE JACKET.
THE LAST ONE.
IN MY SIZE.
I took the jacket, along with
a few several other items to the dressing room. I literally sat in the Nordstrom dressing room and cried – over a jacket. It is the most magical, beautiful, well made jacket I have ever put on my body. The gold is just so glam and the fit is perfect. Needless to say, if you’re looking for a jacket that will make you feel like a TOTAL BOSS get this one!
