“Rock Star’s Girlfriend”

Posted on: December 5, 2012

The very first time I wore this my 12 year old son took one look at me and exclaimed, “You look like a rock star’s girlfriend!”.  I wish everyone had a child like my Connor in their life….He is so good for my soul.  I always would tell the children “God said I bless you and gave me (their name).  I will never forget the day I said this and my third child who was about 10 at the time said, “And he saved the best for last”.   Such an unusual statement from one brother of his younger brother and a moment I will forever cherish.

Now, as for this jacket, I literally stalked it for months.  I love animal print and fell hard for this at first sight.  Being a woman who likes a bargain, I only hesitated in buying it immediately because I wanted a good deal.  Before anyone asks where I got it, I apologize, but it is no longer available….

I found it on the Metrostyle website and waited for a holiday when they e-mail me special discount codes and as soon as one came I ordered it right away.  It was worth the wait and is a favorite that makes me smile every time I wear it or even just see it in my closet.

Does anyone else love zebra print?  I now own zebra print:

v-neck t-shirt

Slingback Heels

Scarf

Belt

I think that is enough and I will not buy any more in this print.  I have to have some limits for my animal prints or they could take over.   One of my life codes is “Everything in moderation, Balance, anything in excess is not healthy!” 

Gratitude:  I am grateful to my friend for taking me thrifting today and the fun we always have.  I am grateful for the growth and maturity of my adult children.  I am grateful for the new Weight Watcher 360 program and the concentration on all aspects of weight loss of mind, body, soul…

You are a rock star! You really look great in this jacket and I love it paired with the yellow. Zebra is a fun alternative to leopard. Super cute!

Thank you and yes zebra is a fun way to wear animal print. The first time I paired this with a bright orange, matching the intensity of this yellow.

I love zebra print! And you look like a rock star!! Love the yellow with the zebra!

How was your thrifting ventrue? I wen in search of bohemian style clothing for single mother friend of mine who I am trying to help out…. It was fun to look for things I wouldn’t wear but can admire…
