jacket junkie....


I can't help shopping jackets and think, oh that would be good on this or that day of weather, or that would be a good color for wearing this or that color to work etc... and especially a good sale and Quiksilver.  My goto style for shopping jackets is usually the Quiksilver and Billabong stores on Time Square NYC. I don't know why, I guess having grown up here in the midwest in OKC I'v always like the California style be it skater/snowboarder/outdoorsy... alas! I like that it's a good durable quality with basic looks.  The above black/camo jacket is $69, 20% off this weekend with the code PRES20 which makes it about $56 ( I can't get the black/camo one, but have tried emailing my buddy S here in OKC. He's SO thrifty though, he doesn't go much for sales unless it's 50% more off of an already sale price. ha). But I don't guess I need anything that heavyweight here in OKC.  I did finally break down and get the graphic  printed jacket above. I just like the retro print ;you might think it's the dorkiest gayest thing you've seen, but I'm going to get a kick out of wearing it for fall weather seasons to come. :P Unluckily it's not on sale, but with the promo code PRES20 (Valentine weekend only) I got 20% off of the $99 price.... I've been checking the website back and forth since last fall for it to get marked down or out of stock, and nope same price, and apparently I got the last L as there are none more listed. SO anyway, below are some very nice lined light weight hooded jackets with water resistant ripstop nylon shell, a zip pocket inside which I'm a sucker for that sort of detail, including the velcro on the wrists of the sleeves. They were $100 on sale for $50 and with the 20% off, $40!!! So I've been sitting around all day trying not to buy anything, I can't decided between the Orange or the Green, or both!!! :) Oh the outfits these might be combined with, what possibilities! (Quiksilver always free shipping btw)

Get the orange. That's sexy.

The one you bought is cute in a fun/nostalgic sort of way.
