i got: A Jacket by Etro

A jacket from Etro

One of my amazing consignment finds. 50 bucks! Retail value at the time, $1595 (the original price tag was in the pocket). It’s a beautiful jacket that MJ kept pestering me to buy when it was priced higher. I’m not sure what season it’s from. If anyone can place it, let me know in the comments.

This picture was taken in Montreal in my hotel room at the Armor Manoir Sherbrooke. I loved the look of the photo so I needed an excuse to use the image in a blog post.
