look book: one in a vermillion

March 3, 2011

Did you know that vermillion means "of a vivid red to reddish-orange color?" Well, apparently it does, and when I looked up the word in the dictionary this jacket was staring right back at me. I found this blazer the same day I found the Ralph Lauren one. It was $6 bucks of awesome and real wool too! If I didn't believe in the magic of thrift stores before, I do now! This jacket is one in a vermillion! {hehe sorry couldn't help myself!}
jacket and belt thrifted, dress {as a top} and skirt J. Crew, tights Target, purse c/o Spotted Moth, Doctor Doctor Bag necklace IHOD

And in case you were wondering, the photos haven't been edited. The jacket really IS that bright! 
 
Have a great day everyone! Enter the Shabby Apple giveaway if you haven't already!

  31. I'm hyper-obsessed with that white dress that you wore as a top -- it might even be distracting me from that stunning jacket! And you look so much like Mandy Moore in that second photo; it's insane.
