I left the antique fair without this

Thankfully I circled back to get this men’s battledress jacket.

Note the date sewn into the inside.

It’s so much more hardcore than the pretty little sequin sweater and razzle-dazzle-y jacket I also got that day.

I would obsess and obsess for weeks (months? years?) if I didn’t go back to get it. Are you like that? Please tell me I’m not alone.

    yes, i’m like that too. i have things i did not get, or got rid of, that i sometimes get so upset about! & i have so many fabulous things, but those ones that got away are haunting. i think if it hits you in the right way, just get it. hence my huge wardrobe, which is amazing~!
