Last week, I found a few tiny items by Theory, but this is the only one I ended up getting. I’m obsessed with jackets, so when I find one that’s short, cropped, and fitted, I just can’t help myself.
Here’s the Theory Caprine jacket in size 00:
Belt: Vintage snakeskin belt (holes added)
I was able to get the jacket at a pretty good discount using the pre-sale option for the Bloomingdales Private Sale last week. The jacket was 15% off, plus I got $25 off for every $100, and an extra 10% off for opening a Bloomingdales credit card. Not too bad.
There’s been some interest in the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mini over at Diary of a Shopper, so I wanted to take this opportunity to give her a little camera time. She’s the itty bitty version of the famous Morning After Bag, which is way too big and chunky for me to carry. Even the MAB Mini is a bit too big, so when Rebecca Minkoff came out with the Mini Mini, I was really excited to finally find a perfectly sized version of such a cool handbag. More after the jump!
Back to the Caprine jacket. It is a light weight, unlined linen blend, which makes it a great spring and summer jacket. It is a military inspired style, single breasted, with three functional pockets, and a waist tie. The sleeves are bracelet length, which make them a little short for me at full length, but I like them pushed up anyways. The size 00 fits me perfectly, and the style is different than anything else I have in my closet, so picking it up was a no-brainer.
I styled it with a vintage belt, but here it is with the tie it came with.
Now for a little jewelry tip: turquoise and coral look really great together. The necklace and the pendent came from two completely different places, and my mom suggested I put them together. Once I did, I can’t wear these pieces any other way. It’s my favorite spring and summer time necklace.
