Coming Up Rose Gold

Remember this jacket? I bought and sold it for a profit back in September. At the time, I was worried it was too flashy. I regretted it a while after being in my current department, and it finally came back, lower than what I originally paid. It was a bit of a stress purchase, but I have no regrets except that my poses obscured the hi-low hem of my tee.

In other news, my home loan fiiiiiinally went through! Behold the power of the forum, lol! Thank you so much to all who commented. We hope to sign this Friday and move next Friday - fingers crossed... 0 _o

    You. Look. Stunning.   Completely rockstar, but in a seemingly effortless way.

    Glad the loan unstuck!

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    Congrats on the loan! I like the jacket. Definitely statement-y, but not over the top, and the shirt in the similar pinky tone really makes it shine (literally).

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    I think I tried to convince you not to sell it the first time - so glad it's back!

  • annagybe replied 5 years ago

    I don't remember the first go around with this jacket, but WOW! This is outstanding! This outfit is awesome! 

    And congrats on the home!

  • ManidipaM replied 5 years ago

    wow, great unexpected pairing with the pink shirt. LOVE this! Dare you to repeat.

    and high five on the home loan (psst! I got one too: just no house to match!)

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations on the loan and the re-purchase. I love the jacket on you!

  • Gigi replied 5 years ago

    Dang. That jacket is unbelievably awesome! WOW.

    The outfit is great...I love the Okalas on you! And congrats on finally getting the loan. What a relief!

  • MsLuna replied 5 years ago

    OMG!!!! Congrats on the home loan Rae!!!! I'm so happy it worked out!!! Isn't YLF pure awesomeness?

    Speaking of pure awesomeness, YOU look like pure awesomeness! That rose gold jacket is fab on you, and obviously you are meant to have it!

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    Love it!!! I'm glad the jacket came back. It's super fab.

    And yay for the home loan! Now on to the joy that is packing.....

  • LACeleste replied 5 years ago

    Balance is restored in the universe!!!  I am very happy about your jacket news Rae!

    I thought that jacket was so gorgeous on you and was perplexed when you sold it.  You inspired me to buy a soft gold metallic leather jacket which is now a favorite.  

    Super loan news too!  Celebrate!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Wow Rae - this is stunning! Love the jacket on you and this entire outfit...a lot!

    And congrats on the loan going through!!! I didn't comment on your other thread as I don't understand the home loan process in the U.S. but I'm so happy that you can now move ahead and get on with things :)

  • Neel replied 5 years ago

    Doing a happy dance for you Rae! :). Great news on the home front. I always loved that jacket on you and was a bit sad you didn't like it. But now you do ... So yay!!!

  • Mochi replied 5 years ago

    I think that's the same jacket I had told you never to sell. Glad it came back to you. Now never ever sell that jacket again, you hear?

  • deb replied 5 years ago

    The loan gods heard us. Great look on you!

  • replied 5 years ago

    Yay for the jacket coming back, and congrats on the loan coming through!

  • crutcher replied 5 years ago

    The jacket is TDF...I love the look with the Okalas and jeans...Really, good things may venture away but they do return..jacket, and house business...So glad all has worked out for you..From your posted picture you seem lighter and happier and ready for whatever comes back to

  • UmmLila replied 5 years ago

    I bought that jacket (or one very like it) from outnet last fall and sent it back because it was too small, and did not get a larger size because my daughter insisted it was too flashy. Seeing it on you makes me regret I didn't persist!

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    Yay!  Very happy for you two!  I loved this jacket on you before and I love it now - beautiful with that tee and jeans and the okalas, just wow!

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    Squeeeee!  So glad things went well with the house!!!  Totally hoping for new house pictures. :D

    You look terrific. That rose gold is lovely on you!

  • columbine(erin) replied 5 years ago

    You are lovely in pink! I hope the move goes well. 

  • shedev replied 5 years ago

    The jacket and top are sublime together. So happy the loan went thru. Congatulations

  • cciele replied 5 years ago

    It's back! I remember thinking I didn't like the color on you, but in the sunlight in these photos it looks different from what I remember -- I love it!
    And congrats on the loan!

  • Parsley replied 5 years ago

    That is on seriously cool jacket!
    Doing a happy dance for your home loan finally coming through!
    Yay for owning your own place! Hopefully the satisfaction will greatly outweigh all the trouble that getting the details sorted caused you.

  • replied 5 years ago

    My goodness do I like this! I remember seeing this jacket at the meet-up, but since it 'came back to you' I guess it was meant to be. How does it feel to wear it? Do you feel too conspicuous like before, or are you able to relax and just own it? I love it with this relatively simple outfit. You look amazing, truly! You have this rose gold glow about you. ;)

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Hilarious. I was so in favour of you keeping the jacket the first time round. I'm glad it found its way back to you. 

    Killer look.
