Welcome to the first bits of the LONG WEEKEND! I have a weekend full of friends and drywalling. Yes, you read that right. On Monday, I am helping my sister at her new house. It is coming along nicely and I will have lots of pictures for you next week.

This week, we are shifting gears.

You may be asking yourself, “What on earth does Jessica know about fashion?” And you are correct in asking that.

This one has enough fashion sense for the two of us:

DSCN1108But this past weekend, after declaring my love for the song Thriftshop, my friend Lindsay told me that we were going to go thrifting.

And thrift we did!

We shut down the place and then went for coffee to celebrate our achievements. And then we shut down that place. (What? We love to talk).

Anyways, I thought I would show you all the magnificent finds I sniffed out. And because I will never be a beautiful blonde who has people dying to take a photograph of me lolling about in gorgeous clothing, I took some quick snapshots from my computer last night after arriving home from the gym, sweat crusted and exhausted. Almost the same thing.

First. I bought a calfskin leather Longchamp wallet which will go perfectly with my bag that I snapped up in Paris in 2011.

Second – a tweet Parasuco blazer.

You say running from the computer to get in the frame - I say art.

And finally, the steal of the night. A tailored wool blazer with a REAL FUR collar and a matching skirt. Quite MadMenesque. [Also, the irony that I work for an environmental journal has not escaped me...maybe NOT a work blazer.]


Honestly, this post is so many things wrapped into one: a tour of my house, a glimpse into my closet and a display of my modelling talent. Long weekend style.

So now that I have kick started it – go enjoy it!

What are you doing for the long weekend?

Are you a thrifter? If so, what is your latest treasure?
