Varsity Jacket: Vintage (eBay)
Embellished Sweater: Forever21
Boyfriend Jeans: American Eagle (similar here)
Slip-on Sneakers: Vans (here)
I know what you're thinking. Vintage shopping on eBay? Really?! It seems like the last place one would think of for vintage finds but believe it or not I scored this dime piece from the wonderful sphere of domestic e-commerce. I had been looking for a vintage letterman/varsity jacket such as this one for ages and the particular style I wanted (pictured above) is better designed for men in which department I needed a small or even XS. Finding one in stores felt like an impossible task and when I did come across one that I liked they were ridiculously over-priced (coveted item it seems). Which lead me to extend my endless hunt for the dammed jacket through the world-wide web, more specifically: eBay. At times it might seem like you're scrolling for way too before you actually find something worth clicking on but the results can be rewarding, I promise! It's all about using key words and most definitely that "Refine Results" tool.
I hope this post inspires you all to look for things in unexpected places. Whether it be that vintage leather jacket you've been dying to get your hands on but refuse to pay $300.00+ or the materials for your next DIY project at your local $0.99!
