A Jacket I Can’t Possess

I haven’t done this in a while, posted a picture of an article of clothing I can’t afford. For those who don’t know, I’m a poor person who lucked out and got a rent stabilized apartment in a very wealthy neighborhood in New York City. Every day I pass by stores filled with beautiful things I’d never be able to afford to buy. Honestly, I’m fine with that, even if I had money there simply isn’t a lot I’d want to buy. Also, a lot of the clothes I see would not look good on me. But this jacket is cute and I think I’d look great in it!

  1. Phone home, Stacy! If you’d look good in that, you’d look good in anything! Get out of the city for a spell?

  2. I’ve seen pictures of you and am pretty sure you look great in everything!
    I do kind of like this jacket too, I must admit. Did you see what it cost? I’m almost afraid to know…

  3. Thank you both for the compliments! CR, I went back today to see how much the jacket cost. It’s not bad compared to the cost of most stuff around here, $328. But it was a very thin cotton, little more than a shirt really, making it even more extravagant.
