As I was skimming the racks at Salvation Army the other day, this belted sleeveless jacket caught my eye, first because of its rich green color, and second because of its woolly texture. Turns out, it’s a wool/cashmere blend, a lovely combo that gives the jacket a soft, cozy feel.
The jacket was made in Canada by one of its leading fashion designers, Joseph Ribkoff, and although it’s a little big on me, I snagged it anyway, thinking I’ll probably wear it over heavier winter clothing. Plus, it was only six bucks. (I also bought an Anne Klein raincoat with a detachable hood — been on the hunt for a hooded raincoat for a while now — for just 10 bucks, a total steal.)
I intentionally paired my new sleeveless jacket with black boots to enhance the elfin look. I reckon a Santa hat would have driven the look right home, but I’m not one to go overboard.
So, to get back to my original question, do I look like an elf?
