I've been having too much fun with photoshop :] But this picture really portrays how this outfit makes me feel. I feel sort of badass, all kinds of fabulous and very excited to have finally have found a blazer that fits me like I want it too. I've been in need of a blazer with a vintage 1980's boyfriend fit. I thought I would find one at a thrift store but no luck. I looked at vintage shops online and I did find a few but they were over priced and there is always that possibility of it not fitting like you want it to. Then I found this! JCPenny seems to have a bad reputation. Not classy, not chic, too cheap? Bullshit. Except for the too cheap part. But my blog is called Poorly Fashioned after all... . I love this place. You have to search a lot but they are very up to date with trends and there is never a day when there isn't a sale. Things are never ever full price. You have to look in the woman's department. Juniors is a total joke. This blazer is perfect. Not to heavy, perfect fit. But here is the trick... Its a size 12. This size was just the right length and right amount of baggy and came with shoulder pads and all. It might as well be vintage. Finds and tricks like this is why I love fashion and why I don't mind being on a budget. The day I went they had all their fall stuff on 60% off! This cost me, $22.

These two things I also got from JCPenny. Once again I went big on the sizes. This tank top is an XL but fits just like a tank dress. It will be perfect for summer. I'm planning on wearing it with strapless bra-like things like the one above. I need to buy more! The tank top was $3!!!!!!! These pants... man I love these pants! They remind me A LOT of these American Apparel pants
that I almost bought online the other day. Thank god I didn't. Once again, there is a great chance the fit might be weird, especially with these hips. These JCPenny pants cost me $15 and fit like they were made especially for me. The bagginess doesn't accentuate my hips, it actually makes them look slimmer! And mannn are they comfortable. I cannot wait to wear them!

This post is titled Palo Alto because that is the name of the movie I'm watching right now. Its greatttt! You should check it out. Indie, funny and sort of romantic.
