OOTD: A holiday folly.

It's no secret that Groupon had a fantastic deal last week for $25 for $50 at Nordstrom Rack. "Great!", I thought. "Perfect for holiday shopping!" Ummm... yeah... about that.

I tried, readers. I really tried to find those holiday gifts. But none were to be found that would be good enough for my gift-recipients. I thought all was lost for said gift-certificate, until I spotted this little pretty in the racks. The Nanette Lepore Maddalena jacket seems to be sold out almost everywhere (might be from Fall '09?), and I remember this on Nordie's site a while back. Unfortunately, $500 is out of my budget for a blazer, but when it's on sale for $199 + $50 off? Yes, please. And I'm pleased (and a little shocked) to announce that this is my first ever Nanette purchase. I say shocked because I really don't know why I haven't bought something sooner...

Jacket: Nanette Lepore Maddelena Jacket
Top: Robbi + Nikki silk tank
Jeans: J Brand Lovestory jeans
Belt: Anthropologie Tea Rose belt
Shoes: Go Jane faux suede bow peeps

I took off the grosgrain belt that came with it and opted for something more fun, like this big rosebud belt. It just seemed to work better, and I'm just thinking about getting rid of the belt that came with it. And check out the back of this thing... I'm a bit in love! 

Now to finish that holiday shopping...

  3. That is the long sleeved version of my Collette jackets! Lovely and great find.

  4. Love the jacket! And that was a good deal!

  5. love that jacket!!! Definitely worth the price. Great idea pairing it with the rosette belt. I also bought the Rack groupon and was planning to buy gifts, but ended up using it on myself.

  6. You look awesome Justine!! I love that jacket - the back is to die for!
