Look for Less ~ Tweed Jacket

I know this may be a little out of season, but I was so excited about my recent purchase that I just had to share!  I have been wanting a little cropped tweed jacket forever and have been patiently waiting until I could find one that met my criteria AND was within my budget. So versatile for the fall/winter, they pair easily with a shirt & jeans or with a blouse & skirt.  But, I also think they can work for spring (assuming they are not too bulky) when layered over a tank and dressy shorts.  Some examples of styles I liked:

When I wasn't even looking for it, I came across this during one of my eBay searches.  I was specifically looking for Zara items (because I love that brand) and there it was.  Thankfully, no one else bid on it, so I snatched it up for a very low price.  When it arrived, it was in perfect, like-new condition (it was only worn once for a photo shoot) and fit like a dream.  I am so giddy about this one and will be wearing it to death!  This picture doesn't even do it justice...
Zara cropped metallic tweed jacket - retail $200; bought for $22.95

Details I love: Subtle metallic thread adds a touch of glam, pleating detail on shoulders & waist makes it modern, black chain trim toughens it up.
