velvet blazer + cheapie finds

The weather is officially UG today... although I suppose I am happy about the cold temperatures as opposed to the sweltering mess of yesterday.  At least the chilly wind called for the premier of the J.Crew velvet blazer I purchased two months ago (admittedly overzealous for Fall, yes, I know).  Of course now its on sale.  Foo-ey.

The sweater shell (it is short-sleeved) was a major score at Target two years ago - its by Merona and the cable knit is nice and thick - much more expensive looking and feeling than the $12 I'm betting I paid for it. I'm noticing a little fading on it but its held up extremely well over the years.

These BCBGirls shoes are also about two years old - another cheapie find off eBay.  And now that Mr. Weitzman and Mr. Louboutin have made the platform pump standard office fare, I'm trotting these out more and more often.
