from the ritz to the rubble

There's a story behind this denim jacket that most of my friends already know and is tired of knowing over and over again. This was my first ever purchase on eBay as I could not take my eyes off of this denim jacket going only for $6 ! I ended up winning the item, however was blasted with bad news that the sender could not mail it to me as the postage was more than what it should have cost. My heart sank a little when she said she would do a refund, but also gave me an alternative option to do a pick up. I was a bit hesitant at the thought of meeting someone online just to pick up a garment however, my love for this jacket had been too deep that I could not say no. It was also a bonus that we both lived in the same city and knew the same area which made the exchange an easy task. The best thing to come out of it was the refund of my postage and only to end up paying $6 for a good conditioned item.
I wore this out for college today battling through the coldness and rain. I was also feeling a tad lazy and did not want to change out of my clothes for a friends birthday dinner so I casually waltz my way into a Japanese restaurant looking under dress.
