Cargo Safari Jacket and Urban Outfitters Finds

I went downtown yesterday on some business and decided to do some browsing as well. I wandered into UO not expecting to find anything, but when I got upstairs they had a decent sized sale section. I found 3 things (all in small and zero, yay!) and went to the fitting room to try them on.

The fitting room was huge! Haha :) It was pretty much 3/4 the size of my room...

I took advantage of the giant mirror by taking some outfit shots!

Here, I'm wearing this cargo 'safari' jacket I got last year off when it was on sale. It is MakMaks/Cocostar brand. Most everything I buy off Yesstyle is this brand because I find the sleeves are longer compared to other brands from Asia. I love this jacket because it's oversized and has giant pockets which I can stuff everything into. The sleeves are also cuffed at the end adding extra length. It also has a generously sized hood great for Vancouver rain. The beige colour in the stock pics is the one I'm wearing. It's actually more like a khaki/tan colour.

Inside I'm wearing an H&M Sweater and a belt that came with a Dynamite romper. Again with my trusty MBMJ Bag.

I ended up purchasing all three things that I tried on: 2 fringe tanks and a high waisted long skirt.

I wasn't wearing suitable bottoms with the fringe tanks so I had to tuck them into the skirt. Shame you can't see it cuz it's really cute. The fringe is about 6 inches long at the bottom of the tank. The high waisted long skirt is really not that long; it comes right at my knees. My thighs are long eh? Haha. I think it'll look great with booties.

The tanks were $9.99, down from $39 and the skirt was also $9.99, down from $69.

I also bought some stuff from Giordano because they were having a BOGO Free sale, but I'll show you that another time :)

  1. Hi!

    We met at the bloggers' event a few weeks ago (I came as Alison's friend) and I started my own blog. Glad to see a familiar face :)

    Really cute pics from UO. I never have the patience to shop there, but I always admire what other people bring back.
