Great Ganga Week — Take 1
Ganga: pronounced GONG-uh, a Spanish word meaning bargain, great deal.
Memorial Week was good to me, bad to my credit card balance. But, hey, I'll deal with that next month!
If there's one thing I can't pass up, it's a screamin' deal and there were soooo many of 'em. A lot of things I'd been eyeing for literally months went on super-sale around the end of May. Huh, patience does pay off. Things are trickling in now, so I'm going to devote this week to killer online buys.
Today: Sauce jacket (if you click onto the link, let me assure you I paid nowhere near that price).
This would be one of my eBay scores. The jacket is only available (that I've seen) at The Hip Chick.
It's got this Breakfast With Tiffany's but with edge vibe, as in "I'd like the french toast, please. And — a beer."
The jacket has a Chanel-ish feel with the cut, but it's a soft cotton-poly blend. The studs add the rock n' roll, of course. My only hangup is that the edges are unfinished, so there's a fair amount of fraying thread. It's part of the look and charm, I know, but it still bugs. I think I'll get over it. Either way, it's such a great alternative to a cardi.
