FIT: One, The Holiday Blazer

Now. I really don't post pics of myself on here ... but friends tell me I should. 
So these pics came out nice, and we (me & my co-worker)  Dominique were incredibly bored.
 So starting today I will be keep a journal of looks on here, not daily. But I promise if I have time to take pics
and make sure they look ok, I will update with a new outfit.
. Cool? Cool.

I called it the holiday blazer because it reminds me of Christmas.
$19 from Second Time Around.
