THE LUCKY BARGAIN

here's a little story to this zara tweed jacket. One weekday after a lunch, I went for a quick stroll to Zara and there I saw this Chanel-esque jacket. The moment I saw it, the moment I knew that the jacket will be mine. Sad when I discovered the outerwear, my driver was already at the lobby waiting for me to hop in the car for the next meeting. I remember I was super busy that month that I never got the chance to rethink about the jacket. about two months later, during another after-lunch mall stroll, I found the jacket in my size, hanging in the final sales rack in 1/3 of it's original price.. talk about a lucky bargain..
