Chain Gang Vintage Jacket swap!

Well, it's that time of the year again, blog-a-holics! Time for a fashion swap and a chance to win another vintage treasure!
At Secondhand star we are going on our third, (hooray) swap-a-thon. The first for us featured a wraparound skirt found by the brilliant, Belle de Couture. (See here). The second gave away silk pants, (chosen by yours truly, here again). And this is is the best yet! A tribal print jacket chosen by our latest member of the swap team, Devon, from
Each of us has a unique voice when it comes to styling a one-of-a-kind item. I decided to go the whole-hog, and opted for an 80's, giant bow detail.
I'd found this funky, re-sale, designer top in east LA for 3$ and couldn't wait to pair it off with something. The big, floppy bow can be tied in front or worn down the back like a scarf.
The earrings are another, recent, vintage find. They just screamed, "your grandmother's closet-"-but in a good way...
And I actually needed retro shades today as it was blisteringly bright outdoors. These, (again) remind of the maroon colors my mother wore in the late 70's/early 80's...
A pair of black, suede booties and American Apparel riding breeches finished it off. A little eclectic, but hey, fashion is all about risk.
I do love these heels for fall. They've got the new and improved, front tassel/fringe and a decent spike to boot.

Ready for the best part? This very jacket can be yours! Simply head on over and visit Jen at Belle de Couture and enter to win it yourself! So, who's up for some Dynasty re-runs!
