I love a good deal. It takes a lot to force me to pay full retail for something. But I adore these Ziggy August WUC. I paid full price, and I know that I am nuts, but I kinda feel like I need a backup pair. I'm also wearing my Wee Ghost Stripe CRB and Patagonia Better Sweater. My friend found this jacket at the thrift store! I have always wanted one, and for $8 I don't mind having it second hand. Ones lady's last season is another's wardrobe essential!
