Have you ever bought an item from Goodwill, loved it, and donated it back to only find it on the rack?! This has happened a number of times to me being an avid thrifter. There are moments when there are items that have been mass-produced and could be yours, but there are other times when it is a unique item that stands out!

While shopping during the Femme Fatale holiday market in DC a few weekends ago, my friend Jennifer and I attended to support Carolyn as she acted as a vendor for DC Goodwill. While we browsed the amazing vintage items on Carolyn’s curated racks, Jennifer came across a vintage floral track jacket. She showed me the beauty and I quickly realized that I previously bought the jacket from Goodwill a few months ago for myself! It is adorned with autumn colored and bold floral to keep it feminine. I was so excited to see that the item had circulated back into a great closet. 

Last February, I rocked the jacket with a denim shirt, skinny pants and studded Doc Martens to go to the office. Jennifer describes herself as a hippie flower child, so this jacket is right up her alley. She quickly purchased it from Carolyn and wore the jacket a few days later. As I thought,  Jennifer put her own spin and paired the jacket with a graphic sweater and jeans!
