Style Files: Elanor Inspired + Vintage Vanderbilt

When I first found this jacket at the local thrift store I about passed out. It's absolutely perfect. It's a vintage college jacket from Vanderbilt University. Funny thing is that I used to live like 5 minutes away from Vanderbilt for a semester of college, but yet I found it back here in my home state.  Funny how those things work out :D
I am also wearing the newest cowl to the shop, called the Amelia. The shop is only going to be open for another month since I'll be going to Israel, so act fast now! Don't forget that I also give 10% off to readers with the code streetsandstripes.  I'm sorry I sound like a broken record when it comes to the shop, but I get a lot of comments saying how everyone wants one, and since we're all friends I wanted to give you a discount! Okay, end of story. I'm done now :D
This outfit was inspired by none other than the missing bird herself Elanor! When I first saw her outfit post on her blog I got excited because I had similar items in my own wardrobe.  You have no idea how excited I was to get up this morning and pull together this outfit. I love when that happens! So what do you think....did I do it?
Lots of exciting things have been happening around here.  First off I got an external hard drive (I get pretty stoked about such things), I got my hair fixed (yay!), I'm making more sales and more cowls at the shop (more on that later) and I'm preparing for my internship in the summer and for studying abroad this semester. Phew! That is an exhausting list to look at. But I'm so glad to be staying busy
