Jazz Man

American Apparel top, Current/Elliott jeans, Jeffrey Campbell clogs from Lori's Shoes,
Vintage Chanel backpack, Vintage necklace and bracelet

I wore this to go to the first night of Jazz Fest this Friday with the BF. We saw the Sauce Boss, who is described as having a "distinctive slide guitar sound, wrought out of his 53 Telecaster like a man beggin' for mercy, and slung through a 1948 Fender amp like a dark horse running through the night. [T]he Sauce Boss has a truly authentic sound that leaves you looking for something you thought you'd lost, but in fact you never knew you had." Yeah, I have no idea what that all means, but he handed out bowls of gumbo after his show, so I'm now a loyal fan!

And this was my first time out with the new bag! I love it, everything is so much easier when you have both hands free! Also, thank you all so much for your comments on the shopping addiction post, it's comforting to know that I'm in the presence of so many fellow addicts! We can quit whenever we want, we just choose not to... right?

That backpack is amazing. I love Chanel's quilted style. Can't wait until I actually have a job again and might actually justify spending $$$ on one bag.

i am in love with your backpack. So adorable, what a great find.

and.... i think the 25 speedy is the perfect size, it seems small but it fits so much. I feel like if the bag was any bigger, it would get really heavy.
