gonna get you sucker.

i get to the counter with my items...

me: can i leave this (leopard jacket) with you?
i decided not to get it.
sales clerk: ok, sure.
me: thanks.
sales clerk: i love this (leopard) jacket...
it's so cute...
a lot of people have been buying it...
it's selling fast.
me: you know what? i'll take it.
sales clerk: got you, sucker! ok, are you sure?

does this happen to you? do you get suckered into buying things??

It's a super cute jacket, so you aren't a sucker at all!

E. Louise said...

GET EM!! I love this!!

Chyrel Gomez said...

I love the shorts and Haha! I think it's a great decision to buy the jacket. Is GFC really gonna be discontinued? Followed you already.

Tara said...

Aw, I didn't know GFC was going away. Sad...

Anyway, I am WAY to open to the power of suggestion. I am a marketer's (and a sales person's) dream, that's for sure. But in this case, it wasn't a bad thing, I don't think...I LOVE that jacket.

Frannie Pantz said...

Great choice on the jacket Oomph! I have heard about GFC as well. I already follow you on BL, but feel free to follow me as well if you like. By the way, I am the most influenced person on the planet and I can fall for any slight sales gimmick. Don't feel bad, it happens to all of us.

Love the jacket. Also I heard GFC is just going away for non-blogger users, so that's a bit of a relief.

I LOVE this look. I am sitting here staring at the photos and trying to remember if I have a red top that would work since I have similar items of the other two.
Great buy. I can't say I do. The scenario I usually face is either other customers or the sales clerks asking where in the world did I find item x in the store. I usually pick up stuff that look like nothing by themselves but great foundation pieces. My sister is the funniest cause she quietly walks behind me in a store and grabs 50% of what I buy for herself. And we wear the same size!

Beautiful look!

Jackie said...

Omg omg you ain't no sucker cause I'm a sucker for this coat... me likey!!! Love this whole outfit from head to toe. Its really edgy. That mochi looks gooood. I'm trying to shoot for next month to fly down you down to hang and take pictures?? :) hehe.

Call me M said...

I really liked your shorts, and the jacket looks great! I have many things in my closet that sales people "made me" buy, and now I regret cause I don't wear them. That's why I prefer to shop without any "help". I usually run the other way when I see them. They annoy me.
Regarding Bloglovin now, I was already a follower of yours there, since I use Bloglovin to follow the blogs I like. If you want you can follow me on Bloglovin too. I hope that didn't sound like all these blogger/spammer comments that people usually leave on the blogs. So, no pressure!

Style Journey said...

Love the jacket! Glad you suckered you into buying it because it looks great paired with your leather shorts :)

We just signed up for Bloglovin recently ourselves.

Fashionable Rose said...

it happens to me as well at when i buy things! sometimes i am like.. i will think about it and then they say is the last piece and you won't find it and then i am like ok i will get it!
sometimes they don't convince tho!
love your leather pants!and generally the outfit! is fantastic!

Justine said...

Well, you didn't get suckered too bad - this jacket is fabulous! Looks awesome with the leather shorts too!

Tiffany said...

That jacket was a fabulous purchase!! It looks great with the shorts. And those nude booties make your legs go on for miles!

welldressedmaker said...

HAHAHAH! But I think you got a good jacket! Especially since it has a hood and is cut kinda sporty-- very unique for a leopard print jacket. I want that peanut butter-filled mochi, btw. Why oh why can't I find some here?!?!

Unknown said...

Teresa said...

your boots! outstanding!!! i'm also so curious about that azuki bean thing :) looks weird, but yummie at the same time!!


Nicole said...

Love the jacket!

I'm normally not one to succumb to suggestion, but I do have my weak moments.

I have to ask, where do you get your mochi? Or do you make it yourself? I absolutely love it on the rare occasion that I can find it!

Cel said...

Thankfully I tend to be pretty immune to peer pressure, for the most part. The last time I got carried away though, I came home with a ghastly 80's shirt dress. At least you came home with a cute leopard hoodie!

Anonymous said...

Oh girl...I fall for that all the time. How can you not?! Honestly, I think you did the right thing. That jacket is H-O-T! I love it...I wish I could be bold like you.

Joandy said...

this jacket is the cuter version of the one i saw in zara, pairing it with leather shorts is perfect!!! I followed you via bloglovin, follow me sometimes:)

Lindsey A. Turner said...

Funny story about the jacket. Great sales tactic. I hope I sent the package to the right address. I sent about two weeks ago. It should have arrived by now. worried.

Claire said...
