In The Fashionista's Closet: Thelma 2.0

I felt like Thelma from Good Times in my jacket. Which is a compliment to me.

Scarf (around hair): H&M
Men's Shirt: Thrifted
Jeans: H&M
Bag: Kooba
Boots: From a clothes swap
I imagine her wearing this on her way to dance class or to one of her many dates. Y'all know Thelma was engaged twice before she married Keith right?


Or maybe she wore this when they were protesting the college cafeteria and she met Ibe (just realized that it was spelled Ibe and not Ebay, lol) and got her hair braided up.


But I'd like to think that she was wearing this jacket when she met Keith, maybe walking from the bus stop or at the boutique. He would think "I gotta meet that girl in that far out jacket, she is one foxy lady!"



But no matter who wore it, I'm glad they gave it up so that I could be a happy little thrifter when I spied it at the thrift store. So thank you.



But I still think it's Thelma's.....
