Frumpy Edge? Edgy Frump?

Every so often I get frustrated by how ubiquitous fashion can be - especially when your budget limits you to mainstream stores instead of couture :) One way to stand out (for good or bad) is to pair unusual items such as this jacket with more mainstream items such as these basic J. Crew cords. I found this jacket in the clearance aisle at Burlington Coat Factory. It was apparently part of 3 piece suit but only the jacket was left. Although it is two sizes too large and a bit frumpy, I loved the color and decided that for $7 I would take a risk and see if I could make it work.

What do you think? Did I succeed or am I getting aufed this week for my frumpy taste?
