When the temperature finally climbed above zero I scooted outside and snapped these photos, and while I wasn’t warm I wasn’t cold either. This 1980’s faux fur lined trench coat, my ‘Russia Coat’ as D dubed it, is incredibly warm. I’m talking this coat kept me comfortable on my walk home in -17 degrees and below. I thrifted it at Goodwill for something like $19 this past August and even though it cost me more than triple to have it cleaned I consider it money well spent.

what great finds have you had while thrifting?

    • Meredith, my boyfriend was a bit shocked by the actual coat cost verse the cleaning cost but I would do it again in a heartbeat.

  3. That coat looks nice and warm. It looks like it should be paired with a fur hat.

    • Rebecca, you read my mind! I actually have a black fur hat that I originally wore with this look but it was a bit too much, I looked like a Bond villain!

  4. I love that you posted about having your coat cleaned which cost more than the thrifted price! It’s still a bargain and it looks great! I love thrifted pieces (especially coats) cause they don’t make ’em like that anymore lol! I love the rest of your outfit too! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. Would you like to follow each other?

    • You’re so right, they really don’t make clothes (coats in particular) like they used too, maybe that’s why I own so many vintage ones!

  5. this outfit is perfect, lovin the blog!! following you now love x

    • Eimear thank you so much and I loved the vintage jacket you’re wearing in your latest post, it’s the perfect cut on you!

  6. you need to have a tag for items in your wardrobe he has named. i know there have been others but i can’t think of them right now–all i know is that they’ve all been awesome

    • Haha Andrea, that is such a great idea. He has the wackiest names for the things I wear, which is equally hilarious and endearing.
