Vibrant Vintage

This coat was a lucky thrift find this winter. I wore it on Christmas and fell in love with again this weekend when I wore it to dinner.  My favorite thing about it is the pretty pink lining! I paired it with my 75 cent Cynthia Rowley blouse, also thrifted, and my favorite jeans from Target. I buy the cropped jeans because they hit my ankle at just right spot. I’m afraid they might not bring these babies back this year, because they only have them in high rise, which is not a good look for my body type. Fun thrift fact: most thrift stores carry seasonal clothing year round, meaning you can shop for coats in the summer, so be sure to keep an eye out for statement coats all year, not just this winter. Most people aren’t thirfting coats in the middle of July, so you can get first pick!
