Happy Thursday! So excited to be brining another Thrift Style Thursday post to you today along with all the other girls! We are also excited to have Alex of Snippetswithalex and The Fair Trade Fashionistas join us today!

You can never have too many shoes, purses… too much clothes, or make up…  If you ask me, you can never have too many coats! I learned it the hard way, the good way, living in Minnesota. 

Coats and outerwear are one of the first sections I check out when I go to a thrift store. Here is why:

– I am always looking for a new coat,

– I am always looking for a new VINTAGE coat,

– I am always looking for a new WARMER coat!

It took me a while to decide which coat to style for today’s post, but I settled on this vintage one, that I bought a couple years ago at Salvation Army. It’s not only vintage, but it was made here in Minneapolis, plus the festive red color puts me in a holiday mood, and I am so excited the holidays are right around the corner! So from the oversized pockets, to the side zippers, to the missing buttons, this coat has as much character, personality and history, as I do.

Happy Thursday everyone, and don’t forget to check out every one else’s posts:

  1. That coat is fantastic! I bought a red coat at a second-hand store earlier this year for just $8 and it’s become my favourite coat of all time. Red is just a bit cheerier than the typical black/grey/brown coats, don’t you think?

  2. beautiful coat and we love these photos! gorgeous!!

  3. Great Pics!! : )

  4. heyi Zhenya….i just adored the 3rd last pic of the post…it says so much about you…you look like a very charming happy person…
