A Thrifted Coat on a Cold Winter Day

By Posted on 1 min read 4333 views

The holidays are over and it is back to the day to day. Fashion Week is only a month away and it is crazy how quickly it comes on the heels of the holiday season. During the rush of the season I did a quick shoot on one of the coldest days of year thus far, though it has not been particularly cold so far this winter. Lets hope the polar vortex does not rear it’s ugly head the week of Fashion Week. Fingers crossed.

The day this was shot I was visiting a cute town to do some last minute Christmas shopping. As it was so cold I opted for some over the knee boots, tights and a sweater. I then threw on this thrifted coat that I picked for $24.00 Not bad a price and it is quite warm. The bag you have seen before on the blog is from Micheal Kors. The boots are from Zara and the skirt is from H&M both are not new and I shopped my closet. The sweater is also not new and is from Theory and the sunnies were borrowed from my friend. The gloves which I have been wearing all winter are also not new. Neither is the scarf which I picked up at local shop a number of years ago. So again the entire look is pre-loved or I shopped my closet. Have you picked up anything second hand this season? And if you do shop second hand, what is your favorite pre-loved item?

    What a fabulous coat and you certainly can’t beat the $24 price tag. You always find the best bargains. Since I’m all about living a more sustainable lifestyle, I really need to get into second hand shopping. Will have to hit you up for some tips next time I see you 🙂

    Love your coat, it looks so elegant, and what a steal at that price! I used to work a few minutes away from a consignment store and would make weekly stops there during lunch. Since working from home I haven’t been back as often, but I do occasionally shop second hand on The RealReal and eBay!

    What a gorgeous coat, I love the collar of it. Perfect for shopping, such a great find!! I love shopping second hand, it’s actually so much fun finding pieces no one else will have. I have a lot of vintage bed jackets that I love, their so easy to wear if you want something different to a cardigan. I’m always on the look for different ones, ha!! I hope this week is fab for you lovely x

    Love your skirt and boots. That look is absolutely perfect from head to toe and the accessories are gorgeous too!
    If we talk about second hand clothes I adore to search my mom’s wardrobe from her youth and remake these clothes.

    Such a beautiful coat you are wearing, I loved the way you have styled it with that lovely denim skirt and over the Knee boots. I love wearing a denim skirt with tights and boots. You are looking so pretty in this outfit. The cross body bag is making this look even more stylish.

    Hello dear Allie, hope you’re having a magical 2020 so far! I’m just coming back from a trip and catching up on your site!

    I know, time is flying and I can’t believe Fashion Month is almost here, excited to see your content and your favorites!

    I can’t believe this coat was 24,00…. such a cool piece that I’m sure will help you to survive the cold season, by the way I adored how you added interesting graphic details with the gloves!

    Have a wonderful year ahead!

    Allie, I adore this outfit! I have really been wanting a denim mini skirt with the buttons down the front. They are so cute! And what a great coat. There is something really special to me about a thrifted coat. It is the first thing I look at when I go thrift shopping and I have a lot of really fabulous and unique coats that I bought second hand! I need to go thrifting soon and look for a denim skirt now! And probably another coat or two!
