She Thrifted

shethrifteddior

Meet Solanah from Vixen Vintage. She thrifted that beret. And she bought that divine jacket at an antique expo.
I know antique expos are not quite thrifting... But I broke my own rule of 'thrift only' to feature her. I shall suffer the consequences of breaking my own rules; maybe I won't eat cheese for a day... Nevermind, that's just cruel.
Anyway, back to the beautiful coat... A good winter coat is always an investment and you might as well get the most glorious vintage one you can find, because a new one will cost as much, if not more... Solanah's style has a very particular vintage look and it's a pleasure to see her wear such gorgeous garments on a regular basis. #vintageforlife

I just used a hash tag in a post. I'm ashamed.

Most amazing coat ever. Totally worth breaking your rules. I think you should be rewarded with extra cheese for featuring it.

I think it counts as thrifting! Isn't the definition of thrifting just buying used? ;)

Depends upon the antique venue, it's either highway robbery or thrifty, rarely in the middle. I love it when it's thrifty.

I wish I lived in a place where I needed a winter coat, because it would be so much fun to hunt down a fantastic vintage one like hers.

That coat is to DIE for. Or at least worth a limb or two.

It doesn't matter if you broke your own rule about "thrift only" what's important is that you were able to share something interesting and adorable. That's a nice coat from Solanah!

Totally worth a rule break. That coat is amazing! It is a very vintage look, but completely wearable, I think. It doesn't look like fancy dress, which sometimes dressing head-to-toe from one era can.
