04 Dec the saville row coat I missed & thrifting for the winter
Almost every day over the last couple of weeks I have uttered the same phrase upon getting dressed or finding an awesome piece of clothing; WINTER WILL NOT WIN THIS YEAR! After an impromptu trip to Value Village, I have complete faith in my little mantra!
First things first; I have to give the eagle-eyed Momo her props for spotting this gem of a coat I’m wearing. I inexplicably walked past it, distracted by another coat unworthy of her Saville Row find. I now own a piece made by the world’s finest tailors and I can only imagine who owned it before me! I love this coat – LOVE. IT. – and after I googled how much such a coat costs, £450/$910 compared to my $25, I laughed out loud and knew right at that moment the Gods are on my side. Mo also found an equally impressive coat. Adding a fur stole and the red hat took the entire look to a whole ‘nother level. And if you saw our last Style Twins post, this little accessory’s versatility still stands.
Until now, I’ve never really appreciated how the right coat will make any outfit, no matter how basic, look incredibly stylish and elegant. I have worn mine with formal and work wear and even sweat pants and trainers! My fuss-free lazy outfits all of a sudden look well thought out.
Please, get out there and get yourself a solid winter coat. I can’t stress this enough, take your time and don’t make the same mistake I did in hurriedly passing a coat I am now in love with. I cringe at the thought of how many other pieces I’ve missed because I was moving too fast.
Let us know what you think!
Until Next Time,
