I have today and tomorrow off work, so today I planned a lovely personal shopping day with my friend Elaine in the quietest stores before Christmas: thrift stores.
Good walking boots, tights and simple pieces to slip on and off quickly. Minimal jewelry for snagging on things.
Since it's a bit chilly, I added my velvet blazer, velvet hat, and fingerless gloves. Of course I wore my Christmas trees!
Well. I had one of my best ever thrifting days! We spent over 5 hours doing just two big stores. Elaine got some lovely things (go back and get that emerald green dress!), but I feel like I totally scored. Check out this wool late 70s winter coat I got for $44.99:
Check out the details on the back of it:
The belt is actually stitched to the coat across the entire back, so it never looks messy. This is my perfect coat!
