Thrifted Treasure: Thriftanista in a Vintage Trench Coat

Thrift Adventure

Greetings! I don't have an adventure today. I have not been thrifting in over a week. Le sigh. However, I have created a facebook page called the Thriftanista Social Club. It's sort of an adventure, since I don't know what the outcome is going to be. My vision is a community of thrifters participating in monthly adventures, sharing thrift hauls and fabulous finds. If that sounds like a fit for you you, please join us. If you're local, there's an event coming in March with COCKTAILS (or mocktails)! Hey!! If you're not on fb, I will periodically send updates via the blog or twitter.

What I'm Wearing

I've had this trench in my closet for a few months now. I love vintage trench coats but they never seem to fit me right. I own 2 others. It may have something to do with the classic long straight boxy shape. I think I'm too short for long coats. I was super excited about finding this one. It has a drawstring that cinches the waist and falls right under the bust for me making my legs appear longer. It's twirl-able too! I love it and hope this is one I'll actually wear when the weather warms up.

My curled locs had their own agenda one day post bantu knot out.

Do you own a classic trench?
Will you be joining the Thriftanista Social Club?

I just sent a request to join the 'club' :) I love trench coats too but, only if they are shorter and not so long...I too am not tall enough for a lot of the trenches out there! :)

I do own a classic trench but its bright purple, almost like your background, I get compliments on it every spring! And I got it from Tarjay to boot! I love this one you are rocking!

that trench is fire!!! It's so classic and feminine! I don't own one but have wanted one for years. I have the opposite problem of being really tall so the sleeves never fall quite right. ugh!

A bright puple trench? I must see this!

Mama Violet said...

Thank you.

That's a pickle with the sleeves. Us short girls can at least have our clothes shortened.

Keep searching.
