What makes you a Thriftanista?
I spend a lot of time in thrift stores. I love to hunt for good deals and I like to be fashionable on a budget.


What did you find?
Originala Wool Coat from the 60s


How much was it?
I don't remember but I'm sure it was under $10


What makes it special?
I bought this coat when I was searching for a unique winter coat that would keep me toasty warm all summer. I couldn't resist the grape purple color. It's also an extremely thick wool. I did some research on the brand and discovered it was made by a high end coat house in New York and the coats were one of the most expensive lines of that time averaging about $500! 


Where did you find it?
A thrift store in Chicago. It was so long ago I forgot which one.


Where can we see more of your fabulous treasures?
I blog, tweet, facebook, and instagram my finds so look for me at:

Thanks Daisy! I still need to do some work on it. Fix the lining and tighten some buttons. It's an extremely heavy weight coat. Hopefully I won't need it this winter!

HAAAAA! Hmmm I'll have to create a Prince inspired outfit for it. Thanks for stopping by. :)
