Thrift Style: vintage trench coat, DVF boots, and CJ jeans

I love putting together completely thrifted looks especially when the price is under $25!  Great price for a trench coat, DVF boots and CJ by Cookie Johnson jeans. This is a typical everyday mom uniform for me. I'm casual and comfortable but heels and a tucked shirt give me a more pulled together look.

I pulled out my favorite trench coat. Any guesses as to why it's my favorite? Yep. It's the color purple. Pastels also happen to be on trend right now so I'm glad to have found it! I like trench coats but the classic shape does nothing for me. I like the full a-line skirt. It hugs at the waist and flows away from the hips. It's long but not too long. It also fits my arms well. Always a good thing when your arms are freakishly short.

I've had it over a year and this is probably my third time wearing it. It's hard to find the perfect day to wear it in Chicago. It's either too cold or too hot for it.

The granny bag is from a Goodwill haul. I can't tell if it's vintage or not. The fabric is a cool vintage "mad men" style but the wooden handles don't look like they're very worn. I did find a very old straight pin in the bag. It was probably used for sewing or knitting supplies.

I use it as a laptop bag. It fits perfectly.

I didn't get much wear out of the DVF ankle boots this winter. Probably because I haven't been able to find them in the cave closet.

Super cute look. I don't think purple looks good on me it looks great on you! I'm loving little V in the background.

That jacket is amazing! And I still don't believe you on that price =P. What a steal! I'm not much of a blue or purple wearer, but I see you have a lot of purple and blue here which is great for me seeing as though we are the same complexion. Definitely inspiration for me to embrace the hue, because you are really WERKing it! ;].

I love the pastel purple on you. It's radiant. The purse/laptop bag is everything! Want.

Kimberly if you're the same complexion then you can wear purples and blues, just make sure they are lighter to compliment the warm undertones, rather than deeper for cool undertones.

Yes on the jacket! I'm mad that little V is in every picture, haha!

Hmmm... as to the thrift gift, maybe earrings or another accessory?
