Thrifty Thursday – Black & White*
It’s happening again. For a brief second I thought that things were slowing down a bit, but life is pushing forward at a pace that I can barely keep up with. Sadly, this leaves me with less time for thrift store adventures.
However, I do manage to squeeze in 15 minutes here and there. :)
I’ll be debuting dress number 2 in two weeks! I’m very excited–I am seriously loving this challenge. I’ve seen some really cute (and hideously ugly) dresses and my next one is cute and a little more casual than the first!
Anyway, that’s still two weeks away…
Today I’m going to show you one of my favourite purchases to date. I wear it more than anything else, and I love it.
Meet my winter coat:
I found this in November on one of Value Village’s half price days. I always find that on those “deal days” I tend to migrate to racks I may not normally go through as the prices end up being stupidly cheap. I found this coat on a rack and fell in love with it immediately. It’s nothing special–just a Suzy Shier jacket–but I love the design and length! I find the black and white blend makes it so versatile, and I love the double buttons down the front.
But what I loved most was the price: $4.
The coat was in amazing condition and for $4 I couldn’t resist! It’s incredibly comfortable and I find that I’ve worn it more than any other coat I have this winter.
I usually pair it with my H&M black scarf ($7) and my red leather gloves or red purse for a little pop of colour.
Good deals like this just make my heart so happy. I was actually just perusing through everything I’ve shared with you since we started this little Thursday date, and thrift shopping has completely revamped my tired little wardrobe.

Girl! That is a seriously amazing deal! A coat for $4, isn’t thrifting amazing? Now, if only I can hone your skills and luck.
