Last week, I posted here about my realization that I had a vintage coat sitting in my parents' house just like one Betty Draper wore on Mad Men. I was just home for a visit and had the chance to dig the coat out of my old closet. My mother bought it for me at least ten years ago but I never wore it. Now I know why.
This thing is huge! I thought that was the end of it until I read on The Purse Forum about a coat that was altered from a size 12 to a size 0. Maybe this coat still has hope. I've added it to my alterations needed pile and will schedule a trip to the tailor soon.
While I was home, my mother and hit the thrift and antique stores. It's a favorite pass-time of ours. I have lots of thrifted clothing to post about but it is currently being washed. One of my favorite finds was discovered at a little antique store. It fits my latest Mad Men fashion yearning.
It's a sweater clip that I found for $5! I can't wait to wear this in the fall with one of my favorite J Crew sweaters.
More thirft finds to come in the next few days.
