Thrift Style Thursday - Coats

Well today's Thrift Style Thursday is certainly timely!  I saw something that said almost all of the lower 48 states are suffering some sort of bitter cold snap right now and today we're featuring thrifted coats!  And let me tell you, it's been cold here!

Today I'm sharing a coat I thrifted at an adorable consignment shop in St. Paul called My Sister's Closet.  I love, love, LOVE the retro/vintage feel of this coat.  It's by Nine West though, so I don't think it was actually vintage!  I just know I got a great deal on it!

I snuck out late in the day yesterday to take pictures outside at my work, there's a great area by the city offices that are next door to us and it seemed like a great spot to showcase this coat.  And as you can see, yep, we have snow.  Don't even get me started.

I love that this coat is long, it is great to wear on a day that I'm wearing a skirt or dress because it covers so much of my legs!  It doesn't quite cut it on the sub zero days though, those are days that I reach for more of a parka!

I have a bit of a coat fetish really, I think I got it from my dad - you just ask my mom how many coats he has, I swear.  I'm not as bad about my coats as I am about say, oh my purses, but I definitely have a few!  I figure though when you live in Minnesota and it's winter nine months out of the year, you can justify having a closet full of coats right?

Head on over to our Thrift Style Thursday page to see what the other thrifty fashionistas wear to keep warm in the winter!
