You know when you least expect to find something you find it? That’s what this post is about. Or maybe it’s about the fact that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a slice of designer into your wardrobe?
I’m wearing a Christian Dior mens coat found at Housing Works thrift.

A coat was not on my mind when entering the shop in Soho a couple of weeks ago.  Actually nothing is when walking into a second hand shop.  It was the infamous: ‘I’ll just go and have a look’  which is code for you are going to find something.  So said so done.  Less than ten seconds in and I clock the coat hanging behind the counter.  I assume that it’s sold if it’s out of reach.  Thank God I bloody well asked because it wasn’t.Finding gems is what I live for.  Well not live for but it’s why I started visiting New York in the first place.

Check my Instagram to see photos when I found it and to follow daily surplus shinanigans.

    That is the absolute best to capture a find like that coat at a thrift shop. Housing Works is one such place where you can stumble upon a find like your coat. It looks gorgeous and I love that it is actually a mens coat.
