Thrifted Coat

About a month ago, I ran into the thrift store while Joe was in a meeting and the boys were at a birthday party. I had a little girl with me. When we spied a little green, wool coat, she fell in love. Instantly. She "oohed" and "ahhed" over it and I knew, if it fit, we would buy it.

Little did I know that it fits just right, right now, and it was 50% off. I think it was $2. Or maybe $1. (I'm not sure because I bought other things.)

It took me a couple of weeks to get it to the cleaners, but I'm so happy I finally did. She loves it even more. She wants to wear it. All the time.

Warm. Woolen. Vintage. Classic.

It is an awesome coat. It amazes me that people at the thrift shops pass up the vintage clothing to purchase the newer stuff. That was quite a score and it was just waiting for Spencer to see it, love it, and have it to wear. It is really pretty!
