I try to always walk into a thrift store with a mental list of things I need and a list of things I definitely don’t need. Coats have been number one on that list for a while because, really, I have an embarrassing number of coats. In fact, my last thrifted find was about a coat.
I suppose fate has a way of intervening. While I was idly flipping through the heavy winter gear section on a recent trip with my friend Rachael, this vintage coat with a beautiful chevron pattern jumped out at me.
