OOTD: Vintage Advantage

November 17, 2015

There’s nothing better than a coat that doubles up as a dress.

PS: The other titles that I had considered before settling for ‘Vintage Advantage’: Little Red Riding Hoodie, Little Red Riding From the Hood, Red Coat (PLL fans will get this), This Could Come in Handy for Role Playing…only joking!

I love vintage hunting because sometimes it can be so shite and other times you’ll luck out and find the most amazing item! I had quite a successful spree at Cow Vintage over the weekend. I was in love with all my finds and I scored them at a bargain!

Couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled upon this red leather hooded coat (that gave me Beyonce in that Burberry long leather coat vibes) at Cow Vintage. I haven’t visited my local vintage shops in ages. The good thing about shopping in vintage stores or thrift stores is the element of surprise. You just never know what you’re going to find! Will it be in your size? Will it be in a good condition? Will it be a long lost memorabilia that could be worth millions???

I tried on this leather coat and it was instantly love at first try. I was sold. This guy saw me trying it on and said; “Did you come here in that coat? I mean is it yours? Because if it isn’t you need to take that home with you today. It’s fabulous dahling!”

You know statements like these are all I need to put me out of dilemma. And I wasn’t even having any!

I was SOLD!
