Paint it Red





I'm wearing a VINTAGE coat, TOPSHOP jeans, MONKI sweater, NEW LOOK lace ups, ZARA clutch, H&M fedora and RAY-BAN sunglasses

Shot by Carmy from Piece by Piece 

I purchased this vintage beauty for a meagre £12 a couple of weeks ago at a Bradford on Avon charity shop. How amazing for such a well-made coat? You may notice a similar set of backgrounds on a good friend of mine's fashion blog over the coming weeks; Carmy from Piece by Piece. She came down to stay in Bristol so how could we not do a little blogging shoot together?

I've never been particularly gifted in spotting hidden gems or hunting down designer steals in charity shops. Perhaps I'm just not in the right place at the right time, or maybe it is simply all down to pure luck. I'm definitely going to dedicate a little more time to charity shopping or shall we call it 'thrifting'?

If only that ankle length camel coat sitting next door on the rail was a couple of sizes smaller...
