Thrift Inspiration, doing it the JPG way!

The A/W 08 collection from Jean Paul Gaultier showcased his love of print and design, particularly in an artistic way-I love this first look especially.

This 80s/90s jacket by Jean Paul Gaultier is so reminiscent of this years trend. I got this last year from my local Sue Ryder Care charity shop. I adore the designs used-snakes and mythological ladies and creatures, it is a picture in itself.

The best bit was it was only £5!

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

It's interesting to see how designers come back to the same ideas time and again - I suppose that's why it can be an investment to buy designer pieces.

Hi Sharon, I'm partial to the second outfit. I remember in the early 80's I use to have a outfit similar to it. I love the blue jacket and the price was great too! Stop by when you can I have a treat! Don't Laugh! Deb
