Thrift Inspiration, doing it the Snakeskin way!!

I do love snakeskin-jackets, bags and shoes. Here is a jacket from Ashley Ishams A/W 08 collection, which shows this is a timeless, stylish piece and is versatile enough to go with a floaty fun dress, jeans or dressed up with smart black trousers.

I found this genuine leather jacket in the PDSA charity shop about six months ago for £5. It is brand new and is originally from Joseph, a boutique found in Sloane Street, London.


I haven't worn it yet, but it is a firm favourite of mine and something I know I can wear with anything. I thought I would share this with you!! What is your favourite item of the moment?

Hi Yiqin-so lovely, thanks so much-I think I'll wear it with a dress first!

I think your find is completely brilliant - I have a complete aversion to snakes and therefore snakeskin although I've got a faux snakeskin (ish) belt from Reiss a few years ago.
you'll be getting peeps trying to get this jacket off your back!

That orange dress is amazing

Sharon S said...

Hi Kate-what a wonderful comment, thanks so much my dear! Sorry about your aversion, I do understand the S word can be a complete no no to some!

Hi jess-Isn't it lovely-the ruffles and the colour are gorgeous!

Hi Sharon, how are you feeling? Better I hope! Love the snakeskin, looking for peep toe pumps myself. My favorite item at the moment is my faux fur vest, its sooo cosy and warm in the cold weather!

Skye said...

That's a fabulous find - I looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

I have lots of favourites at the moment, too many!

That's a great jacket. I wear my Ossie snakeskin jacket so rarely! I have to wait for perfect weather conditions.

Angela said...

great find. i would pair it with a bright top. i have a brown suede with snakeskin detail in orange and beige color jacket which i adore with hot pink lining.

Sharon S said...

Hi Silje-thanks so much, yes feeling better now!! The faux fur vest is a very good cosy investment for winter, haha!!

Hi Skye-thanks a lot, I know what you mean, I'm trying to look for old favourites, rather than keep buying, haha!!

Hi miranda-thanks for stopping by with your lovely comment!!

Hi sydney-always lovely, thanks!!

Hi Wendy-thanks so much, yes, damp and rain is no good for leather/snakeskin!!

Hi Savvy-thanks a lot!! Your jacket sounds beautiful!!

Looks liked a cool texture. Can't wait to see what you pair it up with. Thanks for the comment.

I like the inspiration outfit and your jacket - I doubt I would wear real snakeskin though, I don't like snakes ^^
My favourite item of the moment... Might just be my black trousers and my boots which I'll show you in my next post!
And my brother says thanks for wishing him a happy birthday. I showed him your post about the Lego land and he was delighted!

Amazing jacket. BTW - I've given you a blog award. Hope you're feeling better too. :-)

omg definitly a great find, esp for 5 pounds! I just moved to London this September and finding out about all the cheap places to go, where is Sloan St? Is it far from Oxford Circus?

Couture Carrie said...

Love both of these, Sharon!
My fave item right now is actually a vintage black leather Richard Tyler blazer - it has kind of an 80s shape and I thought I'd never wear it again, but I sure am glad I kept it!
