Thrift Inspiration, doing it Etro's way!

Well, following on from yesterdays post, I thought I would show you the Topshop gilet I managed to thrift yesterday. I have been inspired by Etro and Guccis gilets this autumn, but I didn't want a full furry one, as the majority of them are dry clean only, so too high maintenance if I'm going to wear regularly!


Etro also featured a gorgeous black and leather studded one in S/S 08
I'd love one like this too, sigh...!!


Now its been freshly laundered, its ready to go and will go with virtually anything in my wardrobe. It is a handy addition to keep me cosy and stylish. I have my wool gilet too, so thats my fill of this trend for now!

Have a great Sunday!!

That's a great choice!

I love furry or leather studded gilets. So boho and great for winter! I saw an Etro-ish one at Zara too, and I considered buying it, but then the price was too high for me.. Great piece you thrifted!

emmapeelpants said...

Oh that's a lovely one you found. I'd like to have a full furry yeti type one, but I'm actually not that mad on gilets so I'll save myself for a full coat to snuggle up in! ;)

You are my thrifty goddess!!

Christine said...

That is a great find!

I use to go thrift shopping quite a bit. If you have the time and patience to scour the racks, you find some great things!

ellie said...

Skye said...

I love the way you can go out and find what you're looking for when you go charity shopping or car boot saling or whatnot. I only find good things if I just let fate put whatever into my path - never if I try to shop to order! You have my admiration indeed.

Lovely find! You always have so much luck with your vintage things! I need some of that too hehe. That leather studded etro one is so SO gorgeous.

Danz said...

Hey Sharon! *Sigh* I so love fall clothing but seeing that it's a tropical climate here, I can only wear summery clothing most of the time. I can get away with blazers and scarves on rainy days but I would just look ridiculous in anything fur. Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow.
