Thierry Mugler-Vintage Find

A visit to my very local charity shop paid dividends this weekend, when I scored this lovely sculptured black Thierry Mugler jacket. My photos aren't too brilliant, but the jacket has such a great cut, fit and fabulous shoulder pads too, so I'm guessing its an 80s or 90s piece.


I bought it from my local Sue Ryder Care charity shop for £12.99, as soon as I saw it I just had to have it-the perfect black jacket for next season.

The neckline is a really great design, as is the jacket itself. This is my 2nd Mugler piece, my first one is an 80s body con top which was a lot less in price-only 50p, LOL!!

I've a few black items now for next season-what items will you be collecting for autumn and winter?

This is a very unusual jacket/blazer. I love finding things like that!

I need to start think of autumn as well... I will start shopping for it properly when I go home on holiday in september. Canada is so much cheaper than the UK, where I live at the moment.

Lovely jacket, when ppl hear shoulder pads the cringe, but i love them :o)
I don't make plans to buy anything special, if i see something nice i buy it and keep it till the season it belongs to, comes along.

I love the details on the jacket- great find!!

I still haven't got round to finding a decent jacket for autumn/winter, but we have long summers in HK, so guess it'll give me a few more months to search for one.

Fabulous find!! I love the details.. very unique and special. I'm always on the hunt for more boyfriend blazers and want to add more oversized sweater wraps as an alternative to cardigans.

Hope you are having a lovely day!

What a great jacket, an absolute bargain! For the winter I've found a fantastic pair of maroon boots in the Paul Smith's outlet store and I loved them to bits. They were made for Triumph and were reduced from £200 to £39. They are so great and comfy that I could wear them in bed!!! All the best! Ciao. Antonella
