Thrift Inspiration, Burberry Shearling Style

After finding my black boots on Sunday, I had thought that would be my best find for the month-which from the boot sale it was. So when I decided to take a stroll down to my local Sue Ryder charity shop on Tuesday, I couldn't leave without my find in the last picture below.

I was greatly inspired by the gorgeous Burberry shearling jacket, which is available at Net-A-Porter for £2395, seen here:

Like my find, it is cropped, double breasted and deliciously snug!!

My one doesn't have the Burberry embellishments of shoulder epaulettes and arm details, but considering it was only £19.95, I can overlook that and it is a simplistic, minimalist style that will not date, so I'm sure I'll be wearing this for years to come.

So thats the winter coat sorted-my 2nd shearling in the wardrobe.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, I hope the gloomy weather clears for a dry one for us in the UK!!

I can just imagine you wearing this with a brilliantly coloured scarf or with a threesome of bold gold brooches to set off that expanse of black collar.
Isn't it exciting when you find such special things going for a song? YOu now have to post about how you manage to find space for all this lovely stuff in your wardrobe and how you manage to part with any of it when the space is just not there anymore!

I would have been dancing around the shop to find that! I love the huge collar and cropped style too. This weather is driving me mad, the shoes i had on today have leather soles and got so slippery in the rain I cant tell you how many times I nearly ended up on my bum LOL xx

Anusha said...

Oooh you will look and feel wonderful in such a stylish, sharp-looking jacket! I love it -- especially since it's so hard to find warm outerwear that also looks good, at least it has been so for me. Great find!
