Thrift Inspiration, Ferragamo style!!!

It feels like a long time since I've done a 'Thrift Inspiration...' post, but the turn of the weather and my latest charity shop find has prompted me to do one at last!!

A favourite recurring trend this Autumn is houndstooth, plaid and tartan and its been reworked by designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Salvatore Ferragamo, who has brought out this gorgeous dress for this coming season:




On a shopping trip last week in Colchester we came across a hospice shop, which had an amazing amount of 'vintage'. I was really pleased to find this gorgeous St Michael Marks & Spencer houndstooth Chanel-esque cardigan, which ticks a few boxes for me-namely its really thick and cosy for now, is a great hybrid cardi jacket and is a perfect print for this season:



Its been ideal to wear for our temperamental weather now, I've teamed it with my Topshop denim gilet and Breton striped tee underneath and my grey M&S skinnies and summer ankle pirate style boots:


I love wearing jewelry too, especially earrings. What trends are influencing your look this season?

I love houndstooth, such a classic jacket. This season my inspirations are definitely styles from the fifties, sixties and seventies plus dark florals.

Hope the "houndstooth" thing lasts a few months. I've got a great jacket to wear and would like to wear it with a skirt that is about 10 pounds away me wearing. I THINK I can get it done by October :)

You jacket is great! I like the way you've "casualed" it with the pairings.

Your new header is GREAT, too!

That new header is so gorgeous, you look like a film star!
I do love dogstooth, puppytooth and houndstooth. I remember going mad for it in the 1980's, too.
I love your outfit, cosy without looking too wintery and such a bargain, too. x

I was so struck by the Ferragamo windows when I first walked by the store and saw all the checks.

Your header is AMAZING.
