One of my favorite fashion pieces to thrift is outerwear. This is one item that you will truly get the best bang for your bucks, When selecting a winter coat, I always look for a style that is timeless and can last for a few seasons. Since a winter coat is the most important piece you wear over your clothing, I shop for coats that are trendy enough to make a fashion statement alone and a coat that I can wear with sweaters too. The details, fabric and length are other things I consider before making a purchase. So when I noticed this leather trim tweed winter coat by Cynthia Rowley, while thrifting at Intown Thrift Store, I knew that I hit the jackpot. This coat met all of my needs! It retails for $400, but the thrift store price was under $7. This tweed coat is my go-to winter coat when I leaving home to head to work. It is a perfect piece that I can wear during the daytime. Plus if I have to meet up with friends for an after-work happy hour date, I still look very stylish.
