Nearly Spring

I choose to welcome all the good things that life has to offer.
Hello March! I know weather wise, you don't always deliver the way I hope you will, but then again, neither do April and May, so I will just have to be content that you are here and bring the promise of spring and warmer weather.

This vintage London Fog trench continues to be the best $3 I ever spent at a thrift store, I'll have had it going on seven years now. I'm also quite pleased with my black tote, even though I've noticed that carrying a tote makes me a crazy packrat. Every weekend I dump it out and always seem to be surprised when I find half a dozen pens, several lipsticks, and usually a spoon. Small bags force me to be the organized person I want to be. However a small closet just forces me to take over every possible surface in the bedroom to store all my bags.

  1. Gotta love a great thrifting find! And I love it paired with the striped sweater, such a great almost-spring look!

  2. $3? Seriously? I'm so jealous!! No thrift store near me will price adult coats that low.

  3. That's exactly why I love thrift shopping so much!! You get such great deals on interesting pieces!! And if you don't love them, at least you didn't spend an arm & a leg, right?

  4. Great classic look. The stripes and trench are just perfect!

  5. I'm so excited that Spring is finally approaching! You look great in this trench coat, very elegant!

  6. I have ever been able to find a trench coat that was what I wanted it to be at any price, so I am beyond envious of the fact that you found this one - not only for $3 but seven years ago, and still have it going strong! It's such a perfect classic piece. As for the tote bag, I totally sympathise - I often carry one even if I have almost nothing in it, just in case I need to pick up something - anything at all - along my way to wherever I'm going. It gets a bit ridiculous.

  7. I cannot believe the insane deal you got on that coat - it's amazing.

  9. LOL I love that you normally find a spoon in your purse at the end of the week! Gorgeous tote, btw! Love love the scalloped edges. And the trench - what a steal!


  10. Loving these classic pieces and look! Hard to believe it is March.

  12. This look is so classic and chic! I love it! And I can totally relate to the tote problems. I have no less than 15 lipsticks in my bag right now.

  13. I remember when you bought that trench !
    Haha, its so funny that you'd have a spoon in your bag. I too carry too much in my bag including a mini gorilla tripod and my small Canon.

  14. Absolutely amazing! Only $3! That is an awesome trench. Love your tote.

  16. Spring has arrived and so has the new fashion styles. With the arrival of a new season comes a new type of wear and new opportunities for unique fashion trends. And the price at which you got this superb deal gives other people a chance to find & grab the best deals available so they can enjoy trendy fashion at affordable prices. I would say the concept of a watch and bag on the same side gives it a royal look.
