Can we go thrift shopping?

I’ve always been a lover of thrifting-there’s just something about owning something that once was someone else’s,
because everything has a story.

Being home for Christmas, I’ve been able to make several trips to the local thrift-PCDC. I’ve posted about PCDC before, simply because they really do have the best deals and steals.
A few days before Christmas, I decided to stop by looking for a few flannels,
and I came across probably the greatest thrift store find E V E R.

I walked in and spotted |literally| a leopard coat.
I almost died.
I ALWAYS see bloggers posting about their leopard coat finds and I get so jealous, since every fur I find at a thrift either has a billion tears/damage done, smells like a cigar club, and/or is in terrible shape. 
This coat was different. 

I immediately went to it, probably a little quicker than I should-I think the entire store was wondering what on earth was wrong with me, running in PCDC. I ran my fingers through the soft fur, realizing quickly that it was genuine rabbit fur, dyed like leopard, so that was a mega plus. It had HUGE shoulder pads-which wasn’t a problem-I like a little padding every now and then. 
I tried it on in front of the teeny-tiny mirror and OHMIGOSH IT FIT!!! My heart did a little flip-flip inside, because this was crazy.
The arms were just my length, with fitted wrists, it had a semi-cropped length,
coming to the top of my hips and the fur was in excellent condition.

did I mention that it was $20???

I looked in my wallet and sadly only had 10, so I asked the cashier if they could hold it (no) so I cringed putting it back on the hanger while rushing to the bank. I got back and the beauty was still there! I grabbed it up and purchased it, along with a black/white checkered flannel. 
The fur really was the steal of the century.

A few days after christmas my cousins were in, so obviously I took them thrifting. 
The thrift was having a sale, so I definitely took advantage of it!
I got some ahhhhhmazing steals, totaling to $11 (can I get a whoop-whoop).
So needless to say, the thrift was good to me.

[don’t mind my messy floor, I’ve been sewing a dress which I’ll soon post about]
A denim blazer with a boyfriend fit [which I’ve been searching for] + a lovely plaid blazer that’s wool, also boyfriend fit.

A dotted chambray shirt + a wool/polyester sweater-like shirt

2 tees-one army green, the other khaki colored

and possibly the coolest denim vest ever. 
It’s definitely western, and has white/red/blue fabric with the most rad detailing.

Have the happiest 2014, I know I’ll try to!
