We’ve been having quite a cold snap here in Winnipeg lately. But, thankfully, I had a serendipitous trip to The Salvation Army Thrift Store a few weeks back when I found some key pieces that have kept me both warm and stylish through it all.
First is this camel coloured merino wool sweater dress by BCBG. It’s fitted on top, super soft, really warm, and basic enough to take me from the Christmas shopping to a Holiday party! I looked for it online just for kicks and discovered that it is now on sale for $143 down from $387! Or in my case, $15.99 at my trusty thrift store. (Cue that IKEA “start the car!” commercial!)
The same trip lead me to a dyed raccoon jacket for $26! I knew in theory, of course, that fur is warm but boy does this thing keep me toasty! It’s unlined, has no tags and may be a bit rough around the edges but this unpolished edge keeps it casual enough that I can wear it everywhere and with everything. Which I totally have!
