It’s Thrifty Thursday! Today, it’s all about this fabulous thrifted Calvin Klein trench coat. I stopped by the Goodwill in Annandale, VA last weekend and I honestly didn’t plan on purchasing anything. Hubby was looking for some work slacks so my mission was to help him. While searching for his slacks, I glanced over at the rack next to me and saw the “Goodwill Boutique” sign – usually the items on those racks are a bit more expensive. I was able to sneak away for a quick second to take a look and that’s where I found this beauty.
I raised my eyebrow at he $20 price, only because I’m used to thrifting jackets and coats for under $10. However, this Calvin Klein trench coat was in impeccable condition, the color was pretty, it fit, and there was a (thin) lining inside the coat. I thought long and hard about this purchase because I wasn’t sure if I needed another winter coat. When I tried it on and showed it to hubby, he gave me the thumbs up and told me I should get it because a trench coat is a “wardrobe necessity”. LOL! I see someone’s been listening to my style advice/tips!
I really love how feminine the coat! This is a coat that can be worn year round and for any occasion. And hubby was right – a trench coat is a wardrobe necessity. I haven’t owned one in years so this purchase came at just the right time. I still can’t get over its condition. I mean there isn’t a scratch, smudge or tear in sight. And, it still had the exra button package attatcehd to the tag. Only thing missing was the original price tag!
So tell me, would you have “splurged” on this trench? Do you have a trench coat in your closet? Let me know! Enjoy the rest of your day and I’ll talk to you tomorrow. Be blessed!
