Double Up

Suede Jacket - Danier, gift from Sheila
Dress - Vintage
Tights - MP, sockdreams
Boots - Natacha, ebay

The first outfit didn't last long - I felt really under the weather on Wednesday. I managed to get a picture of it, but it quickly turned into a 'double plaid' day where I hopped into my mismatched pajamas and crawled back into bed.

Dress - Moschino, etsy
Tee - Esprit, thrifted
Jeans - Levi, thrifted
Earrings - gifted
Army Flats - Trippen

This look lasted a little longer, carrying me to a few errands. I've been hunting the perfect trench dress. I think I've found a winner in this moschino one. Perfect neutral, mid weight fabric, nicely placed pockets. I'm not sure how it'll be worn solely on its own, but I think it is long enough to be comfortable. If not, it's still a perfect layering piece.

Talking about Big Thrifting Adventures - I've been admittedly more and more reserved about my purchasing habits, but my brain spiraled out of control when I found this. It's a Sherlock Coat!!! The herringbone wool fabric caught my eye, and I kept saying "no way it will fit" but sure enough it's a perfect fit through the shoulders and sleeve length. Hitting nearly to my ankles, which I love - LOVE long coats. It's probably too close to spring to wear it until next cold season, but for $9 I couldn't leave it behind. 

The best part to me is that the label said "Made in the USA".  I'm not only sticking to my Secondhand pledge, but managing to stick to buying US made goods. 

I also picked up a "sherlock wallpaper" printed blouse, but it's already been popped into the washer so pics to come later for that.


  1. I love that orange dress with stripey tights, and I also love that Moschino dress as a long vest! I need to look for things like that - it really looks cool, it's versatile, and different. Great style!

  2. I love that first look - so sorry you're not feeling good. Adore the Sherlock coat and can't wait to see the blouse! It feels good to stick to the pledge, doesn't it?

  3. I really love that first outfit, I'm sorry it didn't last long since you didn't feel great! I hope you are feeling better! Your Sherlock coat is pretty awesome!

  4. I actually really love the first outfit as well. That orange and denim is a great look. But the vest in the second look is really great too! Congrats on the new coat!

  5. Yay for the cool Sherlock Coat! I hope you're feeling better.

  6. Well--you look adorable for being under the weather!!

    The Sherlock coat is AMAZING!!! What a find!!

  7. What a coat! Very well done. Glad it fits your pledge too.

    I was travelling on the underground in London recently, reading Sherlck Holmes, and we passed through Baker St! The tourists on the carriage with me thought it was a gret coincidence :-)

  8. Hope you're feeling better. That's crazy that you snagged that awesome coat for only $9! I'd love to see you do a whole Sherlock outfit.

  9. That orange dress, that oooorrrrange dresssssss. *makes grabby hands*

  10. A Sherlock coat!! Hooray for you - I can't wait to see it on you. Love your new layering-dress too. Hope you feel 100% soon.

  11. I like the orange on you. I still have Sherlock on my Netflix cue, and need to watch it. I have a few friends who really like it.

  12. Hi Megan! I hope you are feeling better now! I love the orange on you as well! I love the layered dress. And I love the Sherlock coat! For 9$! Are you kidding! You could not leave it behind!


  13. Love the first outfit so much - but I'm a total sucker for stripey tights! I hope you're feeling better.

    Great score on the coat!


    You look beautiful in both pictures, but that vintage dress really pops. Love it with the striped tights.

    I hope you are feeling better.

  15. Ooh, a Sherlock coat! Fabulous. Not only is it stylish, but it looks warm too.

    I do hope you are feeling much better. It is the pits to get under the weather.

  16. Hee - double plaid day! My sick days are my "Superhero days" because I have BRIGHT blue jammie pants and a comic inspired shirt I wear when I need extra bed time! Hope you get a great weekend to make up for the sick day


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
