The best part about vintage shopping is the hunt.
The hunt for a one-of-a-kind piece that can make any outfit your own.
Here are some of my favorite vintage and second-hand finds, each of which makes its own statement.
1. Full-Length Wool Trench
As I mentioned in our previous post, it’s hard to go wrong with a trench coat.
Keep in mind that a good alterations specialist can transform the fit of a garment. When I found this wool trench it was huge and swallowed my body.
I had my tailors (at The Tailoring Room) take-in the sides and sleeves and now I look forward to throwing it over a suit whenever it’s cold and I want to feel extra “bossy”.
Bonus Tip: A long trench can always be chopped, and a raglan sleeve saves the tailor from having to re-cut the shoulder/armhole (which is a lot of work and $).
