One of the reasons I have a closet full of fall jackets is because I take care of my things and tend to have them a long time, another reason is because I love thrifting.
These are some of my autumn jackets, six of them were thrifted, can you guess which ones? (Answers below.)
I love red jackets to brighten up dreary days.
This colourful jacket by Parsley and Sage warms up cool weather.
Black goes with everything and this coat is light weight for not-too-cold autumn days.
I only wear faux fur because I love the look without cruelty to our animal friends.
The leopard and tiger print are both velvet.
R.E.D. Valentino jacket, made in Italy–this warm jacket can take me into winter weather. It has a thermal insulation, feather-free.
My favourite jacket–winter white faux fur by Joseph Ribkoff, made in Canada. It has a hood and two-way zipper. Always makes me feel like I’m going somewhere special. The quality is superb, I’ve had it for 10 years!
Herringbone jacket (with toggles and hood) looks like a vest because of the black sleeves. My daughter Jean explains why we don’t wear wool. Jean also has a fabulous post about wool alternatives.
This 3/4 length coat has a mini houndstooth print, it’s a feminine, flare style with big silver buttons on one side.
I’ve always loved double-breasted jackets. The ruffles and belt adds details that I look for when buying clothes.
I can’t wear this jacket on very cold autumn days but it’s great for mild weather in springtime too. I’m already fed up with the freezing temperatures and winter hasn’t even begun!
When skies are grey, this blue jacket from Germany cheers me up. It reminds me of an awesome summer in Germany every time I wear it. It has a hood and draw-string waist.
I bought this grey jacket in Seattle and it’s waterproof with a hood.
And now for the answer to my question: the first coat is from Drizzle and Shine, my daughter’s eco boutique in Seattle, the next six jackets are thrifted, the rest were bought new or gifted.
