The Vintage Closet







I have been looking for a vintage coat in a neutral caramel color, but as of late,  I have not found one.  While on my coat mission, I discovered a local thrift boutique called the Drake Closet.  This organization supports women and their young children going through hard times get back on their feet.  In this quaint little boutique you will find everything dry-cleaned, pressed, organized and nothing is priced higher than $25. It is amazing not only for their cause, but for the quality of their items! I found this pretty vintage red coat and a vintage plum swing coat for $15 each along with a leather bag for $5. The Drake Closet makes shopping for a good cause such a pleasure, I'm really looking forward to going back. 

Thanks so much for reading!

What I'm wearing:  Coat: Vintage // Sweater: Gap // Jeans: Zara // Shoes: Enzo, Nordstrom Rack // Bag: Banana Republic // Scarf: J.Crew // Necklace: J.Crew
