I wear your Granddad's clothes

January 10, 2015

Nope, I can't quite believe I just quoted Macklemore as the title either. 'Thrift Shop' can't be further away from my usual music taste, but the it just seemed very fitting to this outfit (plus, I have to admit that the song it quite catchy!)
My 'new' vintage jacket was given to my by a friend of my grandparent's, and it's handmade from the 1980's. It's a bit oversized on me, but it is the warmest, cosiest item of clothing I own- even more so than my polar bear coat!
The top is a recent purchase from the Boohoo sale, I just love the boxy shape and tapestry floral fabric which is the perfect weight for a transitional piece from Winter to Spring in a few months. Isn't it strange how crafts like tapestry have been around since the 15th century, and even though the purpose has changed from decoration to clothing, people still love the nostalgia and design!
This satchel is also a sale purchase, which I picked up in Primark for just £5. The embossed patterns caught my attention first, but when I was the pretty paisley lining, I was sold!
Top: Boohoo, Jeans and Bag: Primark, Hat: Topshop, Coat: Vintage
