the moral wardrobe: valley thrift magic

Every time we visit my parents in Cincinnati, I insist on taking the short trip over to Valley Thrift, a massive secondhand shop just outside the city. It’s a must visit because I always (and I mean always) find the thing I’m looking for there.

In August, I found a pair of Sam Edelman Petty booties in nearly new condition for $4.99. This time around I was looking for a wool toggle coat that hit below the butt. I found this one, by Lands’ End, for $29.99. It’s fully lined, double-lined with wool at the chest, and has a thinsulate layer, too. Plus, it’s hooded! Perfection.


Ethical Details:
Sweater – thrifted; Tee (not shown) – Everlane; Boots – thrifted; Necklace – c/o Bought Beautifully; Coat – thrifted

I paired the coat with a thrifted sweater in my favorite color and some groovy 2000s-does-the-1970s Clarks boots, also thrifted. I hesitated buying these boots from the shop where I work for a few months because they’re pretty blatantly circa 2002, but then I started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so now I’ve fully embraced the fashions of the early 2000s. Tacky? Maybe. But that’s why fashion is fun.
