Faux fur find $1.00 "WOOhh"

I am sure the title expresses my excitement on this find.

The night before I found this coat I saw a video clip on youtube of a girl wearing a vintage fur coat. Then it dawned on me.. "Hmm that is something I do not own yet" Before I went to bed I told my guy "I want a faux fur coat" He looked at me and laughed! I swear he thought I was joking! "I WASN'T"
I told him in the morning I wanted to go to a second hand store that is near our house. Most are not open on Sunday's but this one is and they have a weekly $1.00 tag sale day. In all honesty unless you go at opening most of the stuff is VERY picked over and you may only end up with one item or none.

Well we went later in the afternoon, I looked over most of the store and then remembered what my purpose was for going there was. So I headed over to the coats browsed through one full line .. nothing.. walked to the other side saw barely any (Red tag) items.. Then I see a chocolate brown coat and OoHHh it was FURRY! Now I though there is NO WAY that is going to have a red tag. IT DID and I was super surprised and oh so excited. So I wanted to share with you this little fuzzy thing.

So I bet you can't guess what else I am gonna start scouring stores for now??
More fuzzy coats.. Oh and I seen some real cute faux hats that will match this one on Etsy I plan on finding one so when the leaves fall I will have something to protect my head.


  1. So cute! I have several and no cold weather really to support my addiction. Love the story!

    I found a local store that sells them for about $8.00 - $13.00 and under (Faux) of course but thats the way I like it. Everywhere else starts at about $25.00 So I am just waiting for a cute mid length to come in. Now I imagine all different sorts of winter looks with these fuzzy coats and I get all excited! haha

  7. Cute find ... and at a wonderful price, too!
