This coat might be my favorite thrift store find to date. I plucked it absent-mindedly off the rack, simply because I was intrigued by the print, but it wasn't until I tried it on and saw the artfully pleated shoulders that I knew I had to take this baby home. The mobster-like double-breasted cut didn't hurt either. Did I mention it was $25?

PS It made my day (evening now, technically) to see the lovely award that GingerSnap gave me. She has the most enviable jewelry collection and I always enjoy seeing her preppy and polished looks!
