best thrift find of the month #1 APRIL

Posted by Emma Salter On 18:17
I'm probably the worst person for bragging about my bargain buys, but I literally couldn't hide this one. I've decided to start a regular feature on my blog called 'best thrift find of the month' as I buy some much charity shop stuff lately that I don't have time to take photos of it all and prefer to keep it separate to my high street bargains and thought this would be a good way to do it! Anyway... behold, this camel boyfriend style coat by the one and only... Karl Lagerfeld.

"Best Thrift Find of the month"

If you haven't got a clue who Karl Lagerfeld is then I suggest you take the night off and google him. He is a German fashion designer based in Paris being head designer and creative director for CHANEL!! But this coat is obviously vintage, as the label says KL for Karl Lagerfeld. I'm assuming this is his first label but if there are any Karl diehard fans out there or even fashion historians that know the history behind this coat do correct me if I'm wrong! I was looking for a camel coat for next winter funnily enough and was instantly drawn to this one in the British Heart Foundation a train ride from where I live. I always scan the label to see if I'm getting a good bargain or not when I'm thrift shopping but when I read this I couldn't believe my eyes, I held it out from the rack and examined it fully...

It's perfect condition, only there are two small holes on the right breast where I can only imagine a brooch would have been otherwise it's just like brand new! It's a size 22, which is double my size but surprisingly looks ok on, I'm going to get it altered if I can and when I have time to get round to doing it! But I am literally so in love, it has a gold button in the centre and even the spare is still on the washing label! It has two pockets either side and a collar as you can see above. 

£14.99 was a little steep for me in a chairty shop but the fact it was vintage Karl Lagerfeld I would of been a fool to let it go! I've never owned anything designer before and this, well, it's topped any other thrift find ever! Although I did see Kavitas latest charity find and was a little jealous! But I plan on keeping this forever, it really is a gem and I am so in love with it! I was hoping to wear it to Winchester fashion week next week with fellow blogger Becky from Life in Lipstick but I might save it till' it's altered, I'm not sure!

What do you think? Have you found anything designer like this in a charity shop before?
