Catwalk Thrift: Style on a Budget 2

Here’s another little beauty I picked up for next to nothing at my local thrift store. It’s not vintage but it really does have that vintage “feel” about it.  Made from 100% PVC in a lovely shade of deep red.  Looks great worn with jeans, trousers or skirts.  It’s fully lined with two side pockets and fastens at the front with a chunky red zip.


Wear the jacket with different accessories to keep it looking fresh and new.  All you need is a little imagination and a few accessories and bingo!  Enjoy the photos!
