So I'm a total sucker for catalogs. I get JCrew, Anthropologie, Free People, Urban Outfitters, IKEA, and a few others I can't even remember delivered to my house. And while I can almost never afford much in them, it always gives me new ideas for the current Season. And since my favorite season is Autumn, I've been rushing to check my mailbox each day.
Just this week I got the latest Free People catalog, and right there on page 2 was the most amazing outfit for Autumn. This awesome Londoner with the coolest hat, messy hair, skinny black jeans and gasp - a beautiful Leopard coat. I didn't want to look, but I just HAD to know the price. I check in the fine print - $248. Noooooo! Why oh why did I look??
But lo and behold, the very next day I thrifted this leopard print coat. Not quite the same, not quite as amazing, but a heck of a lot less money! And to that I say, thank you free catalogs. Fashion ideas and inspiration for free.
