Winning The Fashion Lottery, Continued

Want to know what I love even more than scoring a fabulous item while thrifting? Rediscovering a sensational piece in my closet. This Valentino coat, which I bought in March 2004 and only wore a few times, will be front and center this fall. #Don’tOverpurge

  • Stunning piece!

  • It’s lovely. I too love discovering items in my closet that I have not worn for a while but that now are au courant. I’m also looking for more occasions for which I can dress up!

  • LOVE! And love the sandals.

  • Amazing. Head to toe. X

  • Beautiful! I love shopping my own closet for things that are even better quality that what is currently available and this way I’m not adding to landfill!

  • Hooray for deep closets! Lovely! The great thing about outerwear is (trusting moths haven’t infiltrated) coats generally don’t get heavy wear and can last for decades! For months I have been contemplating my packlist for an upcoming trip that has a few stops and I decided to take an Hermes dress from 2000 (yes, you heard that right)! I figured, what am I waiting for? I originally bought it for a late summer trip, and I think it will be right at home this time around as well.

  • I bought the COS sandals after you posted them a few weeks ago! Love them… And you’re wearing it.

  • Marcheline Isabelle got me to take a closer look at COS — I bought two pairs of these sandals after I posted on them last month.

  • Seeing Preston give me a shout out must be how people feel when their name is in the newspaper! I love Cos. Some of the oldest pieces in my closet are by Cos. I was surprised to find out that they are part of H&M Group. This coat is divine and will look great paired with black accessories a la RHW. Marcheline Isabelle

  • Wow! This coat is gorgeous on you Preston! And loving the look of your home in the background – such a great creative vibe. Would you please do a home tour? 🙂

  • It’s gorgeous and I’m wondering why you haven’t been wearing it much before! I miss coats…a lot!

  • I purchased it for our renewal of vows in March 2004, then put it away. Perhaps I thought of it as a wedding dress of sorts. Honestly, I don’t know, but I’m looking forward to really wearing it.

  • What a beautiful find—and right in the best place to find it! Your sandals look smashing with the coat, too. I recently pulled out a Valentino piece that my grandmother gave me years ago. I don’t know how many decades she wore it. Talk about timeless.
