Adorable Vintage Koala Intarsia Knit Oversized Cardigan : Thriftstore Thursday


And this week's Thriftstore Thursday find features a total stunner.

If you read my 5 top tips for shopping at the thrift or charity shop you'll already know that when I see a vintage piece I just NEED in my life I turn into a little bit more than an excited toddler. 

This AMAZING bright yellow faux fur c.70s/80s parka with pretty bohemian style folk embroidery detailing is one of those vintage fashion finds that sent me into a tizzy.

I'm cheating a little because I actually purchased it on eBay from one of my favourite eBay vintage clothing stores, W Armstrong & Son...

But it was such a bargain it may as well be thrifted... and it literally just arrived in my collection... and in general makes me super happy!! So it counts OK

Price: £20 plus £5.95 P+P

And the applique detailing, studs and faux suede...

It's like Paddington Bear's duffle coat got drunk, met a beautiful Bohemian folk art tapestry who happens to loves abit of TexMex and Southern Belle inspiration on the side and they had this glorious coat baby!  

Seriously, I am just so in love with this coat.

Made by Cambridge Dry Goods this stunning folk emroidered Parka style jacket has a lush faux fur hood and even though it's pretty thin is surprisingly warm. It's perfect for changeable Spring weather. It's not waterproof but that's what umbrellas are for right?!

And check out those toggles and little bull heads!

Being vertically challenged I often find coats hang right down past my knees but this is just right! Bum covered but free moving knees!
