Banana Republic trench coat; Vintage dress; Target tights; Urban Outfitters flats

While reading other fashion blogs, I always notice the number of items that were "thrifted", or found at a vintage store. I have always been jealous, because since I live in a small town, there aren't many options for quality vintage shopping. I've always loved the idea of vintage, of having something that nobody else has. Everytime I go on vacation I try to find the coolest vintage store and search it for the perfect item. I can easily find vintage scarves, pins, and jewelry on eBay, but I'm always wary of buying vintage clothing since you can't try it on before you buy it. While doing a weekend shopping trip with my girlfriends, we came across a store that had just recently opened. As I walked in I realized this was the shop I had been forever searching for! Although it was small and had a limited selection of vintage clothing, I managed to find this gorgeous feather print red dress. Fall has finally shown its true colors (literally!) and I had to slip tights on underneath so my legs didn't freeze. I then put on my shoes adorned with feathers to match the dress. I topped it all off with my beautiful khaki trench coat.
