Wool & Black Velvet

It is getting colder in the south of Spain, so time to wear my favourite vintage coat. Pure new wool and black velvet bought in a market for 1 euro. After being in the cleaners (5,50 euros) it was as good as new.
Anybody can go into a shop, produce a credit card and buy, but the thrill of rescueing a treasure like this is difficult to describe.
Empieza a hacer frío en el sur de España, así es que llega la hora de lucir mi abrigo favorito. Pura lana virgen y terciopelo negro comprado en un mercadillo por 1 euro. Después de pasar por la superlimpieza (5, 50) estaba como nuevo.
Cualquiera puede entrar en una tienda, extender una tarjeta y comprar, pero la emoción de rescatar un tesoro como éste,  es una sensación indescriptible.
      Mil besos

I think you just coined a new phrase for me, Sacramento...the idea of going to a thrift shop to "rescue a treasure" really appeals to me! This coat is fabulous and looks gorgeous on you! So sad, that you can't get Project Runway in Spain!

FashionFreak dijo...

¡¡Pero qué maravilla de abrigo!! Me encanta, y aún encima por sólo 1 euro, es el chollo-joya del siglo jaja

Y tienes toda la razón, no hay nada como la emoción de ir a un mercadillo o una thrift store y encontrar alguna joyita olvidada. Yo siempre digo que aunque fuese millonaria seguiría yendo al mercadillo en busca de chollos jaja

1 beso!

Me encanta el abrigo, es super bonito. Y con esos pendientes hace que el cuello del abrigo tenga su protagonismo.

Ahora, lo que es digno de mención es POR TAN SOLO 1EURO??????????? Sacramento estamos tardando en conocernos jajajaja, necesito un asesoramiento intensivo en búsqueda de tesoros

Un beso enorme y que tengas un GRAN comienzo de semana

No me lo puedo creer, es precioso, me encanta el color y el corte es muy elegante, lo luces de maravilla, a mi me encanta rescatar tesoros, solo echo de menos que hayan más mercadillos por mi zona aunque lo que más me gusta rescatar son muebles y cosas de decoración :)

He tenido un principio de año difícil... pero ya está superado, un beso.

The Foolish Aesthete dijo...

I am always astonished when I see your beautiful 1 euro purchases! Totally agree on the thrills of rescuing treasures, and you are an absolute pro in this. And I love those vintage illustrations! I was just in the basement stacks of a community Library and discovered all these old magazines -- Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Paris couture papers, -- all from the '30s, perhaps even '20s, and on. It was an exciting discovery for me =) xxxxx

Rosy dijo...

Tienes razón, la emoción de encontrar alguna joya perdida en un mercadillo es una sensación indescriptible! Te entiendo perfectamente, ese abrigo es tan bonito...

Pull Your Socks Up! dijo...

Oh sweetie you are KILLING me in your rescued coat!!! The beautiful rosy colour trimmed with velvet makes you look like you should be ordering cocktails and bossing the adoring waiters waiting on your every whim. The earrings!! Oh what a glorious, glorious bargain - I adore you!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo

¡¡¡Hola Sacramento!!! ¿Recuerdas las uñas metalizadas que me enseñaste y me preguntaste cómo se conseguían? Pues he descubierto que son unas pegatinas de essence, hablo de ello hoy en el blog, pero también doy un truquillo para potenciar los metalizados con un esmalte plata normal.

Mas vale tarde que nunca, un besoooo.
