Fab Vintage Clothing Find...Fashion over 60

I love shopping for vintage items...and many times I come home empty handed but on a good day I will find at least one treasure.

Yesterday I stopped in at a local church Thrift Store...
called The Friendly Octopus.

Who came up with that name?

I started in the housewares area and didn't see anything that was exciting so I headed over the the clothing section. It was busy! Lots of people were perusing the racks and I had to exercise patience as I moved carefully and methodically through the crowded room.

 Jacket by Daniel Hechter
(those spots you see are on the mirror not the jacket)

Zips at the sleeve
there are some wear marks and a few scuffs on the jacket
but I think they give it a bit of an edgy vibe.

I am not sure if it is leather or possibly pleather 
(no tags)
 it's super soft and not too heavy.

I'm planning on wearing it with my new jeans and a vintage Beatles tee shirt
with my chelsea boots.

but not too old to have fun with fashion.

Do you shop for vintage clothes and collectibles?
What was your best find?

Hope your week is ticking along nicely.
It's been a sunny week so far...
 I purchased some beautiful tulips for our main floor bathroom.
Spring is definitely on the way!
