Paul Costelloe Vintage Find

I think second hand shops are great for picking up pieces, from vintage clothing to designer labels there is something for everyone. I myself, particularly like the vintage finds which add a sophistication to anybody’s style. It’s fun browsing through the rails, as you never know what you might find among the vast array of clothes. I like the way different types of clothing are all jumbled up together all in one shop. One of my favourite charity shops would be Oxfam Ireland. I like the way the stock is well organised and they also have a book section, bric a brac section and cd’s and dvd’s are nicely stacked along the shelf’s.

This time I did not come out empty handed (this rarely happens anyway). I came across a rose pink Paul Costelloe dressage crop blazer priced at 7 euro, at that price it was a steal I know I had to get it. I would describe the condition of it like brand new, no threads pulled or anything so it’s all good πŸ™‚ The size itself states a UK14 but it does run smaller than this, more onto a size UK10. The colour is so versatile meaning it can be worn as a casual look with a top and jeans or more of a dressy look with a black dress. I decided to go with a dressy look as I brought this little black number recently from miss pap and thought it matched up well with it. I also teamed it, with this leather metallic silver purse I got from River Island.

  1. Nice little find! I also liked your review of the hair extension – very thorough and the picture shows what a good match it is to your hair color. I’ll have a chance to sleuth for finds in Ireland this summer – can’t wait! Thanks for looking in on my true vintage closet – could keep you busy for a while.
