Thrift and Shout on the News: Coats Segment

Every 4th Monday I have the privilege of being on Fox 28 news' Good Day Columbus at 9:45am. I bring 3 models and dress them and me head to toe in clothing from the thrift store. This month the topic was coats and outerwear. Here are the outfits I put together:
Christen Nelson, Sara Carlisle, Me, and Heather Evans

Coat: Volunteers of America $2.99
Target dress: Goodwill $4.99
scarf: Goodwill $2.99
Via Spiga heels Goodwill $3.99

Gap faux fur jacket: Goodwill $4.99

Espirit coat: Goodwill $7.99
Target top: Salvation Army $2.99
H&M jeans: Goodwill $4.99

Target bomber jacket: Goodwill $4.99
top: Goodwill $3.99
boots: Goodwill $3.99

The weather is turning colder so now is the time to start looking for coats at the thrift store! Get them now so you are ready and so you get first pick! I see great coats all the time while thrifting! Sometimes they need dry cleaned but it's still a good deal to get a coat for $5 and pay $10 to get it cleaned! And don't forget to check the kids section if you are on the smaller side. The coat Sara is wearing is from the kids section at Volunteers of America!

  1. This is a fun post! Can't belive the coat on Sara is from the kid's section. Must remember that next time out thrifting.

  2. You all look great! Great finds!

  3. Great job, Lindsey - I love the bomber jacket and your lace-up boots. You all look like you spent a lot of $$$$ on your new clothes! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  4. My biggest "scores" have come from the coat department but I've never considered checking out the girls' section! I'll send my husband your way when he starts complaining that he's being squeezed out of the coat closet - again. Heheh.

  5. Love that orange coat and your leather jacket! Great stuff!

  10. Really great looks! The faux fur was wonderful!


  11. This is my first visit to your blog, and I love it! So cool that you have that television gig (I'm in radio myself). I'm so impressed with your Goodwill finds...I don't seem to have much luck at Goodwill, but I admit I don't go there on a regular basis.

    By the way, you're gorgeous!

  12. I love your tv segments! I wish I could actually watch them.

    I find coats to be fairly easy to find thrifting, altho sometimes they can be expensive! I really like your bomber coat. I have always wanted one like that but I'm just not sure if I will get enough wear out of it.

  13. I'm amazed at the low prices you paid for these coats. You've certainly shown a side of fashionable that doesn't require that you spend a lot of money.

  14. Dear Beautiful Redhead,

    I'm your 500th follower! Woohoo! Found you through the blog hop and I'm excited to read more from you! Please check me out, too if you get the chance!

  15. My husband has officially banned me from bringing one more coat home..when you are a thrifter...coats and blazers bring the most joy haha LOVE all of them...and love you! Thanks for linking up..I always love looking at your find...makes me not feel so bad for being totally addicted ;O)


  16. That's so cool! You're like, famous! :-) I lived in Ohio for 2 years and was thinking that I would have seen your news segment if I was still there...but then I realized that I was in Akron and probably wouldn't get Columbus news! Really great coats btw!

  17. The coat section is one of my favorites at the thrift store. I've scored some really great outerwear at rock bottom prices. In fact, I don't think I will ever buy another piece of outerwear at retail price again. And I have that same Target bomber-I got it on super clearance!

  18. Your way to enlighten everything on this blog is actually pleasant, everyone manage to efficiently be familiar with it, Thanks a great deal.
