This week’s Reader ReFash comes from Trish in New Jersey! It’s a good bit chilly there. I mean, that town will rip the bones from your back! It’s a suicide rap! She’s gotta get out while she’s young!
Sorry…too much Bruce Springtsteen at too young an age! New Jersey is actually quite lovely, I hear (They don’t call it the garden state for nothin’).
Anywho…Trish had these two coats:
I’ve been seeing trenches with leather sleeves and have really wanted one but wasn’t willing to spend the money on another coat. I knew this would be a cool project for class but didn’t have the pieces until I raided my old clothes at my parents house.
My sister had a pleather jacket that she used to wear from Limited Too (just to give you an idea of how old that coat is) and I had an olive-ish trench that I just never wore. Fortunately my mind put the two together!
And here’s Trish in her gorgeous creation!

Well done, Trish!
