Pleated And Tailored

I haven't been thrifting in a while due to work. Imagine all those pieces I missed grabbing from the hands of other thrifters! And I'm telling you there are a lot more thrifters now. I know because some of the most hardcore and die-hard thrifting addicts are my friends. But I still manage to find really nice pieces that suit my sensibility. And I'm so happy with these two finds a couple weeks ago.

My friend Blady dragged me for an early thrifting jaunt and I found this black Pleats Please Issey Miyake long coat. It's something I've been wanting to add to my wardrobe. I saw a similar piece in Bangkok and I didn't have the budget for it at that time. I've got some few pieces of Pleats Please and it's really practical to wear. What I love about Please Please is it's so versatile for travelling. No need to iron and it's so easy to wash. My friend Marie is possibly the biggest Issey Miyake collector of his pleated stuff. And she almost wears Issey Miyake everyday!

I lost count how many Yohji Yamamoto piece I have but it never seems enough. I dragged my friend Toefi this time for some thrifting time and I was ecstatic to find this double breasted jacket. It's from the Y's line and it's just perfect for me.
