Rosh Does: A BadGal and a Puffer Jacket

Rihanna, aka Badgalriri, aka style icon left us all S.H.O.O.K when she stepped out last week in Paris wearing an oversized baby pink puffer jacket by designer Ella Boucht. The blogs, the press and social media erupted as the Bajan fashion killer graced us with yet another icon look.

It is inevitable that versions of this puffer jacket will feature across high-street fashion stores in the upcoming winter months and so I was on a personal hunt to find a sustainable replica.

Ask and you shall receive! As I trawled through the many charity shops in Luton Town Centre. I found this black puffer jacket in Salvation Army, hung limply in the Mens coat section between a moth eaten tweed jacket and a peeling leather jacket. Surprisingly the puffer jacket was in really good condition minus a few marks on the collar, which came out after having it dry-cleaned. I literally thought Christmas had come early when the price tag had £6 stamped on it.

As an avid thrift shopper, I love finding vintage pieces that the modern day fashion world has revived. Even better because the vintage finds are usually a lot cheaper and completely unique. If you live in the Bedfordshire area I would totally recommend taking a stroll around the numerous charity shops dotted in and around Luton Town Centre. Over the years I have shopped designer clothes, coats and bags as well as vintage tops, jeans and … all of which have received compliments from friends and family (expect from my Jamaican nan who cusses every time, that I have wasted my money on dead peoples’ clothes…eek!).

I teamed the jacket with ripped jeans and greyish black Dr Martens for a more tomboyish look as to be honest, I was not feeling particularly girly. As I type this, I am already thinking of the outfits I will recreate with this jacket. I’ll keep you posted!
