A Girl Can Never Have Too Many Coats

I feel that a girl can never have too many coats. Maybe this is because I own an embarrassing number of coats, but regardless, coats are just divine. They can complete your outfit or add that extra flare or give your outfit that oomph of edginess. Vintage coats are one of the simplest ways to incorporate a vintage piece into your wardrobe. Most of the time they are easy to find and there are options in almost every price range. The best thing about coats, especially vintage ones, is the classic designs they feature. Many cuts and shapes never go out of style and fashion is very reciprocal.

I bought this coat over the summer and have been waiting ever so patiently to wear it. It is more than likely a homemade or custom tailored piece, as it has no label to it or signs that there was ever one present. It probably is from the 50's because of its swing design, but somehow when I look at it, the late 30's come to mind. At any rate, I am in love with the built in scarf, which is right above the mink, tucked into the coat. I also love the single side closure, giving it an off beat feel to it.

I must agree, never enough coats! I celebrate coats every Tuesday on my blog in fact- because I can't stand not wearing a new one each week all fall and winter! Yours is lovely.
