Vintage Coats.

Winter today, fall tomorrow.
Winter tomorrow, fall today.
Welcome to the schizo world of weather! Luckily mother nature finally permitted me to wear a coat so I could enter the Weardrobe winter contest for a chance at 500 buckaroos. I really don't think I'll win, but who can blame a girl for trying!

I don't know what it is with me pairing big 'old heavy coats with tall, funny hats, but for some reason I think the two go hand in hand. I guess a warm body calls for a warm brain!

Oh yeah, finally got new bangs too.

I don't know, that red coat could win it!

Lara said...

The red coat is beautiful! My mother has a fur hat just like the first one. I am not sure where she got it but she never wears it anymore and I cant stand anything fur so it just sits in a closet at her house. It is gorgeous though. Maybe I will get over my fur hatred for the sake of fashion...but probably not. :(

Dylana said...

Both coats are wonderful! I cannot choose which one I love more! The red is just so eye catching!

COMPLETELY envious of your sassy new hair cut and fabulous fur hats. i especially love the coat with the fur trim on the shoulders - why oh why don't we have modern clothing that reflects the feminity and sensuality of vintage clothes?

xo.
