For years I have collected vintage coats- and it’s ridiculous. I live in a place that seldom sees fridgid winter weather (with the exclusion of last winter when I brought home an infant of course). I have enough vintage coats to wear a different one every week of the year now. It started with just one.
I had the standard new coats, black pea coat, raincoat, one new trench… then I saw the lovely cream car coat at the thrift store. It needed some tlc from the dry cleaner, but came back good as new. I started looking at every opportunity for one of a kinds coats- and found them. I don’t remember when I found this little leather coat. It has tie closures at the wrist and waist, and a hood in back, all leather. And I love the color for fall.
Too bad it’s so warm again this week- but I can wear it in the mornings without looking totally silly.
How many coats do you own? Is it an embarrassing number or a practical one?
