Vintage Dress Coats

It happens every year. I get all gussied up in a sexy dress, killer heels and dramatic makeup for a dinner out and I top the look off with...my black wool overcoat? It's even worse at a slightly chilly event like a gallery show where I end up covered most of the time. Why poshify if no one sees it? Thankfully, I bought a great purple trench that will work on special occasions. If I hadn't come across it, I was fully planning on buying a vintage dress coat this fall.

I love the green coat! Such a fantastic color, and a great way to brighten up a world of dingy black, grey, and brown coats. (he he, brown coats!)

thanks so much for featuring my green opera coat! Every time I look at it, I consider hoarding it for myself!

I desperately need a winter coat. I have a houndstooth one, but it is just too fancy for everyday activity!

Thank you for mentioning my Cream Cape! It is one of the most gorgeous coats I've had the pleasure of selling.
