Celery green coat
A sneak peak at my beautiful new coat I treated myself to this afternoon from Mod Human Vintage on Etsy. I've wanted a midcentury coat for so long but as it's quite tricky to find them in smaller sizes I thought I'd pounce now and stow it away for next winter. It's incredible what quality you really can afford when you buy vintage: when an acrylic coat with a viscose lining will set you back about £85 in Topshop, £38 really isn't too bad for real wool and satin. And if it's looking this good at approximately fifty-five years old, it's clearly built to last! Let's just hope celery green is my colour.
Have you acquired any beautiful vintage recently?
