calivintage 's Thoughts:

today i finally get to reveal my newest vintage acquisition: this crazy beautiful 1940’s olive green coat! it was one of those truly serendipitous moments when i ran into mercy vintage at the last minute before my trip, looking for a fun little party dress. of course i ended up browsing through the coats on my way to the dressing room, and of course this coat popped right out at me. i tried it on thinking the big puff sleeves would probably swallow up my frame, but to my surprise, it fit like a glove! and so my poor wallet cried a single tear as i coughed up the dough…

but i’m happy to invest in a few statement coats here and there. and i’m quite pleased that while this coat is from the 1940’s, it’s still perfectly in tune with the current military trend we’ve been seeing in many of the fashion editorials. did you see the vogue march issue?
