Brrr! I rarely post my personal outfits, but I love this vintage coat so much that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be photographed in it by Derrick Curry of Camera Play Photography. It was a fortunate find at Birmingham’s own Hanna Antiques Mall (sticker price: $60!). The mink collar and satin lining are in flawless condition, and it has its original buttons. I only had it dry cleaned; it was in perfectly wearable condition. It’s provenance? Loveman’s department store, which was a local treasure for many years.
It just makes me happy to wear it; vintage coats are made with special attention to quality and detail and have such character. Plus I hate the cold, so I do anything I can to feel cute in spite of frigid temps!
