Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday
I thrifted this check tweed coat a while ago last year here and was going to shorten the sleeves but changed my mind. I really, really dislike alterations of any kind and can’t even remember why I wanted to do it in the first place. Anyway, it feels sooo good to wear it now. As with most vintage items, they look better worn with modern basics. It’s a little big on me but I like the roominess although I cannot always carry off the *oversized* look. The brand is Wetherall and you can find them readily on *bay where I found this coat. The material is superb quality, superior to what is available now I daresay and the construction a joy to behold!Being petite means vintage clothes and accessories fit better to my scale and shape. Vintage coats are among my very best finds. This coat is deliciously warm! I’ve got on a total pick n mix today: vintage silk scarf, Zara Girls jumper, Gap 1969 Always Skinny jeans and Belle Sigerson Morrison suede wedge booties. These green booties don’t seem to clash with the coat maybe because of the ochre yellow part of the check?The lines of the Hermès Dalvy here, here and here always fill me with happiness! I’m really working through my closet to mix and match the old, really old and newer, but still old pieces if you know what I mean 🙂
