Vintage Pink Coat

February 5, 2014

This is a look I put together to send in to “How I Wear My”… a fun monthly round-up hosted by Adrienne of The Rich Life on a Budget and Jill of Everything Just So.   If you haven’t already, you’ve got to check it out … here.

I tried to channel a little Audrey and Jackie O with a vintage pink coat, classic black pumps, and lady-like leather gloves.  I added some modern twists with rolled skinny jeans and a funky studded clutch.  

This coat has been getting a lot of attention between this post and my last one on mixing red, pink, & leopard …. here.  Since it’s a vintage coat from Mom’s closet, I can’t tell you where to get it.  But here are few cute ones I saw online (links provided).

And you never know when a trip to the thrift store might yield a vintage treasure!  Or even a trip to the flea market!  Check out Kim’s flea market tips at Northern California Style … here  !!

    Hey dear, love that this was your moms. It's lovely on you and she would be so proud you are wearing it so stylishly! I would adore a pink coat! You also look so sweet with the bun. Loving it. Thanks so much always for your links. I'm flattered and grateful sweet friend. xxoo Kim

      A link for flea market tips just fit in perfectly! Yeah, love that this pink coat was mom's. And thanks about the bun …. it's a sloppy one, but I hope that makes it look "effortless" … (in reality, it's the best I can do!) 😉

    Audrey with a bit of a rocker edge, I'd say!! And it's not surprising that your vibrant coat is attracting a lot of attention…it really is stunning!! Your mom was certainly a lady of great taste (which you obviously inherited!!) 🙂
