No More Black Coats!

If I could change anything about winter clothes, it would be the amount of black coats that get sold every year.  Black coats, with black boots over your black pants and top….UGH.  I love black as a base colour used sparingly, NOT as a lifestyle choice.  Black used to be chic and set people apart way back when, but now it makes you look like every other person on the bus.  And winter is dark enough without a sea of black to look at!

Enough ranting, here’s my solution: But a vintage coat.  I sell some, yes, but that’s not why I think you should get one.  You should get one because the shapes, fabrics and colours of coats from the 50s and 60s are about a zillion times more interesting and flattering than most things that are sold today.  Here, let me show you what I mean:

So if you’re in the market for a new coat, consider going vintage this year.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised 🙂
