Perfect coat in navy.


Yesterday I got to work to find the usual pile of merchandise on the floor to steam and put out on the floor. It's great because then I get first pick of things, and how I get lots of what's in my closet, the most memorable, bird hat. Well, I'm going through everything, steaming away, and at the bottom of the pile is my perfect black coat. In blue. I tried to think of a way I could dye it black, but finally came to accept that this will be my new navy coat, because it really did have everything I wished for, only in a different color. I'll be wearing navy for a while...


Coat, shoes- The Urban Eccentric

Purse-Michael Kors.

The rest-I don't even remember, that hat was a garage sale maybe...

Oh and I took the stockings back to the store, then spent the money at the bins. It was SO BUSY! I almost wanted to leave as soon as I got there, but then I started finding things which is always encouraging.

Aww, I like navy better than black! And that coat is so pretty . . . . I love that it's long enough to go over dresses too!

That is a lovely coat and would look great here in 1955 where I am currently living. I WANT that bird hat, which, of course, would look splendid here in the 50's with me. Nice blog and I love your style.

Yeah, the navy is really starting to grow on me, I'm wearing less black shoes (I need some red ones).

Thank you 50sgal :)
