I can't help thinking this vintage gold coat looks a bit like the thermal blankets the Red cross hands out after a trail derails, or a tornado hits. I thought about posing beside the road with my belongings strewn across the lawn, but thought better of it as my neighbours might not appreciate the visual similarity. That's why I have a blog. Actually, I think the blankets the Red Cross hands out look better. I didn't need a blanket after our tornado, but they did give me a free tetanus shot and heavy-duty bin bags to clean up with. And coffee. Don't discount the importance of a hot cup of coffee after your house has been hit by a tornado. Anyway, my point is this might be a tricky item of clothing to wear.
I have been paying enough attention to know that this season, to look fully idiotic you need to wear your coat in a useless manner draped around you as though your home was just hit by a tornado (and you are waiting for your coffee and tetanus shot). "Hmmm, waiting..." No idea why I'm holding a beaded pear other than, "Hey! Props!"
Perhaps it would be put to better use in the winter emergency kit in the car. You could spot this coat better than any flare I know of!
Hard to believe people wore stuff like this in the 80's. I didn't, but someone must have because I keep finding thew evidence in thrift shops.
80's lace bodysuit- Probably Carson Pirie Scott, but I can't swear to it
90's Liz Claiborne waistcoat-Jordan Marsh
Necklace used as belt-Hand-Me-Ups
Slippers-Can't remember, probably Goodwill
1980's coat-New Life Thrift
Fragrance-Coriandre (I could have worn Arthes Fashion Victim, but that would be too obvious)
Ultrasuede is good this time of year as it is lightweight and breathable. Washable too, which is helpful if you get caught in the rain.

Ultrasuede jacket (70's does 40's) part of a suit-Goodwill
Lady Devon polyester 70's skirt-Goodwill

Remember kids, coats belong on your shoulders, not draped around you, tornado or not.
Hope you're having a swell week.
