The Classic

We all want one, the perfect coat. I am going to go out on a limb here and toot my own horn and let you know that I happen to be a connoisseur of coats. ( insert cheshire cat grin )  I have been a purveyor of outerwear for a long time now and I want to let you know that I have found the perfect addition.  Believe me, I have been looking for a long time.  Surprisingly enough, I didn't have this staple top coat in my closet and was more than happy to finally make the purchase.

Coat: Closed // jeans: j Brand // bag: vintage //  bag fur charm: savant vintage // leopard scarf: vintage 

THIS top COAT IS A CLASSIC, A "FRANK SINATRA" OF COATS IF YOU WILL.   IT IS TIMELESS IN SHAPE, TAILORED IN ALL OF THE RIGHT SPOTS, IT IS JUST PLAIN SMOOTH.  AS IF I NEEDED TO STATE, THE BEST THING ABOUT CLASSICS IS THAT YOU CAN WEAR THEM WITH ANYTHING.  I CHOSE A NICE PAIR OF FLARED JEANS, A WHITE SHIRT AND THEN A FUN VINTAGE DOCTORS BAG TO BREAK IT UP A LITTLE BIT. 

THIS PARTICULAR COAT IS FROM CLOSED, PURCHASED A DELIGHTFUL SHOP IN BEND, OREGON CALLED HOT BOX BETTY.  A SIMILAR style from that brand can be found here.   OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO THIS ONE CAN BE FOUND HERE OR HERE.
