I found this coat last October, at the same time as that velvet skirt. There was no doubt whether I should buy it even though I already own one dark blue coat. What was my excuse? I wear dark blue the same way other people wear black, it’s my neutral colour. Also I was in need of a more classic grown up spring coat. I love my green and red ones too but sometimes even I need something a bit more subtle. Don’t you just love it when you find a great vintage garment you know you will use until it falls apart? I do!
