Show 'N Tell Tuesday: Vintage Red Coat


SHOW:

TELL:
On Christmas Eve we were about to walk out the door to go the the Christmas Eve service at church. I ran to the coat closet to grab a coat and decided to grab the red, vintage coat that I purchased about 7 years ago ar a vintage shop in Eureka Springs, AR. I remember when I saw it I loved it. It was a heavy coat, a great red color, cool big red buttons, and a neat little design in black in the fabric. I think if I remember correctly the coat was from the 30's or 40's - pretty cool I thought. I had it dried cleaned and enjoyed it for a few years and then for some reason kind of forgot about it for a while. So I was so glad that I pulled it out and wore it on Christmas Eve. The only thing that's a little different about it and what might make it look like it's a vintage coat is that the sleeves are short. They are not meant to be long. It doesn't bother me, actually I like it.

So that is my vintage red coat that I love so much. I love finding things like this that are classic and you can wear and enjoy forever!! And that no one else will have! ;)
