What’s your obsession of the moment? Mine has got to be 1930s boxy jackets! I’m all over them right now.
I love sporty styles and don’t often have a coat to match. I get chilly rather easily, so always like something warm to tote around. When I dress vintage my fallback is a white linen jacket for spring and summer like the one I posted yesterday, but I’m feeling like I need to liven up my vintage wardrobe a bit with some cute and practical vintage boxy coats or bolero jackets. I have a very sporty mid 30s dress nearly finished and I want a two tone jacket to match!
Here’s some really fun little boxy coats from 1936. I now utterly crave one with a sailor collar and a more dressy number with fur cuffs (though it is fitted in the image I bet it would be charming as a boxy coat with a tie at the neck). Hmm… I do have some faux fur in the stash…
Finally, I have a plea. I bought these Re-mix shoes, the first I have ever bought, but they are too large and I need a 6.5, which they no longer have in stock! If anyone has a pair they want to sell, or sees a pair pop up online anywhere, can you please let me know? They match the dress I am making perfectly! I need the Balboa in the Maize/Brown (or Luggage) combo in a size 6.5. Thank you! I am desperate for these shoes! Serves me right I didn’t even know they existed and now they don’t have my size :(
