>1936 Boxy Jackets and a Plea for Shoes

>Hi all!
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 :(

    >Oh, how darling! I actually just bought myself a really fun 1930s novelty print "boxy" beach jacket. This gives me some ideas on how to wear it (i.e. over a little dress!). Aw, sorry your gorgeous balboas don't fit! If I ever see any in your size online, I'll alert you asap! xo

    >I'd love the one with fur cuffs! I have no idea where I'd wear it to, but maybe I could just swan around the house in it?

    >The jackets don't do anything for me, but I want ALL the dresses that are shown under them. So cute!

    >Yes, I was actually thinking lately I want a jacket like that, similar the the top right one – I was thinking a summery knit, but with enough weight to it to fall well. I can't make my mind about the color and what yarn to buy. I think they are very cute!
