Baby, it's cold outside! (Better put on a coat!!)

So this is my new coat! I bought it from RetroRenegadeVintage on Etsy. That seller is AMAZING! Her name is Jerri and she does a great job with shipping and sells great things. The coat has little to no damage. The only way I knew it wasn't deadstock was a little bit of collar discoloration (pomade collar!) Its a little less warm than I thought it was going to be so I think Im going to make a liner for it. Something soft that I can take out at the beging of spring and still wear it.

In my post yesterday I mentioned getting a shirt and slacks for $25. The shirt was $10 and it is soo nice! I wore it today there isn't anything too wrong with it. I think I stained it in one spot(though I'm not sure if I did. It could have been there.) For some reason when I buy vintage i buy a lot of browns. This is just another one on the pile. I need to fix a couple things on the slacks. There are two little holes I didn't see before I bought it and can fix with some fabric cut off the hem behind it. I don't like that they aren't pleated, which I usually prefer, but ther color is nice. I can't wait to go back to Beck's so we can go shopping there again. But I'm bringing more money so I can buy more stuff. Everything was so affordable and in pretty good condition and if it wasn't it was even cheaper.
