Living in a province where it’s cold the majority of the year, having a good coat is necessary. Since I wear a coat probably 8 months of the year, I find myself always searching for new ones because it can get rather boring wearing the same old coat everyday forever and always. When I found this one at the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show I knew it had to be mine. It was the coat I was looking for. Incredibly warm, huge pockets, big collar, and in a lovely cream colour that goes with pretty much everything in my wardrobe. It’s exciting to find a vintage coat that actually fits. I’ve been lucky a few times now, but I’m not one those people that consistently finds beautiful vintage coats while thrifting. There are just too many stylish thrifters in Toronto, so you know how that goes.
