Suede Trench Coat

Going 70s inspired in this embroidered suede trench coat.

I’m sentimental. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved the idea of vintage.

Visiting my grandmother’s house, I used to marvel at all her old jewelry, handbags, clothes, and shoes. It amazed me that all her possessions lived through a different time!

I wonder these days if we develop such sentimental attachments to our special things,  or even the quality of our things will hold up through the years.

This trench coat, as it turns out, is not vintage. But it sure looks like it, doesn’t it?

I bought it at Bebe, of all places, about 15 years ago. I saw the embroidered butterflies and immediately fell in love.

I was so glad last fall when the 70s made a sort of style revival. It inspired me to pull out this trench again, which hadn’t been worn in a few years.

How do you feel about vintage clothing or vintage-inspired looks? Are you a fan?

  1. Yes, very much a fan of vintage pieces. I used to collect estate jewellery actually but it’s been a while since I went treasure-hunting 🙂 I love that coat and I really adore the shirt you’ve got underneath. It looks like delightful porcelain xoxo
