Vintage Velvet Coat

Vintage velvet coat and Goorin Bros hat worn by Threads & Blooms

Finally wearing that vintage velvet coat

This coat I am wearing has a bit of history. I recall my mom wearing it when I was about 5 years old and I would occasionally try it on throughout my teens but never felt like I could ‘work it’. This past weekend was my first time wearing it and I feel like it has been a long time coming! My mom bought this coat when she was my age (40 years ago!) and she bought it vintage at the time. I love mixing new and vintage pieces – it makes sure your look is unique, and why not be unique?! 🙂

My favourite online vintage shops…

Etsy – Everything under the sun! This is my first go-to place.
Ebay – Great for finding a specific unique piece. I suggest shopping in your country to avoid duty fees if you are making larger purchases. (this goes for all retailers actually!)
The Real Real – Great spot for designer consignment. I could scroll for hours here!
