Fintage Fashion Show: Red winter coat

We were outdoors on the day before Christmas Eve, when the vast part of Christmas preparations were already done. The temperature had fallen already to minus 20 degrees Celsius (minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit), so there was a real call for my “new” winter coat.

The coat with velvet trim and wide hem proved to be extremely warm to be in. I had also velvet gloves and hat with rhinestones. On my feet I had wool lined suede ankle boots. I bought these originally for my sister from a vintage boutique called Penny Lane in Helsinki. They were anyway too large for her, so they ended finally back to me. After that they have been one my favorite shoes for winter weather, especially for their warmness. For a purse I had black box purse and for earrings I had selected rhinestone ones matching my hat and gloves.

Until next year with new outfits and surroundings!



Dressing in vintage clothing is part of my lifestyle, which is due to my love of music from 1940s to 60s era. Almost all my vintage items date back to 50s and early 60s (small part is already from 40s). In this blog I shall only present vintage items (unless specially noted). Besides collecting vintage items, I love going to parties in good company and having looong hot rod car runs. I will post every other Friday (even numbered week). I hope my outfits will delight you or even better inspire you! By the way, I am not in the Facebook, so I can not comment on those messages. Messages left via Facebook are of course welcome, but I will not be able to comment them in these circumstances. IN FINNISH: Vintage-pukeutuminen on osa elämäntapaani, joka on seurausta rakkaudestani 1940 - 1960-luvun musiikkiin. Lähes kaikki vintageni on 50-luvulta ja 60-luvun alusta (pieni osa on jo 40-luvulta). Tässä blogissa esittelen ainoastaan vintage-tavaroita (ellei toisin mainita). Vintage-keräilyn lisäksi tykkään käydä juhlimassa hyvässä seurassa sekä tehdä pitkiä hot rod -ajeluja. Postaan aina parillisen viikon perjantaina. Toivon, että asuni ilahduttavat, tai vielä parempi, inspiroivat sinua! Muuten, en ole Facebookissa, joten en voi kommentoida Facebookin kautta jätettyjä viestejä. Facebookin kautta jätetyt kommentit ovat tietenkin tervetulleita, mutta en pysty vastaamaan niihin.

    I have two pairs of suede 40’s boots but always fear to wear them in snow or rainy days….
    Our Xmas day was quite warm after a week with snow we had 14°C for Xmas Eve… and even 25° on the same day in Biarritz….

    TRhis is a stunning outfit. The coat is beautiful in itself but the black velvet hat and cuffs take it utterly DIVINE. You look beautiful…as always! The scenery is such a nice backdrop to the rich colours. xx Shauna
