New Military Coat

So I took these pictures after work so I have more than my fair share of late-day shine. I picked up this coat from Old I love this coat. I love the weight of the buttons, the pattern they make across the bust, the shape... everything. I got this coat for under $50 (what a STEAL!). Bonus pics of my picture perfect challenge for Jagged Little Pill.

    No wonder you love the coat - it is fab! So....are the buttons real or for show? How does it actually do up?

    LOVE that coat and Jagged little pill outfit too!! I want green beads!!

    Suz -- yep they are working buttons -- that's why I'm so impressed. I can change the shape of the neckline based on how I choose to button the coat (high neck, v neck). Also the buttons on the epaulets are working buttons.

    That coat is great for you.  I think it will be a wonderful counter-point to the feminine flair you so skillfully inject into many of your outfits.  Gorgeous colors all around.  Love that you can play with the neckline.

    Marvelous coat --- and in our neck of the woods we need a passel of 'em!  I love the tee --- Vera Wang, yes?

    Beth Ann -- But of COURSE. I fell in love with the print and had to buy it upon sight.

    Congratulations on a great buy. I love how you've styled it with the floral top. That motif has an art deco look to it, I feel. It reminds me of Clarice Cliff's work.

    Love this coat on you.  What a find!  And the floral top is perfect for Jagged Little Pill.
