In My Closet: Vintage Oversized Coat

August 20, 2013


Just got this beauty back from the cleaners, and now I can say I'm ready for fall and winter! Totally in line with the upcoming season's oversized silhouettes, this is vintage modern perfection. Designers like Celine and Chloe have been sending similar coats down the runway, and I have been on the hunt. I literally jumped for joy when my eyes landed on it at a Salvation Army. I am guessing it's from the 80's or early 90's. The tag says "Steve", and "Made in U.S.A". A great way to tell how old something is - back in the day, there were a lot of great quality pieces that were locally made. The coat also has a Neiman Marcus tag on it. From what I know (from google), this is probably a Steve Fabrikant design. **If anyone can confirm, I'd love to know if I guessed right! ;)

Aside from attached shoulder pads (which I had removed by a seamstress since they were literally sewn in between the lining and the outer wool fabric), it is in amazing condition! Can't wait to pair it with a cable knit sweater or structured blouse, skinny leather pants and some heels. 

Thanks for dropping by! :)
