Ageless Style Linkup: Baby, It’s Cold Outside

THE AGELESS STYLE LINKUP

Nine ladies, forty and over, show you that style doesn’t have an age limit. A themed linkup takes place on the first Tuesday of every month.

This month’s theme is: Baby, It’s Cold Outside, or what to wear when the weather is a bit chilly.

MY LOOK

 Vintage Embroidered Coat Coline Dress {living outside the stacks} #AgelessStyleBloggers

I bought this coat a few years ago from a store called Annie Laurie’s Antiques in Cape Girardeau, Missouri {If you ever get a chance, go there and then walk across the street to the sister store, Mother Earth. You won’t be disappointed.}. Anyway, I was in the store with my daughter and I saw this coat hanging on the rack and stopped dead in my tracks. My daughter was like “Mom, that coat is so you!” I tried it on and was surprised to find that it was too big {usually vintage clothes are too small for me}, so I put it back and walked around the store a little bit more but I kept going back to the rack and touching the coat, rubbing the embroidery, and just sighing. Finally, my daughter said “Mom, buy the coat and have it altered.” Duh! I bought the coat for $10. Yes, you read that right, TEN DOLLARS. I took it to the cleaners and meant to have it tailored then but totally forgot {don’t ask me how}…

Since moving to Georgia, I haven’t really had the opportunity to wear my coat, so I guess now would be a good time to have it altered as I won’t miss it.
