New coat from the 1930s

February 18, 2014


Recently, with reference to our interview in a national newspaper, a stranger approached me through Facebook, saying that she had a beautiful 1930s coat and if I were willing to buy it from her. When I saw the pictures, I wanted just that! It looks slightly like my other coat (pictured in my previous outfit post) and which is quite at the end of it's rope. It desperately needs replacing, so this one came godsent!

I am wearing the same hat from the late 1930s, that is also pictures in my previous outfit post and I am wearing my extremely narrow 1930s Oxfords which have - before me - never been worn! Although my feet are pretty narrow themselves, they do have difficulties breaking these beauties in. I only wear them for short walks.

  2. Wow, echt supermooi! Ik vind de jassen uit de jaren 30 vaak erg mooi. Ze hebben zo'n mooie snit.

  3. You look beautiful, just like taken from this epoque. If the photos weren't in color, it wouldn't even cross my mind that they are contemporary.

  7. It is smashingly gorgeous! I adore Persian lamb's wool trim that on vintage coats. I had one of my own with it for many years until it too passed the point of no return. What a cool way, too, to come by your new winter coat.

    1. Yes I like it, too! I always get so sad when vintage it's beyond repair. But atleast I worn it with love, just as their original owners many, many years ago I'm sure.

    1. Thank you dear Abigail. It's quite around the corner of my house in my living place Zutphen. It's a medieval, hanseatic city and you see that everywhere you look! It's a lovely place to live!
