LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this jacket! It was from the “French Room” of some department store in the 1940’s – 1950’s and has the most lovely European couture style.
French blue with royal purple cuffs and attached scarf, wicked fit and unusual tailoring details. So unusual! Near the same time, I also found a French wool hat in the same purple – PERFECT!
I looked for several years for the perfect skirt or dress to go with it and, voila’, it did appear, as I knew it would. Perfect color and fit – a sleeveless sheath dress. Purples are hard to match, like many other hues.
Ooh, la la! Oui, oui! So now I have my cute little outfit with just the right sassy chic. Ce la vie for the Magicvintagespy. Now for the shoes – I have the most perfect pumps from France in brown leather, but I would so much like purple. . . . . . . . . .
