FINALLY! TRUE VINTAGE EARLY SPRING COATS FROM THE 1940'S - 1950'S

Yes, these are still wool coats, but lightened up in color and style. They definitely have a Spring-like feel, though still substantial enough to ward off the frigid temps that are hovering in many places.  No matter Global Warming, etc.;  some years are still pretty cold and some places continue to freeze while others turn balmy.  I’ve heard it was recently -30 degrees in southern Ontario, Canada!  That means, also,  Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho,  Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York . . . . . . . . . and cold nights in many other places

In other words, don’t write off the importance of having a fabulous true vintage wool coat or two (or 3, or 4 . .. . . . . . .).   I love heavier ones for deep winter, but these are such cute, girlish/ladylike designs – they put a spring in my step (no pun intended, but why not!). Very neutral, so they can complement the pastels that we want to start wearing now.

I just love the design details of these mid-century, wartime and post-war outerwear garments with big collars and buttons, smart trimmings, fun pockets and beautiful fabrics.  From preppy to I Love Lucy – It’s fun to have all three and to pick the one that’s just right . . . . . . . . . .
