If shopping vintage feels a little out of the box for you, I seriously recommend starting with vintage outerwear. Because outerwear is a bit of a statement in itself, you have room to try something that stands apart from the rest of your style. Picture a unique tweed blazer over your favorite jeans and blouse outfit for work, or a brightly colored peacoat with a dress and tights for date night dinner. Vintage wool, leather, and knit are of a quality you don’t come by as often today. They’ve held up in quality for decades while remaining timeless in style.
Being both white and vintage, I expected there to be a possibility for discoloration or natural wear on this coat. I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived from Winola Vintage in mint condition, as if it had come right off the rack just yesterday. I’ve got my eye on a couple of other pieces in her shop, like this denim blouse (so very Madewell!), this floral midi skirt, and this pastel striped sweater. She’s even got a great little turtleneck like the one I’m wearing here! Lucky for you, my readers get $5 off any order of $20 or more using code WRITESLIKEAGIRL. Be sure to follow the shop on Instagram to keep up with new arrivals!
