Cozy Wide Lapels

Last night as le mari was leaving to go on a shoot in SF, his worker mate, France, needed a coat as it is actually fall up there. I went and dug thru my coats which haven't seen the light of day since I lived in SF and I found two cozy cashmere treasures. I don't know how I ended up with this same vintage wrap coat in two colors, but I did. They feel a bit more like house robes than coats, but I've always kept them as they're lovely quality and chic in a Katherine Hepburn kinda way.

The length is not working for today and I may employ my scissors, but I really should take them to a professional. Camel color is classic, but bath-robey-length has got to go especially on this one...


After I took these pics, I saw this. Yes, Carine, you're perfect, and I'll cut my coats to the knee.


And this...both of them on Garance Dore, both wide lapel coziness

after you've done the alterations, you should pack those coats in a suitcase and come to SF for Mitchell's pumpkin ice cream :)
