Hello and TGIF (picture me sighing in relief), dear friends!
Today in outfits with a past (drumroll, I'm always drumrolling in my head after these words) I'd like to revisit a great find I wore way too little: my Gianfranco Ferre coat. As you may know, winter in Israel is scarce to none-existent, especially in the last two years. This fact makes me very sad because:
A. It's my favorite season.
B. My birthday is in February, and I like feeling that it's my birthday, not thinking we accidentally landed in July.
C. The best clothes are winter clothes!
I found this coat for 200$ (which is a joke, for a designer of this caliber) in a boutique that imports designer fashion (and especially shoes) from past seasons. Its tailoring is impeccable, inside and out, and I'm just in love with it.
The pictures don't do this coat justice. Yeah, it's all prim-and-proper, but with a little pencil skirt beneath and the right shoes and jewelry, it's a wardrobe milestone.
I'm at awe of the tailoring job and of the out of this world fabric. I'm actually contemplating a similar coat in these boucle fabrics from Gorgeous Fabrics:
But that shall wait till it's not so friggin' hot, because right now I sweat even from thinking about sewing wool.
What about you? Have any favorite coat you're dreaming of? And does dreaming about winter fashion make you sweat and curse or brings back cooler, saner times?
