A Coat of Green

Hullo there, long time no ramblings!

I guess this is how it's going to be until the New Year. I'm never very organised around the merry month of December- Always too much to do, too many 'good ideas' and never the means or energy to pull them off!

This is going to be a real short and sweet (well, perhaps just short) post, as I really do have nothing to say or show that I think will be of any interest!
I haven't got anywhere to take photo's of outfits at the moment (too may people around) and anyway, the lighting is rubbish in the house. I might try and reorganise my room so I have somewhere secluded to take the photos (remember I hate people taking my photo- I feel so awkward), but I don't hold out much hope of being able to change anything in there as it's so jammed packed. Anyway, I shall try my best to sort myself out!

I forced myself to stand long enough in front of a manned camera today, so todays outfit didn't go to waste. It's the first time I've worn this late forties/ early fifties coat (I know, but I did buy it in the summer of last). My excuse is that it's never been quite the right sort of forecast- always too cold, too wet, or too warm! Today's weather, however, was perfect for such a velvety coat.
My hat was a recent purchase (I possibly may have mentioned it in this post- can't remember) and was real steal for a little 30's number. *by the way, I'm not wearing the hat how it should be worn ;)*

(Hehe, the angle of this photo makes me look all head. I know I have a big noggin, but come on, it's not that big! I totally blame the photographer, AKA Pops.)
 
Quite a splendid little coast isn't it (yes I'm showing off!). It swishes beautifully and has the softest fur trim ever. I'm guessing its Mole, but I'm not that clued up on furs, so it could be anything. Oh and what about the colour?! Green is my favourite colour of all and emerald is also my birthstone, so naturally I had to have it. It's like it was meant for me..., except that it was made 60 odd years ago and that it's too short in the sleeve for old monkey arms, but apart from that...

Who first beholds the light of day
In spring's sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.
 
(well, we shall see!)

Hopefully, nearer the time I will be around to wish you all a Merry Christmas...

  5. Where to start? That is the sort of coat I'd break my leg running to grab if I saw it! I'm positively salivating, I adore green, too. Long gloves, m'dear, long gloves.

  7. What a glorious coat! I have a gorgeous fuchsia pink 1950's velvet swing coat which I have to wear when the weather is 'just right', as I dare not wear it if it even hints at being damp or rainy as I would hate for it to be ruined.
