Vintage Monday....Pale Blue Coat, Soho

I love that the trim was all navy and not black.

She looks like a Tiffany box!

and I love that green wall you keep putting people in front of.

or do you just carry a LOT of green paint around with you. . .?

It reminds me to a mix between ancient greek and empire (1810) fashion. Great!

Have you seen 'inmortal beloved' by Bernard Rose... I wish that kind of costume -so femenine, confortable and beautiful- was the new trend.

I love it when ladys wear a coat as if it was a dress. So fun and practical!

I love her haircut, her makeup and her boots. The coat... I'm not sure.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Great photo! Love her haircut, and the flat patent boots with the gray wooly tights.

Vintage monday! I love the concept. It is great to star the tough week in a fun way, at least in the outfits.


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (10:45 AM) : 

My eyes popped when I saw that coat!

I nearly forgot to look at the girl!

But how perfect she looks, that pixie cut, the patent go-go boots, it's all there.


Blogger kathy said ... (11:07 AM) : 

Is the coat actually vintage? Because there's a coat at Zara that looks very similar.


Blogger Claris said ... (11:36 AM) : 

Interesting choice, great color. Looks like she could go down a size, though. But I suppose if it's really vintage, do you do alterations or do you wear what you've got?


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (12:23 PM) : 

Love the color and the detailing. However, structurally, it is not very flattering coat. Or maybe it is very flattering, depending on how you look at it. :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:43 PM) : 

i don't like this at all. the tiffany shade with red lips is always cute, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:04 PM) : 

Ohhh my god!!!! lovely coat!


Blogger FOUNDfashion said ... (2:06 PM) : 

I love these old coats that zip up half way and then button at the top. I have a Courreges jacket that does the same thing but is much more fitted.

Vintage Mondays Rule! Thank you for this!


Blogger Vistiendo a Candela said ... (2:12 PM) : 

She looks perfect i love the coat.
The best.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:54 PM) : 

This woman looks wonderfully stylish, retro and "Twiggy-like."


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:15 PM) : 

So eye-catching, the coat is fantastic! (On a total non-sequitur, her feet seem really tiny to me. Perhaps I noticed because I personally have skis.)


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (3:50 PM) : 

I like that!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:56 PM) : 

This coat is really vintage (mid 60s....a knock off of Courreges, I suspect, if not the real thing) and if you were to alter something very vintage like this, you need someone w/ real skills. A bad alteration can totally screw up vintage. It's not like you can go out and buy another just like it! ;?)

Personally, I don't care for the coat, but she wears it w/ moxie.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 PM) : 

She is such a lovely woman. I'm a vintage junkie, and so adore the coat --it goes perfectly with her boots and haircut, too. I do think, however, that the overall look would be slightly improved by 2 inches of skirt peeking out below the bottom of her coat --but that's just me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

Is she very, very small? All my vintage coats have sleeves that are much shorter than the length we generally wear them today. If it's no vintage, where can I get one? : )


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:41 PM) : 

Holy Cow part II! I love this. I was walking to work through Grand Central this was so dreary. I was just hoping for somebody who was wearing color to walk by. Black, grey, tan, trench, peacoat, black...This splash of color is just what I needed visually. Thanks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:14 PM) : 

Sart, you just brightened up my day--it's definitely been a Monday. Love the color and she is adorable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:13 PM) : 

Wow, what a perfect color for a rainy day like today.

I admit, though, that I couldn't help but want to redress her. Besides the coat, I agree with another poster that I'd like to see some skirt poking out, and I think the boots should be taller and more substantial, or on a dry day, switch to T Strap mini-heels.

Still, bravo on the coat, hair, makeup...


Blogger DS said ... (8:27 PM) : 

Smashing splash of colour, always good to see during the dreary weathered days.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:49 PM) : 

Good lord; that coat is gorgeous.


Blogger Pistachio Of Liberty said ... (9:06 PM) : 

To Sart, With Love: Oh LORD. This is dreamy.


Blogger Barbara said ... (10:21 PM) : 

I really love this-- the hair, the boots, the jacket, the leggings, they all go great together. She looks very mature, which isn't a bad thing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:55 PM) : 

She's a mod cupcake! Simply adorable in a Courreges sort of way!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:59 PM) : 

Sart you are a genius! The way you entertain us (The whole world. I am writing from Santiago, Chile) and yourself is the epitome of globalization you are a true siber-wizard.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 PM) : 

AH! I wore my vintage coat today, just by coincidence. And I also have a pixie haircut! I feel so in synch with the Sartorialist! (My vintage coat is unfortunately black and slightly too big for me, but it is in mint condition, has a lovely velvet collar and beautiful buttons, and the proper chamois lining makes it warm in winter.)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 AM) : 

totally different from all the blackblackblack dress-tights-booties looks from fashion week... LOVE!!!!! love love love!!! thank you sart. a breath of fresh (tiffanyish) air.


Blogger pearlaceous said ... (2:36 AM) : 

I love it! Very Unique! I like the bold outlines.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:50 AM) : 

fucking HOT!


Blogger Spandrel Studios said ... (8:27 AM) : 

That color combination is so nice this time of year - parting the sea of black coats.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:15 PM) : 

What a perfect coat! My only criticism is the zip - I think it ruins the overall look. It would have been nice to have seen some covered buttons instead...I'd still buy it though! xx


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Simply shocking !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:36 PM) : 

She has a really interesting face, she looks like Greta Scacchi. The coat is too cool for words.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 PM) : 

I'm not fond of the coat(a personal color thing I think), and don't like the leggings with it, but her haircut is terrific and totally suits her face, and I love the boots.


Blogger sophie said ... (12:13 PM) : 

gorgeous, so vintage looking. its so nice to see color in the wintertime rather than just blacks. kudos to her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 PM) : 

i'm not sold on the coat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:24 AM) : 

that girl is too cool for school.

what a fabulous coat!
