Sunnies: Gifted, Jacket: Vintage (via Downtown Threads), Sweater: Gap, Belt: Target, Jeans: Charlotte Ruse, Booties: Jeffery CampbellI’ve wanted this coat since I saw Kate Hudson as Penny Lane in Almost Famous. A few weeks ago I got a call from Carolyn at Downtown Threads telling me to get to the store ASAP because she’d found my dream coat. When I finally made it to the store and Carolyn pulled this suede beauty out my heart almost stopped. It was the coat I’d always wanted and it fit me like a glove!
The jacket is 100% suede and I love that you can flip the collar up for a more dramatic (and warmer) look. The collar itself is shearling, it’s so dense that your fingers disappear into the fleece when you touch it. I love how the coat is nipped in at the waist so you can be warm and cozy without looking or feeling bulky. I couldn’t believe the jacket’s pristine condition after Carolyn told me that she found it in a storage unit!
It may have taken me a few years to track it down but now that I finally have my perfect ‘Penny Lane’ coat I can say it was definitely worth the wait.
