It was so promising

I much prefer warmer weather but at least the cold provides an opportunity to wear winter coats.

 First outing for my latest op shop find - Family dinner

 Loving the coat

 From all angles

  Open or shut

 Matches the boots

And the Osti dress

 My Grandmother wore Osti - it would have given her a giggle to think it was now one of my favorite 70's labels - it was an inexpensive brand sold at the Farmers Dept Store, but great patterns and colours and polyester all the way - wash and wear heaven.

And then .....

One wear and my new to me $15 jacket was trashed.  
Disintegrating vinyl - is there a way back?

Jacket: Vinyl and funny fake fur fabric, metal zip, 70's - $15 - op shopped
Dress: Osti polyester, 70's - $10 Trademe
Boots: 70's platforms - $20 op shopped
