Vintage Monday….Pale Blue Coat, Soho

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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?

    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. :-)

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

    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!

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

    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.)

    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.

    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.

    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? : )

    Holy Cow part II! I love this. I was walking to work through Grand Central this morning…it 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!

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

    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…

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

    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.

    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.

    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.)

    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

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

    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.
