My favorite thing about trench coats, is that they can be dressed up, dressed down, and when in the khaki color, can been worn with pretty much anything (see above). They instantly make outfits look a little bit nicer and more put together. This is why I was in desperate need of a new one. I didn't want the same old basic one though, because it really only needs a couple of tweaks and will be up and running again. I guess I was really more in need of a new style of trench coat. Enter: the recently revived, 70's style suede (see below). In my efforts to start avoiding fast fashion (H&M, Forever 21) I quickly realized anything new was out of my price range, because, suede. Then, I looked to vintage, and found a couple of great options on Etsy. However, I tend to get lazy and let my online shopping wishlists run a muck. I kept putting off ordering one because I wanted the perfect one! I finally found it at a Salvation Army in Columbia, for a rock bottom price. It is from a Boston coat company that looks, from their label, like their at least 40 years old. My favorite part of this vintage find though, is that it's made in the USA. After reading about the importance of supporting American-made clothing, I've been trying to do just that. Also, this coat has a beautiful rust color to it that is starting to become a neutral in my wardrobe. This is a trend I can definitely get behind!
