This coat has been in my closet since high school when I picked it up for under $20 at my favorite local thrift shop. It is made of thick wool and being so long it keeps me toasty warm despite its shorter bracelet length sleeves. I'm pretty sure it is from the 70's but I think it looks rather late 40's when styled correctly. I have been wearing it constantly since it has been so cold around here!
I would like to note that my hair was perfectly sculpted before I stepped out of the car into the wind! I lost that battle pretty quickly, the wind always wins! So excuse my many flyaways! I received a four pack of E.L.F cosmetics eyeliners for Christmas and wasn't sure if they would have the same staying power as my usual liner. Mind you I usually buy cheap eyeliner, Wet'n'Wild, and have since high school because it works perfectly and stays all day. I should have known better than to doubt E.L.F, because this new navy liner works like a charm! It will be nice to switch it up sometimes and sport a navy cat eye instead of a black one.
They are the I'm Sew Excited Heel in Navy, and are a darker navy than they appear on the product page but I am glad they are truly navy blue instead of royal blue.

I think I might actually get time to sew again finally later this week, I plan on getting that darn Victorian chemise finished so I can move onto more fun things! I have a pile of fabrics waiting to be turned into new pencil skirts and dresses for the rest of this winter. I even have two different peacock feather print brocade skirts in the queue! I hope you are all having a lovely week, stay warm out there!
