Here is the second item for the collaboration I did with the great little vintage store Miss Daisy Blue.
If you are into vintage clothes and like to buy something unique with a bit of story behind it, you should check out this shop in Cork City, Ireland. They stock a huge range of carefully selected vintage pieces and you’ll inevitably find something that you love. If you’re going to wedding and want something different if you buy vintage it’s highly unlikely someone else will turn up in the same dress! When I looked at the tag of the coat I could see it was from Scottsdale, Arizona -which I thought was funny as a friend is from there and by all accounts it’s a pretty hot place – so don’t know when you would have the chance to wear this fabulous number. In any case I love the white embroidery/piping-detail on the jacket, the cut is very elegant and the 60’s style reminds me a little of Jacqie Onassis. You can see the other look I styled from Miss Daisy Blue by clicking here.
It’s also reminded me of the Beatles jackets on their Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album released in 1967. Obviously the yellow jacket is a bit more understated and elegant!
Anyways I love this shade of yellow and it fits with my color palette so I’m happy out.
If you’re not sure what shades suit you, you should do a seasonal color analysis. Here’s a link to a sample test that I found. According to my palette (cool winter), colors I should avoid are khaki, brown, beige and coral/orange hues. Have fun doing the test – no doubt it will come in handy for the next time you go shopping 🙂
