Looky!!! I came back from grocery shopping and look what the mail man brought....I got this fabulous Lilli Ann coat in the mail and it is way better than I even expected it to be and I have high expectations for Lilli Ann because their clothing line is tailored so well. I've been in vintage coat mode lately and I'm so glad I can now add this to my collection.
I'll showcase more of this fabulously awesome coat in the future. I love the velvet square details and the puffy sleeves. It's such a great vintage coat. This fabulous Lilli Ann coat cost me a bargain price of $150. These coats usually go for at least twice this and seeing it in person, I can see just why. I think the coat is from 1954. I'll have to go through some of my magazines and see if I have the ad, I seem to recall I do. I could certainly become addicted to Lilli Ann coats....wait I think I already am...sign me up for Lilli Ann Anonymous classes.
I'm thinking I need to also get some child labor going and get my kids to sweep the deck:))
Here's an overexposed picture so you can see the details. Excuse the lack of one button not fastened...it's there:)
Here's the matching ad, thinking 1954:
Since we are on the topic of today's mail, I also received this great hat box. I was surprised when no one bid on it so I won it for 99c + shipping ($16). Now, a little airing out and as good as new.
