A 1930s Velvet Coat That is Black as Midnight on a Moonless Night

Just like Agent Cooper on Twin Peak's I only like my coffee black:






Nothing beats a delicious, dark, steaming cup of coffee on a cold winter morning.  It's a lovely treat.
 
I think black clothes can be lovely as well, but for obvious reasons, pet hair of course, I rarely wear black clothing.   I do have a few exceptions, and one particularly lovely one that is overdue a show on the blog.  My 1930s velvet coat.  It's one of my few really excellent thrift store finds and is so beautiful that when I found it two years ago I ignored the impractical color and fabric.



It really is beautiful and the black velvet is so beautifully dark and nicely set off by the white fur collar.




It flows prettily too and for such old fabric, I'd estimate it is about 80 years old, it is in great condition.





 
It's not very warm  though, so really only good for warmer winter days and fall, but then that is what makes this a luxury item, in my wardrobe, but a fun one.  As Agent Cooper says it is important to treat yourself, every day, once a day, give yourself a little present:


Whenever I put on this coat it is my little present for the day, and guess wear I wore it the day these pictures where taken?  That's right I wore it to get some coffee!

  6. Oooh, that is a lovely coat. Definitely worth getting, even if it's not a colour you usually wear.

    Compared to my last, longhaired, cat, the urchins don't shed much. I rarely see cat hair. It's great!

  8. What a lovely coat. I don't own a black coat right now, but yours has made me thinking I should look out for one. I used to wear black all the time, and now I seem to avoid it most of the time. Oh, and I loved Agent Cooper and always have my coffee black too! xxx

  9. Wow, that's one fantastic coat! (I love to wear black - or white. B&W are my faves which are a bummer - cuz of the dog hair with the black and the fact that I'm a slob and spill things on myself all the time with the white!)

    That's a great blast-from-the-past with Twin Peaks. :)

  10. Such a beautiful coat, you look lovely. Most of my black clothes have a sprinkling of bunny fur, but I'm so used to having fur on my clothes now, that I barely notice x
