Aldo booties, Zara coat, J.Crew top, vintage clutch,
This coat has a bit of a funny story…I got it maybe three years ago out of pure desperation (I think I was stuck downtown in appointments or something all day and thought it’d be warmer out than it was and was shivering away in a cardigan) and never really grew to love it. After that winter, I stored it away and completely forgot about it until I chanced upon it last month while trying to find this vintage parka. For whatever reason, this hooded, graphic coat was suddenly far more appealing to me than it had ever been before. I’ve ended up getting tons of use out of it this winter and it’s become one of my most-circulated and loved cold-weather pieces. I don’t know if it was a taste shift, an openness to getting more creative with my closet or maybe just the fact that I really was in desperate need of another addition to the winter-wear roster this year, but at any rate, I’m happy that it’s found a new and reinvigorated role in my closet.
Have you ever randomly had a reignited love affair with a once-cast-away piece?
