SecondHand Treasure: 1950's style Rain Coat!

Today we went by a second-hand store, and to my amazement, found a vintage-style rain coat! It doesn't have a hood, but I love the way it "flows" over my skirt! I went ahead and tried it on, right there, without bothering to go into the dressing room ;)
It fits wonderfully, and I bought it at a bargain price of $10.

Hi Mia!

What a charming raincoat! BTW, I'm so sorry I never responded to your tag! I appreciate it, but Lauren and I decided, since our blog isn't a personal one, that neither of us had better participate in tags--fun though they be! Thanks for thinking of me, tho! Hope that didn't cast a kink in the linking. :)

Blessings!

Hi!
I was wondering, how long have you been exclusively wearing skirts?
What did your friends and family think of the decision?

Mia said...

Hi Mia!
Let me start off by apologizing for not commenting in like, months! We've been so busy I haven't much time for blogging. I LOVE the coat. Vintage is the best:)

Thank you ladies, for your encouraging comments!!!!
Maria: I've been wearing skirts for..about a year and a half now! It was hard transitioning at first, but now, I can't imagine not wearing skirts :) Thanks for asking, Maria!

I love your coat! I'm a big fan of the 1930's 40's and 50's style clothing.......it's so feminine and practical. You look lovely!
