Vintage coat


Receiving  gifts is always nice, certainly when it are clothes. It becomes even more valuable when those clothes have a history and are real ‘vintage’.

Before I continue the story about the coat I will tell you something more about the location. These pictures were taken on a lazy afternoon in Brasschaat near Antwerp in Belgium.

Now let me go on about ‘that coat’... For me it’s not just a simple coat, it has a rich story. I got this coat from my boyfriend’s mom. It wasn’t hers, it belonged to her mother. She told me all about her life and so this coat has a long history. For me this is so special and I am proud to wear this coat, I feel like I m wearing history, like I've entered in time machine.

I am sure I will pass this coat to my children. Enjoy the pictures and have a look at portraits of Frida Van Brussel, my boyfriend’s granny. 

I have this beautiful photos thanks to my love Milan Swolfs

  1. Nista lepse od divnog starog kaputa sa pravom krznenom cicom!! :)
    Divan look!!

  2. Divna priča, kaput je zaista djelić historije i prenošenje sa koljena na koljeno je uvijek jedna od stvari koje me baš dirnu. Kao da uz sebe uvijek imaš dio osobe koja ga je imala prije tebe, a može li biti išta ljepše od čuvanja na bilo kakav način uspomena na naše najbliže.

  3. Predivan kaput kao i citava historija koju si nam prenijela :)
    O fotografijama da i ne govorim...savrsenstvo !!

  9. That coat is to die for and it looks beautiful on you. WOW! What a find and what a wonderful gift. I'm guessing it's 1940s?
