The Red Coats are Coming!

These gloomy, grey, cold days make me wish for a pretty red coat to brighten my mood...

Fiona McLaren said...

Ha! You're not the only one. I can't find a perfect red coat anywhere... or in fact, a perfect new coat fullstop. I just wrote one of my very first blog posts on the hunt for one!

I just got a red coat! I love it, and great pic! :o)

I'm always on the hunt for a good red wool coat! They are always run-down or wayyyy too big and I don't think my sewing skills translate to tailoring big wool coats. Boo.

lucille said...

i LOVE red coat me too and I love your blog !

Ambroisine said...

All those red coats are beautiful ! I'd love to find one..

KEREN said...

Though the second is my favorite, I love them all. Red coats are absolutely lovely!
;)

Pretty Pirate said...

It' funny, I saw that red one with the furry and loved how she styled it. I have that same coat that I thrifted here in SF about a year ago, I always get complements when I wear it. It's my fave.

arrghh! I've been looking for a red coat for years, and haven't been able to find one that fits (and that I like). To make it worse, I lost some for hesitating, see here:

red coats are such a brilliant to feel a bit more lively. they're all so pretty. love your blog...would you like to trade links?

MissAmyShops said...

OK, I'm finally going to ask. I hope you don't mind - if you do I guess, don't answer? Anyway, what photo editor do you use? Your photos are always divine! They mesmerize me every visit!

copperoranges said...

i love red coats! i still do not own one!

The Clothes Horse said...

So pretty! The way the Snail and the Cyclops did her hair is amazing.

Sally Jane said...

Thanks so much for all of your comments!

MissAmyShops: I use Photoshop CS3 to edit all of my photos.

Jennifer said...

What a lovely color! It makes me happy!

jayne said...

oh i need one too for an uplifter

Sam said...

Ooh, I love the second outfit.

I need some advice and I thought you'd be the right person to ask...how exactly do you wear plaid skirts without looking too much like a school girl? I bought a high-waisted tweed skirt and I have no clue what to do with it! I've paired it with lots of sweaters and shirts, but nothing looks right. I hope you can help :)

the last one is DEF mama stone vintage. i think snail & the cyclops looks amazing!

Lady Melbourne said...

Mmmm, I have a red coat for winter and I adore it. Makes me feel all cheery!

I have a red coat, and I just love it! It’s simply a good old-fashioned coat, if that makes sense.

HoneyBunny said...

they look beautiful! I'VE GOT ONE AS WELL:)

Ace said...

Oh gosh, they are lovely. I have a red trench coat but it's not nearly warm enough to fend off Boston winters.

LITTLE J said...

A lot of red clothing has been catching my eye lately. These lovely coats are definitely not an exception!

Stacey said...

I usually don't wear red much but I love my red coat. I get so many compliments on it.

MissAmyShops said...

wow - you're a true pro. i work with cs3 but i'm not much of a photo editor. it also probably helps that you take such great pics to begin with too :) thanks for the answer ;) i'm constantly inspired by your photos.

mothersvea said...

O love red in general but my favourite is the one from Facehunter! That one surley gets me in a good mood!

sleepy valentine said...

oooooh soo pretty! I want a red swing coat so bad :(

rougecorail said...

I love it, my favorite color ! I've already have a fabulous vintage red raincoat, I need a coat in the same color now, looking in your shop maybe....;-)

Lucie said...

Oh, I love red coats, it's very elegant.
