I visited my mom and her closet the other week and came home with a vintage Burberry trench and this particular brown suede coat. My mom is the best at hiding her gems but luckily I’m well informed of where to find her treasures. If I wouldn’t have known I’m not sure she would ever have told me she had it…
I showed you the trench the other day, and here is the suede coat, worn when doing my Saturday shopping with one of my guys. Wearing it brings back so many memories. Both of my mom wearing it (me being baby size, we are talking the sixties here…) but also from me being 19. Because that was the first time I conciously spotted this coat and decided that I had to wear it.
Same coat, same person but what a difference! I wish I could have shown you pictures of how I looked like back then, but unfortunately (fortunately?) that’s not going to happen. I get this warm and tender feeling towards that young girl with all her aspirations and dreams embraced by this cool brown suede coat.
Now it still embraces me and I still have hopes and dreams but of a different sort. May they turn out to be as good for me as the one’s I had back in the days!
