Psynopsis Vintage Crochet Coat by Vintage Vixen Ralph Lauren Trousers
Colours, they still frighten me. I do wear them sometimes, but they make me feel so… visible. Then lovely lovely Vix sent me this bold and daring wool coat her mum crocheted in the 1970s and I knew I had to throw all fears out of the window and go for the-more-the-merrier. The fearless piece seems to have found more friends quickly though because every time I want to put it on now I find Sarah all snuggled up in it already.

Colours - How do you wear them? The more the better? Coded? Always combined with neutrals? Not at all???

You look absolutely fabulous, Sabine! My Mum would have loved to have seen her creation worn so beautifully and fearlessly. Those yellow trousers are the stuff of dreams! xxx

It is a bold piece but absolutely stunning on you. You can pull anything off, really. You are such a stunner!

I think you've done a great job matching it with the rest of your outfit! I LOVE color, but then I have hard time knowing which colors go with which.

Hope you have a great week! ;)

Fabulous - bold and vibrant. Am I right in thinking that Vix posted photos of herself wearing this a little while back? (Or perhaps her mum made more than one). Great addition of the zesty lemon trousers.

Your quite right, Roz. I only stitched on the pockets and now it's all MINE :)

Mat said...

true i don't remember seeing you in a colour before, other than some trainers one time? it's wicked, bet you feel privileged to have something that someone knitted in the 70s

Old Cow said...

YOU LOOK RADIANT AND VIBRANT AND COSY AND WOW!!! I love this look. It looks effortlessly like "I AM ME AND THAT IS THAT AND THAT IS COOL>>>MYWAY"

I hope I make sense

i think it's best to throw all colours together, especially when you're actually scared of colours - it'll look effortless, like you don't care (actually, like you did in this post :) ) i think what really draws attention to a colour is when you wear it only with black or only with white - i don't like. that's why - when i wear a colourful piece which almost never happens - i combine it with another colour, which does not fit the first colour - to make it look less styled. do i make any sense?

Old Cow & Kazuko - You make PERFECT sense to me... and Thank YOU!

this is so bold and so bright, and you wear it well!

i bought a hot pink shirt the other day. i do this every now and again. sometimes i am very shy with color, and sometimes i have a FUCK IT attitude, and i wear it. color can bring a lot of cheer, and who doesn't need that? then again, i still love blacks and neutrals, but it is nice to have options in life. :)

I love, love this! I honestly had a coat in college that looked very similar to this which I dubbed "Jopeph's Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." You look perfect in color! xx

E said...

I love love love this photo, this look, the colors. I know I sound overly gushy, but I really am this enthusiastic about the whole thing!!

Fashion Tales.... said...

Brilliant colours like these are wonderfully worn. I love it! What a dear that Vix is. -xo

Fashionistable said...

Love this. It is a wonderful piece. I can understand why it would be worn a lot. I usually wear colour with a base of black. Xxxx

sacramento said...
