I think every closet needs a couple (or more) “statement pieces”. Pieces that could become your signature, or that get worn when you’re in a certain statement mood. We all have our own ideas of what makes a statement piece, from a fab kimono to a feathered fascinator, to floral hiking boots. You know one when you see one.

That’s how I felt when I saw this amazing vintage tie-dye coat on Kinky Melon‘s site. Vix always has beautiful and unexpected pieces, and I knew this one had to come live with me. It feels like a heavy cotton, and I think it was hand-tailored. It’s over-sized for my frame, but I love that – it creates a 40’s silhouette.
One of my favorite ingredients about wearing vintage (Vix says this one is late 80’s/early 90’s) is that you will NOT see yourself coming and going. This coat makes a definite statement. And check out the back with its amazing rain guard.
