This was a ‘Had to Have’ item when I came across it in an antique store in a small town recently.  The moment I laid eyes on it, the memories flooded back.  I had one that had a white background and similar paisley decorations in turquoise and reds.  My younger sister, who kindly modelled the coat in the photo, inherited the coat from me back in the 70’s.    We both had  strong reactions and a sense of ‘deja vu’ when we saw the coat and luckily for my sister, it fit her.  I was not so lucky.

The coat is in excellent vintage condition, with very little apparent wear.  The label says: Lady Utex – The Aristocrat of Casual Fashion – Made in Canada. The coat is lined with a gold coloured satin and has a lined attached hood. The fabric has a soft, velvety feel to it.

I will be bringing the coat and some other vintage clothes to the Ottawa Antique Show at Carleton University Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th 2014. Drop by my booth and try it on and be transported back in time.

Please note this coat is now SOLD!!!
