Take a look at this adorable 1960's plaid coat that I found the other day!  Because it's the middle of summer and almost 100 degrees outside, I'll call it a Christmas in July piece. There!  That makes it better, right!?!  It has a really great cropped shaped with 6 large shiny plastic buttons on the front.  The collar is large enough to stand up as protection from the cold and also fold over for more of a polished look.  The arms are wide at the openings and 3/4 length.  The black satin lining is soft and a great finish to the coat.  To me, it has a very "Twiggy meets London fashion in the 60's" kind of feel...I love that.  It would look great over a dress with some knee high boots in the Fall!  Check it out in the Etsy shop today!
