How Cool is THAT?!

I saw this advertisement in a magazine for Coldwater Creek's new fall looks:



The red jacket, white shirt and jeans really caught my eye, as a month ago when I started taking pics of my Autumn Vintage collection for Etsy, I snapped this pic of myself (I use a timer to get the photos) in my own red jacket ensemble:


No joke, I took these a month or more ago, before I ever laid eyes on the Coldwater Creek line!


My jacket is 1960's, wool, 3/4 length sleeves; and I took off the faded plastic buttons and replaced them with wooden buttons. I decided not to sell my jacket; I liked it too much and cannot part with it.
The Coldwater jacket is lovely, and costs about $60 bucks. It has a cute ruffled collar and two rows of buttons instead of one, but this is a great example of how vintage looks are very current!

Cool! How much had you spent on your vintage jacket? But, this is probably not about cost as much as it is about how fashions cycle.

I bought the jacket at the Salvation Army for $2.99. But don't tell anybody. (*snickers*)
