This coat was an impulse flea market purchase. I spotted it on a rack brimming with vintage coats, and its flounced sleeves, technicolor pattern, and large brass buttons was love at first sight. As much as I love all things Southwest, the jacket's bold pattern make it a specialty piece. When it does make an appearance in my daily wear, I often pair it with neutral colors to make the jacket the standout garment in my outfit. I suppose it is often difficult for me to part with unique pieces such of this jacket, even when I wear it only once or twice a year.

Holy smokes. This is the most amazing coat I've ever seen. It has so many details that remind of you too - southwest prints, ruffles, an a-line shape. It was meant to be yours!
