GIRL IN THE RED COAT











Wearing: vintage coat (Red Cross Store/359 King), vintage shirt (Thailand), skinny jeans (Nobody), socks (Sportsgirl) and vintage boots.

Some spontaneous snaps taken by Thu as we were walking through the back alley ways of Newtown. The late afternoon sun filtered through the trees and the townhouse line streets were blissfully quiet.

I picked up this vintage, 60s inspired red coat from the Red Cross Store on King Street. Funny that, red from red! It is one of my favourite pieces that I purchased from the store and has these amazing letter "M" buttons on the front! I am guessing "M" for "mod"?! .... I'll settle for that ;)
