My Closet: Plum Peacoat

Hello friends!

So, remember back a ways, when I was telling you about some of my favorite pieces from my own wardrobe, a la Colette Sewing Handbook?  I told you about my Hunting Skirt and my Bikes & Top Hats Sorbetto.  Well, next up, my favorite Plum Peacoat from Macy's.  

I first saw this coat in the Macy's window while strolling down Main St. one early fall afternoon two years ago.  I drooled.  And then I drooled some more.  Then I took my roommate to see the coat in the window.  Then I showed the boyfriend.  Then I gushed about it some more to my roommate.  Then my roommate dragged me into the store, made me try it on, and then made me buy it.  True story.

As I mentioned in my last post, the boyfriend (he's so great!) he generously helped me take some photos around town while we were on a nice little saturday afternoon walking date.  So, while I show you pictures of the coat, I thought I'd show you a few fun pictures from around my adorable little town.  You don't mind, do you?

Plum awesome!

Ok, how fantastic are those buttons?!

A 'bikes & top hats' underneath for good measure!

The boyfriend (who oh so wonderfully took these photos for me!)

So hard to get a non-blurry photo when no one is behind the camera!

My favorite part of this coat is the second hem!  I love how the coat ends, and then 'surprise!' there is another bottom waiting to peek out! (Oh, and I'm standing in front of one of the winery tasting rooms)

Our great little candy shop, Brights!

Gigantic lolli!

So there you have it!  My favorite peacoat, and a few little glimpses of my home :)


  1. Oh my goodness, I love this coat too! I can't believe you needed someone else to tell you to buy it . . . lol. Anyway, this is truly a great piece to include in your favorite pieces collection, hopefully it inspires some great handmade pieces for your wardrobe.

    BTW, I found you from MySewingCircle (since we are friends on that site, I decided to check out your blog).

    1. Ooh, I'm so glad you checked out my blog! Thanks :) I've been following yours for quite a while! I've been so so blessed to find wonderful blogs that I can learn from and be inspired by!

      The coat really is wonderful! :) I just needed that extra nudge of someone to say "really? really montana... you're debating on whether or not to buy THAT coat!?"


  2. Totally worthwhile - the coat is GORGEOUS! The colour suits you wonderfully and the detailing is super-cute :)
