Today I have the pleasure of featuring Dulcie from Human Sea Vintage for Everlasting Apparel. She’s a vintage shop owner (on Etsy) and blogger from London. Isn’t that the absolute dream? I’m sure you will fall in love with her and her whimsical style immediately. And I love the way she think about vintage clothing…
I am a twenty-five year vintage style blogger, living and working in south east London. I work at an enchanting and historic department store, Liberty of London, in the Customer Services department and in my spare time I search for vintage clothes to sell in my Etsy shop.
I bought this coat as a treat to myself for finishing my BA degree in English Literature at the University of Manchester. I found it at Mod Human Vintage on Etsy and it was a real bargain when you consider the quality and construction of the coat. As far as I am concerned, as much as trends change and fashions come and go, the shapes and colours of the early 1960s will always captivate me and set my pulse a-racing!
The dreamy pistachio green shade of the wool, the oversized plastic buttons and the generous cut of the fabric have ensured that I return to this garment – winter upon winter – for a timelessly elegant and feminine look and I am confident that I will own it until it falls apart.
Thanks so much, Dulcie! And I agree: There are some fashion moments that will always be fashionable, no matter how much the rest of fashion changes. The 60s definitely belong in that category.
