The 1960's Military Mod Coat

This coat is an absolute dream! I spotted her about a month ago behind the store counter marked as a 'go-back'. Even though it was 85 degrees in the store, I had to try it on. Am I ever glad I did, we were a perfect fit! Over this past weekend, while rummaging through a local antiques store, I found this specimen of a pillbox hat. The veiling is strong and intact, and the bright blue is simply stunning. It will probably make it's way into the shop at some point, but with the military-esque chevrons, and the 'space-waitress' appeal, I had to pair these two together. Oh, and check out the last photo to see the back of this fabulous coat...there's a little peak-a-boo-pleat lined in a bright magenta wool!
