Madison Chic

I met this chic woman while walking down Madison Avenue. She told me that she has had her camel coat for years and that it is one of her favorites. Is there a favorite item of clothing that you have held onto for years?

  • orange with camel…yum!
    her coat is so cozy.
    favorite clothing i've held on to: red plaid flannel shirt that i've had about 15 years, and still wear. i don't think of it as a favorite, but it must be, since i've had it so long!

    I have a beautiful, black pant suit with an opera-length coat that I bought nearly 20 years ago. I absolutely love it! I have a pair of white lace cuffs I, sometimes, wear with it. (I wear a white shirt with it on some days, and on others a beautiful blue one.) I will be terribly sad when the day comes it will no longer be wearable.

    That would be my plain black Tony Lama cowboy boots – 30 years and counting. They go in and out of style, but always look good and are comfortable.

  • That coat is brilliant and the glasses and the earings go so perfectly, such an inventive blog fashion definitely come with experience!

  • Absolutely! I've got a few pieces that are going on 30 years old that I still wear, love, and receive compliments on. Classics. They never get old.

    Utterly classic! Joan Collins once said the easiest and quickest way to look glamourous is a trenchcoat with big collar up, sunglasses and lipstick. What more does a lady need?

    Absolutely! My Max Mara Leopard Print Faux Fur Winter coat. Full swing coat above the knee with hood. It is such a show stopper that I have been wearing it for the past 21 years and I still get compliments every time I wear it. I want to keep for as long as possible so I only wear it on special occasions now. My other favorite item? My multiple black turtlenecks.

  • Oh yes, a fifties black wool coat with tie that's just gloriously warm yet I confess just a bit threadbare on the corners.

  • Linda, linda…

    I love this blog!

  • gorgeous

  • I have a great Maxmara coat similar to the one in the picture which I have had for about 11 years and still love. I keep my good clothes for many years and have a couple of superb Armani jackets.

  • Lovely outfit! Where do I start – my hat and vintage collection! Items that I could never find again in a million years and are very dear to me.

  • she looks great

    and great blog

  • Your blog is beautiful !!!!
