TREASURE HUNTING 101: VINTAGE 1960S OLEG CASSINI CHENILLE COAT & PURSE

Oh, the joy of being a Vintage Clothing lover!  I wandered out the other day to do a wee bit of shopping, as my daughter is sick and we  have been cooped up for far too long for this suburban socialite. . .

At the very last moment I decided to make a quick stop at one of my favorite "haunts" ( you know. those "High Security" zones that no one else knows about. . .should you disclose location you will be eliminated. . .) and I ran across this Vintage Beauty:

An Oleg Cassini Vintage 1960's Brocaded Chenille Coat. . .

My heart skipped a beat
Well, maybe 25 beats, once I realized I didn't have enough cash
and my credit card was useless
at this establishment. . .

What's a girl to do?

I did the mental dance,
you know the one:
"I already have enough inventory to fill a floor on Macys"
and
"This is a bit on the wild side. . .other's may not see the vintage beauty of it. . ."
and I left
without the coat. . .

But I went back today and you'll never guess

IT WAS STILL THERE!

And now, it is HERE, and I am left wondering:

Are these two vintage treasures related?

My sister gave me this gorgeous Vintage Bag years ago
and I love it for the simple fact
that the strap is long enough to wear over the shoulder.

(A rare "wonderful" with vintage purses)

When I found this gorgeous coat,
I was obsessed with the thought:

"Is my Vintage Brocade Purse a Match?"

ARE THEY RELATED?

Hmmm,
similar features,
but alas,
I do not think so. . .
