The Elegant Way to Keep Warm

1950s Dan Millstein black velvet embroidered evening coat  (2)

Snowflakes fell here yesterday...not much left-over today, but the temperature has taken a big dip and that means time to don a winter coat.

This beautiful 1950s Dan Millstein ~ New York ~ Paris label embroidered black velvet coat is cold weather luxury at it's finest.  Lined in rich champagne satin, it feels like butter against your skin.  The sleeves taper into a snug fit, which not only looks amazing, it keeps those cold winter drafts out.  You can find it in our "Vintage Outerwear Department" in The Shoe.


1930s vintage Filene's blue velvet hooded robe dressing gown (4)

You've seen this baby blue before...1930s vintage blue velvet hooded dressing gown/robe/evening coat from Filene's Boston (quite possibly the original store).  Fresh from the drycleaners and now available in our "Vintage Lingerie/Boudoir Department". 
Finally, something warm to wear with a hood that is not fleece or sweatshirt fabric.
