I bought this vintage coat from work, I believe it's from the 1940's.

I don't mind at all, I'm flattered actually.

The coat was a steal at $45, it's worth much more. My boss always prices things sometimes ridiculously low. :)

Re:
well, i'm glad yr flattered then. :)

my best coat is a vintage leather one [i think it is from the 60's], and i paid a whopping $15 for it. i only own one 'new' coat...the other three i bought vintage.

Vintage is the best! There was a fantastic vintage long dark blue leather coat at work that I fell in love with, but it was too small. My mom bought it when she visited from Eastern WA and it looks great on her, I'm pleased it's in the family at least. ;)

Re:
i so prefer to buy older clothes...many of them are of far higher quality then the stuff you can buy today. plus, classic=never out of style.

i am very much looking forward to thrift store hunting while in california.

I never found any decent thrift stores while in London. Did I just not know where to look? Camden market was about as close as I could find.

Thrift
There's a pretty cool thrift-warehouse just off Brick Lane - I think the street's called Cheshire street. Mind you, the clothes are apparently all sent over in containers from Canada, so you might do better getting them close to home (cheaper in the UK thought, so I'm told)

Re: Thrift
Thanks for the recommendation. When I first visited London I figured there were probably all kinds of awesome thrift stores, I was a little disappointed. I will check that one out, even if the clothes are Canadian. ;)

the sepia grabs the old school feel the best, I think... nice.

Thanks! I liked how the different contrasts looked. I prefer the top two, but I figured I should also show the color one so you can see what the coat actually looks like. ;)

Could you possibly be any more gorgeous?

Oh, and nice coat, too. :)

*blush* You're gorgeous too! I always get a little anxiety posting photos of myself, I'm not sure why.

Thank you. :)

Now I know why you took that job. I hope you got a good employee discount on the fab. coat!

Very pretty picture, except that you look kind of bored... (I know, it's just the way glamorous models are s'posed to look, like the shoot is just too too tedious and you're counting the minutes till you can hop back in that limousine with David Bowie.)

I get discounts occasionally, not on this coat though.

Concerning my looking bored.. gotta keep up appearances, you know. ;) I actually don't smile much in photographs in general. One of my close friends keeps telling me I need to smile more in my photos, but I always feel kind of silly smiling at a camera when I'm alone.

In regular photos I usually smile too much and look like a dork IMHO. One thing I think is interesting about taking a photo of myself, as I've done a few times, is that I can calibrate the amount of smile such that I look nice but not dorky.

lol I can relate completely.

I have a few smiling self-portraits, well maybe "smirking" is more accurate.

you, the picture... ALL.

what kind of camera did you use?
[User Picture]
On January 30th, 2002 04:09 pm (UTC), nomi replied:
thank you very much.

The camera is digital.. Fujifilm MX-1200. It's a decent little camera, but I would like to buy one that has a zoom lens and higher resolution at some point.

I did take some other photos that show off the..er.. coat more, but this was my favorite so I posted it instead. hehe

Good plan.. I see in another comment you said about feeling anxious about posting pics of yourself... judging by the average comment of the "what coat?" variety I don't think you need to worry... :)

I just noticed that there's a digital clock-radio in the picture, which would spoil the retro mood, except that the telltale LEDs are only visible in the color version, not the sepia or B&W. Lucky, that.

(Hey, I'm a married man, I have to keep my attention on things like the coat and the radio... :-)
