Last week when I went into the Trashy Diva offices, I got complimented on the jacket I was wearing by Bree & Tiffany, who were working in our Magazine Street shop. I told them it was actually old Trashy Diva! My buckles jacket, seen above, is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe, and I think it might have been the first thing I ever bought after I started working at Trashy Diva in 2006. I think I actually got one of the very last ones before we sold out! (There was also a black leather version of the buckles jacket, which sold out before my time. I wish I had both!)
When Christy of Slow Southern Style recently suggested that some local bloggers all write posts on the theme of our favorite coats and jackets, I knew immediately that I wanted to be involved! I love layering, and there’s nothing better to top off a fall or winter wardrobe with than a cute jacket! I love my buckles jacket for day time use and if I’m going out to a bar or club (this jacket has seen many late, smoky bar nights), but sometimes you need a glamorous jacket for special occasions. My personal favorite is the Garbo Coat!
The first picture was taken during the holidays, in 2006 I think. Nothing says Christmas like the Garbo Coat and a Santa hat with bright red trousers! The second set of pictures is the outfit I wore to a friend’s outdoor winter wedding. Between the Garbo Coat, a wool tweed skirt, and an Isabella corset from Trashy Diva, I stayed pretty warm even though it was cold out!
The Garbo Coat is still available for purchase here. The buckles jacket is an older style, but maybe if enough of us bug Candice she will bring it back??? You can check out all of the current Trashy Diva jackets & coats here.
To see my other favorite, non-Trashy Diva jacket, head on over to my personal blog, Miss Malaprop. And don’t forget to check out the other participating bloggers…
