shortie coat

As a gal who's is only 5'5 I alter a lot of dresses and pants, but also coats which I think some people forget they can have altered. I have had my tailor shorten many of my coats, and it's not even expensive, most coats are around $10. This coat was very long and though it was cool that way I knew I would not wear it very often at that length. As it is now I wear it a lot, so if you ever see a coat you love while thrifting or at a vintage shop that you think is too long you should think about having it tailored!

1950s plaid dress ◊ estate sale
red cashmere cardigan ◊ thrifted
coat ◊  every eskimo
black belt  ◊ thrifted
tights can't ◊ jcrew
boots ◊ Frye

And the SHOP is still 20%, until Sunday night, 11/27! Enter code HEYTHANKS at checkout.

That is a beautiful coat, and I can't imagine it at another length. perfect. I never think to get coats shortened- I always just wear 'em at whatever length. hmmmm...

Damn that is a great coat! It never occurs to me to have things tailored. I gotta start thinking that way.

It's so funny to me that 5'5" is taller than the national average (also my height), and trousers are always too long! Can't there be a tall section for those trousers, and normal people like us can have normal length trousers?! Sigh. It's all a campaign to not only make us feel short and odd, but to support the alterations businesses, I suppose.
