i thought that referring to myself as a hasbeen was particularly apt today considering i just got my new swedish hasbeens in the mail and i totally decided to pair them with this old marc by marc jacobs coat that i bought waaaay back in 2001 when i was 18! (yeah yeah do the math on that one.) but like the tag on my shoes reads, sometimes you have to “move back to be able to move forward.” and i quite like that. but i guess you already knew that, considering that this blog has so much to do with vintage!
so while this marc coat isn’t quite vintage, it’s already 9 years old, which is about how much time it took me to like it again. and i kinda have to commend my 18-year-old self for that purchase, actually. i think that nowadays, i might find myself much too cautious to buy a huge orange military-style coat that looks like something straight out of sgt. peper’s lonely hearts club band. but at the time, i didn’t even flinch when i bought it. i was like, yeah, i’m 18! no rules. i’m spending all the money i saved over summer to buy marc jacobs. woo! or something like that. haha!
