The Comeback Camel


Prada - Black Camel Coat/ebay.com

Too hot to consider, I know - but Camel is a' coming. I take the off season opportunity to indulge my love of vintage & ebay to hunt for the upcoming trends. When speaking of these come-backs is recycled too harsh, or should I say re-visited, or re-introduced?

While others are sporting their bermuda's; I will be searching for my old paramour - camel. Burberry, Chloe', Ralph Lauren, Bill Blass & Miu Miu a few. Dare I dream of Chanel, perhaps Prada? If only I kept all those that have lived in my closet before; there is the shawl collar, the wrap, the maxi and the trench. The double breasted with toggles, brass buttons or horn.

Oh how I have missed my dear courtesan of coats. Welcome back

Reminds me of when I was a teenager a gazillion years ago! I had a double-breasted camel hair coat that I just adored. I had totally forgotten about it. Thanks for the memory!

right there with ya! Absolutely love classic camel and it seems to be flattering to most skin tones, too.

I love camel coats; they're so classic and sophisticated. Alas though, there are only a few days a year here in Houston that you can actually wear one!

I'm in the market for a new camel coat. I have literally worn my old one out. It's getting bald. *sigh*

I can't help it. It never fails to be the perfect choice.
