My New Vaute Couture Coat

Let’s it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I’m ready! Of course we don’t have snow at the moment, but Seattle had experienced a cold snap lately. I don’t mind though–I get to put my new Vaute Couture coat to the test.Vaute coat

Emily coat: Vaute Couture
Scarf: Fred Meyer’s
Jeans: Just USA
Pleather booties: Diba

I almost didn’t buy this 3/4 length coat because it’s “warm enough for a Chicago winter” and we don’t get weather like that around here often. I’m so glad I got it though. It’s cozy and toasty without being bulky. When the cold stays out, I don’t hunch over to stay warm. So I can walk with my head held high, no matter what the temperature.

I’ve been wearing it zipped half up, moto-style, but I can zip it all the way up to really keep my neck warm. I unzipped the hood already, but I’ll add it back to show you how cute (and toasty) it is.

I love the velvety soft fabric and bright blue color. I’ve tried a couple of different looks so far. I love my bright pink infinity scarf, but I also like the blue stripes. They both go with the other, shorter Vaute jacket I bought the day this arrived in the mail. I loved this so much that I had to get another one.

Best of all, this is wool-free, 100% vegan, and has a quilted, recycled fiber lining. Vaute is a design house based in Brooklyn. It’s great that all of Vaute’s clothing is made in New York, by people who are paid fair wages. I love supporting small businesses–especially ethical ones!

I preordered this in early September at a great price. Buying before the coats are made gives the company funds to make the line.

I am more than thrilled with my coat. It almost makes me appreciate winter.

I’ve joined Style Elixir, The Pleated Poppy, Elizabeth Nygard, and Transatlantic Blonde for blog link-ups today. See what everyone else is wearing!

    • Thanks! It is really soft. At first I worried that I’d be covered in cat hair in no time–it’s velvety! But so far, it’s looks new. I couldn’t resist the color. These days “fashionable vegan” is not a contradiction! LOL! Oh, and it snowed in Seattle today so I’ll be testing this coat for sure! Thanks for stopping by!

    crazy colour! love it!

  3. WOW!! What a beautiful colour!! You look regal in royal blue! Love the style with zippers and belt. I totally agree with you, supporting small businesses in our own countries and cruelty-free fashion is important. That’s why I’m glad I found Covered Perfectly, stylish tops manufactured in California.

    You’ve made a good investment, you’ll have this coat forever and it’s a timeless style. ♥

    • Thanks! I loved color as soon as I saw it. It comes in black too–always a classic, but I wanted to venture out. I love brights but I usually go for neutrals when buying “investments pieces.”

      • Black is a classic and everyone owns a black coat, but royal blue is so much nicer for the dreary Seattle days when everyone’s wearing black, and look like they’re on the way to a funeral. 😉

  4. Love your new coat! The color is beautiful. I just bought a Vaute Couture coat in black and I really love it!

  5. Beautiful! May I ask what size you purchased (so I can get a sense of their sizing)? Thanks! 🙂

    • Of course! I got a large. Normally I’m a medium (US women’s 6-8), but I was lucky enough to have visited Vaute’s shop in NYC a few months before ordering and I noticed that their products run small. The medium was too snug–especially with a sweater underneath. Oh, it’s almost two years later and I still love this coat. It holds up really well.

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
