I was recently sent a Penny Coat from Nicole Katherine Designs to include in my Holiday Shopping Guide. I was really impressed with this coat. It was styled after the 1940's Pendleton coats, but with an improved fitted silhouette. It's perfect for fall/winter on the west coast, or to layer with in colder climates. It is very versatile. I am in love!
The Penny Coat is made from a super soft wool blend. It is incredibly comfortable. It buttons down the front with big black marbled buttons and has a matching belt. As with all of Nicole Katherine's designs, the quality is impeccable. Her pieces are always so professionally made. Unlike a lot of other reproduction pieces on the market, her seams are always finished.
I have not seen any other reproduction coat as figure flattering as this one. I paired it with a skirt and heels to show how easily it could be dressed up for a holiday party or night on the town. Of course, it could easily be paired with jeans and boots too. I wore it with my Nicole Katherine Dungarees and it looked fab!
Holiday Shopping Guide Tip: Just go ahead and buy this for yourself. I won't tell anyone. You can put it under your tree and act like Santa placed it there. Nicole Katherine's designs are made in limited quantities and can sell out fast, so get this coat before it is gone. I know you won't regret it! You can get it directly from the website.
