The Style Crone changed hats and gloves and added a vintage gold pin to the turquoise coat for a slightly different look.  As I chose the taupe accents, I realized that I could go on for days with different combinations of hats/gloves to play with turquoise.  But I won’t.  For today, the gifted vintage taupe with turquoise trim fur felt hat with bow and estate sale vintage taupe leather gloves accessorize the 80’s coat as Nelson captures my eyes though the lens just as he captured my heart so many years ago!


  1. Turquoise is a fabulous color on you and you certainly have beautiful things in turquoise. And hello to Nelson.

  2. Lovely,fabulous,gorgeous!

    Hope you both have a wonderful weekend,look forward to seeing the gowns…

  3. This one is my favorite!!! I just adore that hat and the pin is a great touch! Pairing taupe with this blue is fabulous! You are glamorous….and I am still excited about your weekend!

  4. Not surprised Nelson captured your heart, if the Valentine’s Day with the red rose and silver antique tray was anything to go by! You’d have to be made of stone not to be moved by that. However, saying that, I think he knew a good thing when he saw it! How wonderful when Cupid gets it right!!

    Love from England

  5. Wow, what a fantastic outfit! I think you look amazing in this – love the taupe with turquoise!

    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I’m excited to see what you wear for Leopard Week next week.


  6. Couldn’t wait to tell you but the new AARP magazine had an article on Top-Value Travel and mentioned the Broadmoor as one of the lavish vintage resorts! Lucky you and Nelson.

  7. I love this coat and you look wonderful. You are an inspiration to those of us in the 50’s and wanting to remain stylish.
