VIPme coats for women over 50.

Coats for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Provided by VIPme.com and Under $100

Quote of the day: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. for knowledge is limited whereas imagination embraces the entire world.” Albert Einstein

For those of us who live in climates where is gets cold, I think a coat provides not only a way to look stylish but also to be functional. Since most of us tend to keep our overcoats for many years, it’s not unusual to spend more than $100 on the item.

But what if you could get a great coat for less? Would you be more apt to try a fun pattern or style? Heck, VIPme is even offering you $5 off on orders over $50 with the code Jodie415!

I’m such a fan of having an interesting statement coat…and if you don’t believe me, you should see my closet! Even my husband bemoans the fact that men’s coats are so boring because he sees what I have to wear (and we know how stylish he’s become from our “Borrow from the Boys” Series.)

As another collaboration with the online shopping website, VIPme.com, we decided to show a couple of the variety of coats that they have to offer. I’ve really enjoyed my activity with this company–we’ve shown some of their dresses, here, and long cardigans, here. If you use their measurements, I feel like the sizing has been correct and the quality has been great.

Jodie’s (50’s) Outerwear Outfit: I chose this pink coat because of the interesting details and unusual color for a winter coat. I’m sorry if the color looks washed out in these photos—the day was extremely overcast and I forgot to change the setting on the camera to cloudy! The color is better represented on their website, if you’re interested.

This coat is not your heavy duty coat for below freezing temperatures. But it works wonderfully as an extra layer to go from the car to store and back again! They consider is a faux suede, and it’s a stretchy material. You may wonder why you’d pick a coat with 3/4 length sleeves for the colder weather. My rationale was a little crazy. I had just bought these long gloves last winter, and I wanted to make sure they got appreciated!! Besides, after watching Madam Secretary for the past couple of seasons, I’ve grown to like the look of seeing longer sleeves peek out of the jackets!

I love that there are pockets, which are always nice to hold my gloves. And then they make the pockets stylish by adding a black, faux leather strip above the pockets for decoration.

I think the seaming on it adds so much interest to the look. That detailing is even found on the sleeves with buttons too! I could have easily worn my black scarf & hat with this, but I wanted to add some color to this dreary day! I think even grey or brown winter accessories would be perfect with the coat.

The closure in the front shows one big button, but it’s actually a snap under it. Because the material is somewhat lightweight, you could easily pull the collars together and pin them if you were going to be outside for a long time!

Nancy’s (60’s) Outerwear Outfit: I am in love with the embroidery detailing that I’ve noticing lately on jackets and jeans. So when I saw this coat, I knew Nancy needed it.

Out of the three of us, she looks the best in black, so she lucked out with my favorite over coat. This jacket is the heaviest one of the three being wool. It’s lined on the inside and comes with a matching belt. As we all know, you can always remove the belt and either substitute a different one or even use this belt on another  coat!!

The embroidery is even on the back portion of the coat. If this is a little too much decoration for you, there is another option that doesn’t fill the entire front panels, here.

I think almost any colored scarf would look fabulous with this coat. Especially a bright one like red or blue, but I grabbed Nancy’s lilac one today. The mittens don’t match either the coat or the scarf….would this bug any of you?

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outerwear Outfit: Mom’s coat is this wonderfully muted floral pattern. It has a flat neck collar and buttons up the front.

It’s not as dark black as Nancy’s coat, yet it’s still relatively subdued for those of you who like the darker colors! In the online picture, the color appear much more vibrant, but in real life it is not.

We grabbed mom’s fur scarf to keep her warm. She has a black scarf like this too, which would look great with the coat. However, black is not her best friend against her complexion, so I thought the navy might photograph nicely and tie in the blue jeans!

This coat is also considered that faux suede and is a nice stretchy material. The advantage of this aspect of the material is it will work great over the heavier sweaters that we’re apt to wear under our coats during these colder months!

Mom usually likes to match her gloves to her scarf, of course. But I thought it’d be fun to pull in the burgundy color from the coat!

      Thanks so very much for featuring me.
      I even recommended your party to one of my blogger friends who had some great DIY ideas—hopefully she’ll participate too!!

  • Great coats! Thanks for sharing at the Grace + Lace Linkup!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Mackenzie!!

  • A secret. Or not so secret now, is that I’m often throwing a coat over my pj’s on a quick errand to the supermarket! A pair of knee high boots is all that’s required. I love that guilty feeling when I think Ha ha, you don’t know what I’m wearing underneath!
    I love love Nancy’s coat! They are all beautiful, but if I had to choose it would be Nancy’s x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      OMG Laurie—that cracks me up!!
      Now, you realize that I’m going to be looking at everyone at the grocery store with a buttoned up coat and boots and wondering if they have their PJ’s on under it!! Ha ha ha ha!
      But at least you look presentable when you go!! 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by!!

  • PetiteOver40

    Jodie, I would totally buy a coat with 3/4 sleeves for the reasons you gave! If you’ve got the gloves, flaunt them! Ha ha! My favorite of the three coats is Nancy’s, though I like yours and your mom’s coats as well. I will check out VIPme for some ideas. I don’t think you can have enough overcoats in winter and at those prices, it makes sense to give some new ones a try!

    Hugs,
    Sherry

      Don’t you just LOVE Nancy’s coat? Gosh, I just drooled over it when I saw it!! It reminded me of a coat I saw on a lady in church many years ago only hers was beige with more of a goldish embroidery. I asked her where she had gotten it, because I was sure I was going to go purchase it no matter what the cost (it just took my breath away it was so stunning)—-but she said she had gotten it in Japan!
      I almost chose this coat for me, but I’m really trying to be conscious of which colors make me look better.
      Thanks for your voice & lots of love
      XOXO

  • Although I think Charlotte and Nancy look wonderful in their coats, my personal preference is your gorgeous pink coat. I love the colour, the seaming and the 3/4 sleeves. I grinned when I read the reason you bought 3/4 length sleeves. That was exactly the same reason why I chose that kimono jacket I am weaing all the time now: I had bought long gloves and needed a coat to go with it haha. So recognizable.
    Wouldn’t mind a pair of long leather black ones like yours too.
    Greetje

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well, I’m so glad I’m not the only crazy woman out there, Greetje!! Ha ha! I mean, I know I could wear my long gloves with my long sleeved coats, but what’s the point if no one is going to see how fabulous they are, right?
      I actually got these gloves from a cheap online store for about $3—obviously not real leather. But I wanted to make sure that I’d really wear them before I invest in a good pair!

      • I am looking into long black gloves now (40 cm) and they are expensive. yep.

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Ahhhh, but so worth it! 🙂

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Jodie, these coats are beautiful. I really like yours. I guess the thing I like about a more monochrome coat is that then you can wear so many different scarves with it. Ha, ha. But I am a scarf girl! Nancy looks fab in her coat and I love the floral pattern on your Mom’s. It is very unique. Great looks. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I didn’t realize you were a scarf girl, Amy!! But they are a perfect way to add some fun to the solid colored coats. I lost a sentimental scarf once at the coat check, so maybe that’s why I don’t always like to worry about a scarf with my overcoats? Of course, I could just keep it with me, and not worry about it!
      Thanks for the positive thoughts and words!

  • those coats are amazing!! I’m going to VIPme right now

      I’ve been so impressed with VIPme. Nancy said the cardigan she got from them (from a couple months ago) is her absolute favorite !

  • I love your long gloves! It’s so funny how we are often influenced by TV and film.

    I think your Mom’s coat is my favourite. So unique and I think it suits her.

    bisous

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I think you’re so right Suzanne—she has always loved florals, yet it’s not super dark for her!
      Thanks for giving her a boost in the compliments department!!
      My mom has had long gloves for a long time, and I thought they were unnecessary—until I made the cape—then I was like, “hmmm….I need long gloves”. Mom’s are always smarter than we think, huh?

  • I love all the coats you’ve picked, they all look very stylish! I liked the pink one the most, it can be added with so much different accessories, so that there would quite another image. Like this post!

      Thanks Olya!!
      You’re so right that changing the accessories could make it look so different!!

  • donnaduck

    Oh my gosh- my mom used to have long black gloves like yours when I was little and I remember her putting them on and I’d think, “she’s the most beautiful woman in the world…”. This would have been in the early 60’s (think Mad Men fashion) and I just loved the styles! Her black dress coat had this mink collar around it too- oh, did she look elegant!

    I actually received a statement coat from my sister-in-law last year (her mom bought it, didn’t like it, and didn’t fit my SIL), and I thought, hmm… I’m more of plain coat person. Then I put it on for the first time, last week- LOVE IT! It’s a dark camel color, soft velvet-y material, a little above knee length, toggle buttons, has a big collar and turn-back cuffs. But the neatest thing of all- it’s reversible and the other side is… get this one… leopard print in black and dark camel!! Leopard print!! Combining two of your recent posts! Guess I really AM embracing the leopard this year!

    I love all three of those coats, but my favorite’s your pink one with the black stitching- love that contrast!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a fabulous story Donna!! Don’t you love how a clothing item can bring back such memories from your childhood!!
      Well, you’ll have to hug your SIL now for converting you to a statement coat gal!! I’m so jealous that you have a leopard coat. Don’t tell my husband, but I was actually salivating over one I saw on a mailer I just got a couple weeks ago (I thought it was the Limited, but it could be others). How perfect that it’s reversible so really you have 2 coats in one!!! I bet you’re going to get a ton of wonderful attention in that coat!!
      XOXO

  • I love how all of you are rocking statement coats!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Tara—-it’s definitely an obsession of mine!!

  • Love how detailed each of your coats are. So beautiful!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Probably something you don’t get to wear much in Vegas, huh? Although both mom’s & mine are more on the lightweight side!!
      Thanks for the lovely compliment, Darlene!!

  • You picked very nice coats! And I think your rational for picking 3/4 sleeves makes total sense! 🙂 Nancy’s coat is my favorite.

      Isn’t that embroidery on Nancy’s coat just divine!! If it had come in another color, I would’ve snatched it up! I think it’s such a fabulous detail!!
      Thanks for taking the time to read & comment, Andrea!!

      Thanks very much, We’ve combined the very old (collar) with the very new (coat) and liked it very much.

      • What a great idea!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Thanks Michelle!!

  • I love your coat the best! And your boots 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Nancy!!
      I do love my OTK boots—it must be a new obsession!!

  • These are all such fun coats! I love having a statement one to spice things up during the winter months. I really like all three.

  • I love that you all got some very unique coats, which can be so nice when you are sick of wearing the same one every day. I love The addition of the fur collar to the floral, it works really well.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Truer words have never been spoken…since we have to wear a coat everyday in the winter—it gets so old to wear the same one. I love being able to switch it up—especially to compliment the outfit underneath!!
      Thanks for the love Lydia!!

  • Gorgeous! I love the leather accents on the blush coat!

  • I love a good statement coat! All three looks are amazing! I love the fur trim on your moms floral jacket, so chic. Nancy’s black embroidered jacket is beautiful and I love that she added a pop of colour with the scarf. And the leather detailing on your jacket is perfect and your burgundy boots are gorgeous!

      Thanks so much Jackie!
      A great jacket definitely gets a ton of wear—at least where we live!!

  • Judy Gramith

    Charlotte looks absolutely spectacular in her darling new coat!!!!! MY goodness she’s a cutie!!!
    I also like the contrast of the light color embroidery on Nancy’s coat and would recommend a pretty crocheted/knitted shawl type scarf to complete the very feminine feel of this coat and add a snippet of extra warmth.
    I love that you chose a pink coat and it is really great with your burgundy boots Jodie. I really think those cute boots deserve some matching burgundy gloves and hat. You KNOW you’ll wear them as often as you wear the boots!! START knitting Jodie! =)
    This vendor has a lot of coats and other cute items!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much for this great thought, Jude!
      I do need to get knitting—I always put off buying hats & gloves because I know I can knit them….and then for some reason they get put on the back burner. I told Rob, that I’d knit him some fingerless gloves for when he’s taking my pictures—so that’s made it to the top of the priority list!!

  • You know how I love my coats, Jodie, so of course I adore this post! 🙂 I would wear all three of these coats, but I think your mom’s is my favorite! Love the fun floral pattern and the fact that either a scarf, fur collar or even just a turtleneck sweater would work great with it. Your coat is fabulous as well with its leather piping and lovely detail and Nancy’s black embroidered coat is a winner! Great post!
