Vintage Astra Fur

the artyologist- vintage 1967 astra fur coat with real fur collar

I don’t own very much vintage; most of what I wear is reproduction I have made myself, but I do have a few real vintage pieces. If I had to choose a favourite, it would be this Astra Fur 1967 faux astrakhan fur coat with a real fur collar, which I wore in my last post.

I found it for a song at a Goodwill thrift store a few years ago, in surprisingly good shape. The black dot on the left side of the collar is actually a button- there is a buttonhole on the other side of the collar.

So, why is this coat my favourite? Not only because it is fabulous 🙂 but because I found an advertisement for this exact coat in a magazine called “Woman and Home” from 1967. (Were you wondering how I could date it so precisely?) It’s always neat when you find original advertisements, and especially when it is for something that you own!
