Weekend Eye Candy - Jean Desses, 1951

I have a thing for full skirted princess coats from the late 1940s and early 50s.  This one by Jean Desses from 1951 makes me swoon with joy.  It's plaid!  Blue, green and brown plaid to be precise.  And look at the button detail on the pockets and sleeves! J'adore!
