Weekend Eye Candy - Opera Coat 1937

Opera coats, like this one from 1937, are still pretty easy to find, as they were classic pieces that were always stored away in closets or attics. In fact, it wasn't unusual for a family to own one and pass it around between mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, and cousins for special occasions. Usually made of velvet, they often had ermine fur collars, as does this one.
