Thrift Find: Vintage Hot Pink Smoking Jacket

I thrifted this vintage hot pink smoking jacket at a Salvation Army I had never been to. The color was POP-PING! WOW! I have absolutely no use for a smoking jacket but I threw it in the cart anyway. It was $3.  I simply could not say no to that price so it came home with me! Mmmhmmm.

The brand name is DeWeese California. I did a Google search to find out more information. I found a very well known DeWeese Designs. I'm not sure it's the same designer though. DeWeese Designs was based in California too and specialized in swimwear. I wonder if this is a vintage knockoff.

I removed the arts & craft paper tag and washed it right away (by right away, I mean I ignored the 3 bags of dirty laundry we already have and added it to the next load...4 days later). It's 100% nylon so the color can withstand a million washes and still look just as amazing. 

I love it and was super excited to wear it yesterday. I did a test run to see how it works as a jacket. What do you think? Can it pass?

Is it strictly boudoir? This isn't the first time I've bought vintage lingerie. All of my muumuus and slips are vintage but they're functional. I used to sell the fancies on eBay but now I just hoard them.

I'm wearing this one outside. I'm going back to the drawing board on styling it though. All black is usually such a winning solution.

i have not thrifted any vintage lingerie, but this piece looks good on you! not sure if i could pull it off and most likely would have to cinch it at the waist with a belt and wear like a caftan. and if you figured out how to add some length to it, it could be refashioned into one. enjoy your weekend;)

That color is truly popping! I think you can pull it off in public as long as you keep everything else tailored or structured.

Pink just isn't my color, though I have been known to wear a long sleeved pink oxford.
