1.) At least one fabulous coat- In my neck of the woods, winter weather is often wet and bitter cold below zero temperatures so regardless of what I'm wearing, I can't live without a great coat. For the past several years, my winter coat of choice has been a dark-colored wool coat, reaching about mid-thigh length. Since I have 3 cats, I try to avoid black but Target has always been a source of gorgeous and affordable vintage-y coats. My very first vintage purchase ever was a lavender colored wool coat from the 50's which I bought in middle school from a posh vintage shop in St Louis. I wore that coat till it fell apart, then I sewed it back up and wore it till it fell apart again! If you're tall like me and vintage coats tend to have slightly too-short sleeves, you can either add a cuff made of contrasting fabric to elongate the sleeve or wear the coat as-is with long gloves for a "cropped sleeve" look.Check out these gorgeous, larger sized vintage coats for sale right now at Vint Condition on Etsy.

Again, Target is my favorite place to shop for socks. They have such an excellent selection and often, you can find multi-packs on sale. Here's vintage newbie me last year in some of my Target socks...
5.) An Ice Scraper- Not vintage or fashion-related but hey, a girl has to be practical sometimes! When I'm shopping for winter moisturizer and socks, I always buy a new, awesome ice scraper for the car. It saves my hands from getting cold, dry and cracked and saves by butt from freezing! Do yourself a favor and buy one to keep in the car and one to keep by the door, for those mornings when the door freezes shut and the car is covered in snow.
