Oh, that’s right, my camera doesn’t talk. This is what happens when you take your own photos. I’m jealous of all the bloggers with husband/boyfriends/roommates who take their photos. I have to set up my tripod, use my remote and I can’t tell if my bun is even or not. Oh well. Ya’ll get to see my side bun today. It’s kinda 80s, right?!
I realized I posted an outfit with the coat yesterday, but not everyone knows the story behind the coat. Last winter, I headed to a thrift store near my home. I found this coat and a 60s curly wool coat with the original buttons AND mink collar. I bought them both for less than $20. They’re in excellent condition and are really, really warm.
And, just to let everyone know, I don’t purchase NEW fur. But if I find something vintage (like the other coat), with real fur, I’ll buy it. It may sound weird, but that fur collar is the only real fur I own, and that poor mink was gone in the 60s, long before I ever owned the coat.
So, yes, that’s how I justify it!
