Time to pull out your furs ladies! It’s that time of year again for those fur coats, capes, and collars! Its time for a full force fur frenzy!! Now, real or faux is your preference, but either way there are some great ones out there. With furs, I’d opt for vintage…chances are the quality is a smidge better.
This mink coat I found at one of my favorite CLE vintage stores in Lakewood-Chelsea’s Vintage Clothing and Costume. Last year, I was inspired by Carrie Bradshaw to find a fur coat of my own…so off to Chelsea’s I went and found this lovely number for about $70!! Major score for a real mink coat!! :) I promised myself last year that I’d try my hardest to get more wear out of it this year, since I bought it a little late in winter last year and wasn’t able to enjoy it much before the weather broke. So here is my first outfit of this winter featuring the fur coat ;) (with many more to come, Fingers crossed!).
When I put this outfit together, I thought…’Wow, I’m really vibing a few different time periods here’. A little bit of the 20′s, a touch of 70′s hippie, and a splash of modern day. But hey, I’m all for eclectic fashion, and that’s the GREAT thing about fashion of the 2000′s…we’ve essentially reached a point in our modern day fashion where ‘anything goes’. Not as in, anything matches…but more as in there are no more rules. So, GO for the eclectic! Afterall, it’s a little more interesting that way! ;)
I love these bright cobalt blue pumps. A great dash of color, right?! I can’t remember why I got them in the first place, but I do remember that I had something specific in mind. Regardless, I found them at a Dillard’s shoe sale for $20 or something like that. Those shoe sales are surely what justify women’s shoe obsessions ;)
Lace top from the Lookbook Store; fur coat from Chelsea’s Vintage Clothing and Costume in Lakewood, OH; side zip cords from Anthropologie; blue suede pumps by Gianni Bini from Dillard’s shoe sale a couple years ago. Sparkly headband is actually a sparkly belt from Anthropologie- buckled, twisted and pinned…. Nothing wrong with being innovative, right? ;)
