wishing the summer away

towards the end of august I'm always over-eager for fall to begin. maybe it's the thick, glossy autumn magazines or perhaps the anticipation of layering. this year one thing's for sure- I'm itching to break out my new vintage coats!

first 3 photos: Used & Abused vintage cape, club monaco belt, h&m booties -- second 3 photos: grandmother's mink coat from the 50s, parasuco jeans, grandmother's feather lariat necklace from the 60s, vintage red studded heels from the brooklyn flea

That first one is the perfect mix between a cape and a coat. I want one!

kristin said...

Yeah, my thoughts exactly, UP. Can you believe it's from Sears in the 70s? The girl that I got it from has a TON. Check out my post tonight for more details...

Your (grandmother's) mink coat is gorgeous - and I love your sense of style. :)
