I know some of you are waiting to see some of my vintage finds that I purchased over the weekend. But, you are just going to have to wait a little longer, because I haven’t unpacked yet. This vintage lambswool and mink coat was one of my favorite purchases from last year. A lady looked at this coat, but decided not to buy it, and hung it back on the rack. I then tried it on and thought it would look great with jeans, so I bought it. About 20 minutes later, the lady came back looking for the coat and was terribly disappointed that it was gone. I’ve been guilty of doing that myself. Don’t you hate it when that happens? This coat has the original label that reads J.O. Nadeau Furs, Quebec, Canada. As you can see in the picture, it has been monogramed MJ. Maybe it belonged to Michael Jordan. LOL! I love the color of the coat, I don’t know if you call it gray or silver. Most lambswool coats are black, so I think this one is a little unique. The mink is only on the pocket flaps, but it gives it a little added interest. You can’t see in the picture, but right beside the monogram is a little zippered pocket, a perfect spot to hide a little spending money. Here s a similar one on ebay, but without the mink.The necklace I have on is one that I purchased in August from a vendor, at a woman’s club conference, called the Neck’d Ladies. They always have the neatest jewelry, and are really reasonably priced. I think I paid 25.00 for this, that is usually their price point.My bracelet’s are vintage hinge bracelets. They both have a pin that pulls out to let the bracelet open, and then you re-insert the pin. I think the dark brown one is wood, and the lighter one with the green stone is bone. Here is a very similar one on ebay.These jeans are high-rise distressed Rockstar from Old Navy. They are now on sale, so head on over and pick up a pair. I like that they are a little distressed, but not in shreds. I posted a picture on pinterest of me in a pair of jeans that are a little more distressed, and some of the ladies commented that maybe I was too “old” to wear that trend. I hate that for them, they are missing out on a cute look, and probably a lot of fun.I bet those same ladies don’t wear shoes like these either. These are Kathy Von Zeeland, and I purchased them at the OVC outlet along with the Dooney & Bourke purse. I bet you are sick to death of hearing me say I bought things from that store. Sorry! I found the same shoes on ebay, they are called “Ozzie”.
I love mixing my vintage pieces in with my everyday looks. If you like this look, then go to thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, antique markets, and ebay. If you don’t like it, then wait a few days, go on pinterest and leave your comment. Hahaha
