Welcome (back)! After some thought, and a little (lot) of help from the Husband, I have decided to revamp this blog a bit. One of the things I love is vintage fashion. Before having kids, i.e., when I had more time, I would browse through vintage stores in NYC checking out all of the one-of-a-kinds finds.
I still like to do it when I can, which is not nearly enough. But hey, priorities! I’m going to feature some fab vintage pieces each week, some from my own collection and many on my wish list. I’ll also be writing about the other things I love including design and general lifestyle subjects. Leave me a comment to let me know which are some of your favorite pieces. I hope you enjoy what you see!
My first spotlight is on this emerald green jacket with black faux fur trim. Faux fur is having a major fashion moment these days. And for good reason – it’s stylish, sustainable and cruelty-free. I found this beauty about 3 years ago at Screaming Mimi’s, when it was still located down on Lafayette Street. Once I tried it on, I knew I had to have it.
I love how it stands out amongst the sea of black and grey coats out there (of which I own a few). It’s timeless and classic while having a bit of a modern edge. Of course, these days I mainly wear it to school drop-off, but who says moms can’t be stylish too?
