In My Future, I See Vintage Coats

I was feeling a little fancy today, so I decided to sport one of my favorite blouses, a new piece of costume jewelry, a vest...and a fake fur jacket. There are quite a few things that I don't like about fall and winter, but I always, always, always look forward to breaking out my vintage jackets and coats. While its hard to let go of long afternoons, warm breezes, and a life devoid of static cling, there's just something about a great coat (or lots:) that manages to get me excited for winter...not to mention the hats, scarves, gloves...etc...that go along with them.

Well, this fall and winter may be the most exciting yet, judging by the coats that I've collected over the past few months. I've had such luck and the little jacket in this post may have been the cherry on top (so far:). Its resembles nothing else in my closet or anything I've ever chosen to wear, but when I saw it on the rack at my local thrift store, I just knew. Unfortunately, there was no price tag attached and they will not sell an item without a tag. So I came back every day for two days and was lucky enough to find it there the second time I returned. Well, my heart skipped a beat and I felt pretty darn fancy today when I wore it for the first time.
