Wardrobe Chronicles: Thrift Score

January 30, 2008

Lately when I see fur coats, it’s either little old ladies strolling down the street or stylish young women rocking it their own way. Images of lovely ladies on the street style blogs and the wonderful Rhiannon give us fresh, interesting ways to think about styling it. Of course, there are many varying opinions on the matter of wearing or not wearing fur. To me, vintage furs feel like a type of recycling plus there’s that old-school look I’m after.

However, in the back of mind, Margot Tenenbaum resides as one of the queens of the quirky and I can finally live out that fantasy with this thrift store find.

                    Faux Fur Coat

This little faux fur number is perfect for acting out my most melancholic and contemplative moments. Or maybe I’ll just wear it when I’m frustrated with a bout of writer’s block.

I also scored this purse and scarf.

      That coat was a great find! Very very Margot Tenenbaum–I forgot all about her fur coat but she’s definitely an inspiration. :)
