What does one wear for a marathon day of Christmas shopping? Well, how about the most inappropriate short dress you own? Hehe..Yeah...not so cool. I had to 'gracifully' bend down quite a few times due to dropping my handful of goodies, or to reach something, or to tie my shoes. You'd think I'd know better!!! To make my outfit a little more demure I wanted to add something that would compliment the lace. What compliments lace better than a pretty cashmere and fur jacket? Quite honestly, I think I would probably love this outfit a little more if the fur collar wasn't real, but I'll take what I can get:)
Speaking of this jacket, I actually bought it about 2 1/2 years ago from my local thrift shop and this is the first time I ever really wore it outside. I wanted to keep it pristine and tidy. When I first saw the jacket I immidiatley fell head over heels for it. But it was $30. According to the thrift shop manager, it was made by a tailor local to Norfolk in the 1940s. So I slept on it and the very next morning I made sure to buy it. When something creeps into your dreams in the middle of the night, that means something, right? hehe..
Well, I hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend!! I spent mine doing some holiday stuff and hanging out with my parents. Productive enough:)
