Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps

Marc by Marc Jacobs coat. Deena & Ozzy corset belt. Antique lace scarf. Bow barrette. Chanel snowflake earrings. Costume flower ring. Floral tights. Chanel 'Maxi' bag. Chanel ballerinas.
Today I had a mission: find a new vintage winter coat... I've had this Marc by Marc Jacobs herringbone jacket since college; while I love its white fur collar, the twin frontal pockets & its big plastic buttons, I wanted something fresh for this season. My outfit morphs from mod to little lady with a lace scarf (I reappropriated my mom's wedding veil) & a beige Chanel purse/a pair of flats - the perfect pastiche for trekking through the East Village's vintage stores. Ultimately I found my soulmate in overcoat-form: it's a vintage Montgomery Ward wool camel coat, hooded, trimmed in fur/floral fabric & buckles closed - pictures coming soon...
