Ooh Child

Vintage suede coat. Costume amethyst ring. Nicole Miller windowpane tights. Straw bag. Delman boots.
"When we go to Morocco, I think we should have completely different names & be completely different people" - Penny Lane, Almost Famous
A snowy landscape is the perfect backdrop for a winter coat; this boxy straw bag is a surprising choice for the season, but mixing tactile materials builds a richer outfit. Penny Lane from the movie Almost Famous often sparks my imagination - here it was her green velvet jacket with a white collar. I've had this suede overcoat trimmed in shaggy fur since high school & the intervening years served to further endear it to me. The more I shop vintage, the more I realize how lucky I was to find this coat in such excellent condition... The opportunities of youth & beginner's luck shouldn't be taken for granted; sometimes what comes easiest is what's meant to be.
