Snow Creature

Vintage What Comes Around Goes Around coat. Vintage Escada belt. Vintage flower headband. Vintage costume pearl & black/white enamel (a souvenir from my mom’s trip to Martha’s Vineyard) bracelets. Hue cable-knit tights. Vintage Dopp by Buxton kit. Delman boots.
Fantasy vacation time... I'd hop a private plane to St. Moritz (the ski resort town in Switzerland), where I'd bunny hop down the slopes, shop for gossamer gowns & swan about the hotel in my finery - repeat as needed until I float away on a cloud of complacency. Of course I'd need to pack several furs to wage proper snowball fights; I'd make my debut in this one: it's vintage from What Comes Around Goes Around but originated from the defunct furrier, George Strain. Vintage has stood the test of time & as such is intrinsically superior to nouveau - to wit: my flowering/beribboned Maypole-esque headband, a suede Escada belt stamped with xoxo's & my dad's old dopp kit that I carry as a clutch (why not - a bon voyage = a spare change of jewels, a ruby lipstick & a dance card for the beaux).

  5. What a gorgeous mink and much needed on such a cold crisp day. The belt is a lovely touch too.

  6. Wonderful coat and you look great in it. Fur coats are one of the best vintage items to buy, since fur is so durable and fur style is ever so classic. Using a belt with the coat is a great idea, too. Splendid!
