today is my boyfriends birthday, he turned 30! i had a surprise party for him on friday, it was fun, he was totally surprised! today we lounged around mostly, i made breakfast and we watched some boardwalk empire. left the house for a bit to stop at the thrift store and get some falafel to bring home and eat and watch more boardwalk empire ha. then i worked on wrapping some christmas gifts. im handmaking a few things this year, the recipients will be very pleased i think!
something about this coat im wearing, i have had it for almost two years and never even tried it on due to the real mink fur collar. i had alway intended to sell it, and was going to this winter but then i tried it on last week and decided to keep it, at least for a bit. despite the fur, its beautifully made, a d great color and its not too often you come across something this beautiful in a thrift store. my boyfriend, who is vegan, thinks otherwise. he doesn't really like that im wearing it one bit, and i see what hes saying. i dont lie to wear fir either.. but in this case, its 60+ year old fur ob a coat that is otherwise a work of art in my eyes. i would never wear new fur, only vintage, and even then i wouldn't wear it much. i would take faux fur over real any day. how do you other vintage wearing ladies feel about this?
