fascinator vintage from bohemian bisoux
purse vintage from clever nettle
shoes fletcher by lyell
When I first spotted this coat (at Time Zone Vintage in San Jose) I fell madly in love but I left it behind because I knew my bank account would thank me. And then I spent an entire week fantasizing about all the outfits I could wear it with, all the endless combinations. This sequined coat was the missing link, the holy grail of coats! I will admit I felt rather silly thinking about it so much, but at the end of the week I couldn't bear the thought of losing it forever so I called the shop and made it mine. It's one of those fancy pieces that somehow works, at least in my wardrobe, with nearly everything. When I picked it up from the shop the lady helping me asked if I was going to wear it for a special occasion and I happily replied, "Nope, I'm just going to wear it all the damn time for no reason!" I think she understood.
