I have been dying to "dress up" a little. I figured what better occasion than some errands right? ;)
I bought this coat over the summer at Ruby Slipper for $15!! It came from the same woman as this hat and has a tag inside that reads "1955". The inside is quilted and the cuffs have a hidden knit cuff for extra warmth! Three of the buttons in the front had fallen off and there were only two in the coat pocket. I loved the coat so much I figured I would buy it anyway and improvise.
As it turns out when I went to sew the buttons back on and have a look at my button stash for suitable replacement I found another matching button sewn under the collar of the coat! Score! I promptly took it off and sewed to the front of the coat with the other two! Good as new!
This skirt is a winter standby for me. I really love it and always look forward to wearing it in the winter. And I'm particularly loving it with my new heels from Forever 21!
