Wearing Vintage to Work

Sooooooo this nippy Fall day..... (and by that, I mean 45*) was screaming for me to take my favorite vintage coat out of hiding and let everyone admire it today!!!

This IS my favorite coat. I feel like old an old Hollywood starlette every time I rock it. I scored this incredible 1950s wool coat at a consignment store on the clearance rack for $15. Like, really? She sat all alone for months on a sale rack before I brought her home????.....It was meant to be. It's the perfect length for my tall frame and I love the over sized buttons and faux fur detail on this one!

Since velvet is totally IN this season, I also paired it with this great knee length black velvet skirt I got from a clothing swap a while back. I wanted to add a lux contrast with the silver silk Bebe wrap top with vintage lace details. I am all BFF'd out today as she gifted me this beautiful top, scroll tights, and the most precious Cynthia Rowley cashmere gloves. They are too cute with that ruffle!!

My shoes are a faux suede Nine West pump from TJmaxx. I added some vintage shoe clips ( a 50cent Estate sale find) to add interest and a fun detail to an otherwise plain shoe. I feel like these great accessories get passed up all of the time because most people don't know what they are. They are such a simple, yet great invention!!! I think I am going to hunt for more of these clips, so cute, huh?!

$15 Fabulous Vintage, YES!!

Vintage Shoe Clips add instant flai

$3 costume jewelry from the mall, It reminded me of Betsey Johnson
