my mother's closet

Rummaging in the "for dry cleaning" bag that sat collecting dust in a dark corner of the garage when there, tucked between an emerald velvet dress and a shoulder padded blouse I found a coat. Black, thick wool, four buttoned with fur trimmed collar and matching cuffs.It simply screamed martinis and stockings held up with a lacy garter belt (mom?) I quickly pulled off all my clothes and threw it on like an oversized dress. Paired it with my funky Aldo Rise block heels and took some pics by the shed. This vintage beauty of a coat will definitively be seeing New York fashion week this Fall. Adorned with the red lip and diamonds it deserves.

Oh and, thanks mom.  

What's your favorite place to find awesome vintage??
