Road Trippin'

10.05.2009

'Evening everyone!
I just got back from a family function in Massachusetts (it took me about 60 tries until I spelled that name right) and I'm completely exhausted.

My dad & I drove about 8 hours in both directions, which gave us enough time to listen to the ENTIRE remastered Beatles' catalog.

Before we shoved off on our trip, I made a different sort of trip to the thrift store and FINALLY got a hold of a Mink collar that I can afford ($2 if that says anything for you). I only buy vintage fur out of moral constraint, and lemme tell ya, if I ever find it, stuff is expensive.

I attached the collar to an olive drawstring-waist coat I found in a Salvation army in Williamsburg, Brooklyn over the summer. It gives it a groovy militaristic feel

  14. I love the layered bright red scarves, and the way they compliment the fur, which in turn amps up that rad jacket. Lovely look, and fun pictures, as usual.
