Does Vintage Fur Earn A Pass?
On Christmas Day in Dallas, we had snow and the temperatures went below freezing. The following days had temperatures in the 20s and 30s. In Dallas, that means its time to pull out the fur coat...even if you will have a few hours of the year to wear it.

Do we give those furs a pass?? Vintage stores are filled with fur coats (real and faux), in all colors and shapes...and the prices...
We were hosting a Christmas get-together and I was running late as usual. I grabbed one of my trusty vintage leisure pants, paired it with my Gap tank and threw a Ann Taylor cardigan on top. I love the mixture of the different patterns with the common orangey coral color in the pant and cardigan. I was so comfortable all evening. *photo courtesy of my Mother-in-law

However, the most important thing to remember about vintage clothing is..." any clothing that is less...
