More Than Lace And Ribbon

There's nothing like the combination of vintage fur and creamy lace to make me feel all fancy and posh. Outfits like this are exactly what I love to wear, but they also make me feel like I'm masquerading a bit. Most days I feel like an awkward nerd, not some...oh, I don't know upper east-sider? Whatever I'm channeling visually it doesn't really change my homebody, old lady habits of lengthy book reading and puzzle making.

The cold weather lately is making me never want to venture outside again, but I must admit it's nice the way the chilly temperatures keep my favorite places to go walking pleasantly empty. I imagine in the summer these beaches and pathways will be populated and I'll have to find some other place to wander for solitude...

  7. I think that a nice fur collar can make gorgeous coat out of everyday piece.

  8. That light collar is such a fresh touch with this coat.

    I never swapped the collar on mine yet. Great look, so much softer than the black collar it cam with and particularly well matched with the lace :)

    Gorgeous :)

  9. Beautiful, Rebecca! I definitely don't think you're masquerading, it seems very you, but I know what you mean, sometimes I put looks together that borderline too costumey and I'm not sure about them... nontheless, you are posh in my book!
