I will always love purple…

Today was my two and a half year anniversary with my boyfriend Michael. I was awoken by beautiful roses. Purple and red to be exact. The purple ones are especially pretty. Just a little inspiration for the fall.

While looking through the August issue of Vogue today I noticed model Lara Stone in an amazing fox fur Gucci jacket. Of course the editorial was styled by none other than Grace Coddington, who in my mind is the god of all stylists.

On a recent trip to the Goodwill I snagged this vintage jacket for $7. It was an amazing find. I am tempted to put it in my store but I think this one may be in my closet for good.

Now the jacket is dry clean only and I cannot stress enough to you the importance of abiding by that rule with vintage clothing. A piece like this was made in a different time meaning the dye could be more prone to run. Think of it this way… if you get an amazing jacket like this for $7, a $7-10 dry cleaning charge isn’t so bad in order to maintain the piece and kill any possible things that could be lurking in the clothing.
