Giving me the chills

It has gotten quite cold, and as usual, I feel like I am at a complete loss as to what to wear.

I do like two the maxi skirts I purchased from Old Navy - there was a coupon code for 30% off when I got them, so each only cost $21. I don't normally like to buy multiples of an item, it usually works out that I wear one all the time and completely ignore the other. I'm hoping that I get my money's worth out of both of these however, and you'll be seeing the wine colored version later this week.

I also thrifted this vintage fur collar over the weekend - the thrift store was having a half off sale, so it only set me back $4! I suppose as much as I hate cold winter weather, I do like being able to wear fur, both real and faux; it's cozy and so luxurious.

Can you say classy lady? I love this fur on you, Lyddie! It looks so good, especially against the leather and with that maxi skirt. Looking forward to seeing the wine colored skirt, because it sounds quite lovely. :)

Lynne DeVenny said...

I'm dying to pet that collar. It is so exquisitely beautiful.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Wow, this fur is amazing. White is unusual and looks striking against your jacket.

I don't know what to wear either. I'm like... gloves?

you got quite a bargain on your fur. I have yet to incorporate fur into my winter wear. I dont feel cool enough to pull it off. You on the other hand look sublime in it

Heather Joie said...

I am the same way, I get kind of caught up on transitioning my wardrobe from summer to fall, I stretch outfits by wearing tights under things until I can't take it anymore and am freezing lol

Annie said...

Loving the maxi with the layers...you look so cute & cozy!

Wearing fur is such a fine line when it is real, but I feel that if it is vintage, it's ok. I have a couple of those of my own. I love this stole! Looks great! And it gives this look a really glamorous spin!

TaraMixandMatch said...

How awesome is that fur collar! You will get so much use and warmth out of it.

Oooo-oh, that fur collar! It looks just so luxurious, I love how it looks over the leather jacket. (And that skirt! It's been a while since I've been into old navy but i love a lovely nude maxi skirt, I'm going to have to hunt one down now.) I wanted to say thank you so much for your sweet comment, I was so surprised and flattered! I'm a pretty big fan or your blog and have followed it for a while, but I've always been too shy to comment. (I don't know why, you're so lovely and sweet!) thank you so much, it meant quite a bit to me and was just so sweet of you! :)
