When is it Okay to Wear Fur?

     It's always okay to wear fur! When it is vintage or thrifted.
Hi everyone! If you haven't yet figured out yet, I love the thrift store. I can shop until my heart's content, find really cool stuff and I am helping people in need at the same time.

     Here are my favorite charitable contributions I have received given over the past year.

I believe that this cape is mink. Slight tear in the shoulder. $6.00. SCORE!

Suede jacket with sweater sleeves. Light enough to replace a blazer, warm enough that I wore it in 26 degree weather. I know, it was only to run to the car. $5.00

I love, love, love my black boots! The tall ones are J. Crew, the shorter ones (I call them Robin Hood boots) are unknown brand. Both pairs are leather. Did I mention how much I love them? $11.00 each pair.

I just love this picture. I had purchased it as a gift but I couldn't part with it. It is hanging in my kitchen. $7.00   
Mink coat. 1950s style long coat with 3/4 length sleeves. No defects or odors. Excellent condition! $29.99! And this wasn't even half off day. I gave this to my mom for Christmas 2009.
Project Photo365

This super cozy chair came with a matching ottoman. $75.00 and the condition was like new. Pillow - upcycled. Cat - Fromage. Age 11. Fromie was an upcycle of sorts, I found him as a feral kitten. I brought him home and tamed him. It took a while but he is a total darling now. Don't ya think? I am lucky if he ever lets me use my chair.....

Things like the codes on the right exposed and open to your public, (On the right of this page) need to be corrected. Go to your "DESIGN" options on the "dashboard" THEN: "add a gadget",.. scroll down to/ and copy and paste these "CODES" in "HTML/JavaScript"
DONE!
