Stepping out in Vintage Mink & Tartan

While much of the country is in a deep freeze, mild temperatures are still in full effect here in Southern California. Since I'm originally from the Midwest (Detroit), I have a love for warm weather pieces. However, it seems I don't get as much wear out of them now. Whenever temps dip low enough, I happily pull out pieces from my winter stash.

There's something about vintage mink that makes me feel glamorous. I decided to dress it down with a wool tartan blazer and NYDJs. Although I don't like cold temperatures, I do enjoy the clothing that it calls for!



Vintage mink hat: Saks Fifth Avenue, thrifted in Chicago
Blazer: Ralph Lauren
Jeans: NYDJ (similar here, here, and here)
Booties: MIA (also seen here and here)
Crossbody bag: Coach, throwback circa 1998

  1. Awn, I know the feeling! Where I live we have really soft temperatures all over the year, not really cold winters although it's ''cold'', but not as much as I wished to wear fur coats, scarfs and the usual winter stuff... So, whenever it's a bit colder than usual, I take out of the closet all the stuff and take ''advantage'' of the weather.
    You look really chic! :)
    Thanks for the comment on my blog by the way.

    See ya!

    1. Thanks! Funny story: I had this blazer for several years before I knew that it could button up to the neck and that it had a suede strip underneath the collar!

  3. I'm from Cali but as much as I love the weather, I do wish it was a little bit colder her because the 80 degree weather in winter isn't as fun. I love the winter fashion of wearing coats, hats, gloves and all that but never really get to wear it here because it never gets cold enough. But your outfit is super fab, love the coat and hat. :)
