catherine deneuve's mink coat

This photo of Catherine Deneuve arriving at a European airport in 2005 embodies everything I want to be, now and always. Blonde chignon, glasses, oxblood nails, british tan Hermès birkin (doubt I will ever own one of my own, but a girl can dream). I also love that big mink coat! I would never buy a new fur, though -- I always purchase vintage. Speaking of, I found this pretty fur on Etsy and I'm dying to purchase it. Do you think it's too dressy to wear to class? :)

I love fur and own a vintage short mink that I nabbed from my grandmother's closet after she passed away. However I am terrified to wear it because of the rabid anti-fur nutters who I really don't think discriminate between new & vintage. Quel dommage.

LJ,

That mink sounds divine! In my opinion, there is a huge difference between a vintage fur and a new one -- there's absolutely no shame in wearing a fur from years ago. I honestly don't know why anyone would buy new when vintage is cheaper and more stylish. I say give it a whirl when the weather gets cold! X
