So, this coat is the greatest gift that I've ever been given! My G'Ma came to visit last week and gifted me this amazing 70's Lynx coat! For one, you can't get Lynx anymore (not like I would buy new fur anyhow), but this is the softest most amazing coat I could ever hope to have, and never be able to afford. Outside of that, its standard operating procedure - riding pants and a top. With a coat like this, you don't need to much to look great.

Your G'ma is the best. That is amazing. AMAZING.

And I actually came to congratulate you on the Modcloth blogger of the moment! I am just thrilled to bits that they made you a trouser!!!!

You seriously fucking deserve it more than anyone I could imagine. So, yes. I was coming to congratulate you but then I got sideswiped by this amazing coat and here we are.

Congrats, Meg. You are the shit and I love you.

love your skinny legs <3

LyddieGal said...

That is quite the fur! After much deliberation, I've decided its okay to love a vintage fur. Because otherwise those gorgeous things would just go to waste.

While I don't buy fur, a big fluffy fur or faux fur coat can look so glam with anything.

Just want to say that, in my opinion, fur is a no no, whether new or vintage. It was still created in the same way.

Great coat! You're right, with a coat like that you don't need a spectacular outfit to make it perfect.

liza said...

While I adore the look of fur, I would never wear real fur, vintage or new. I'd love a faux fur coat though, this post has inspired me to maybe take the plunge!

tailorstitch said...

the coat is such a statement piece! I'm really digging the colour of the AA legging, I think they're legging. random Im your 1000th follower on bloglovin :)

avalonne hall said...

Whoa that coat is stunning. Yeah I try not to wear new fur, or rather I don't wear real fur anyways, but when I was 14, my mom got me two fur pieces. Sad face. But she does she have a lot of old fur pieces, quite luxurious. But the fur coat from your g'ma is quite stunning and the color. Ah.

I think those AA riding pants are so cool, but they look so tight... when I see them on the mannequins and even on you, I feel like I couldn't wear them.

Miss Couture Vintage. X said...

Wow!

You're incredibly trendy. I love your style! The American Apparel pants are my absolute favourite. They go so well with the fur coat (which is always a vintage commodity).

Please follow my blog on!

Much love. X
