advent coat


Full disclosure: I hate shopping. I know, I know... fashion blogger that doesn't like shopping, how weird. But it's pretty much the worst outside of important things that are actually the worst. This ritual of going store to store in hopes of finding something that doesn't suck on endless racks of things that are awful in quality, design and fit is terribly unappealing. However -- vintage shopping is the one time I'm sort of ok with this ritual. Maybe it's because vintage shopping feels more like a quest through past treasures that yields some extraordinary finds. So when I saw this coat in my local Bushwick vintage store, Urban Jungle, I knew immediately it had to be mine. It's got this Kate Hudson in Almost Famous thing going on (her coat was the only good part of that movie) and it was a grand total of $30. Yes, vintage shopping does nicely. oh and the pendant necklaces were hand-made by me.  。◕‿◕。

  22. Aww, I love that movie! I'm sorry you only liked the coat. ;) It was a great coat, though, and yours does look similar! Plus, it looks amazing on you! I'm always envious of the cool settings for your photoshoots, too. I'm sure I could find some if I took the time and patience to do so -- and a tripod might help! Anyway, hope you're doing well and hope you have a merry Christmas!! :)
