I'm generally a faux fur girl through-and-through, but I love giving a new life to vintage real fur pieces, like the one I'm wearing here. My dad picked up the furs for this coat when he visited Ukraine almost forty years ago, and he had the coat custom made as a gift for my mom. While this definitely won't be an everyday coat for me, it'll be perfect for a fancy night out in the mountains.
You've probably noticed that I've been wearing my Current/Elliott jeans a lot recently. I've been obsessed with them ever since I picked them up at Saks before they shut down their store in Denver. Current/Elliott is one of the premium denim brands that has sizes all the way down to 23, so it's a great choice for petites. The ones I'm wearing are the Ankle Legging (no hem necessary!) in Blue/Black.
