the jacket project day 16

Lucky brand faux leopard fur jacket. My daughter bought me this for Christmas 2010. It’s soft, warm and very pettable.

Obviously, it says MOM!! Iz has an eye for what works, you know.

Hi Jazgal, hope you're doing well. Yes, you are so right, Isabel is my consultant on all things fashion related. She helped me a lot on this project, and even ruled out jackets she didn't see as photo worthy.

SO good to have the in-house consultant! Fun project too!

My personal tendency is towards vintage clothing shop finds - Certain Goodwills can have finds in blazers and jackets, and there are a couple of retro shops that I like to check in with every once in awhile - when the radar is up. :) My favorite so far is a vintage Evan Picone tailored grey wool twill - fits to a T!
Of course, I used to raid my mom's closet when I was in my teens - nothing like the authentic 40's shoes and dresses. Alas, those days are long gone, as are the clothes.
