Warm Fuzzies

I'm a sucker for soft, fuzzy things. I spotted this black (fox?) fur collar at an antique store yesterday and was intrigued. I think stand-alone collars are a cool idea in general because you can add them on to any outfit, and this one felt so amazing I just had to get it. It was unmarked for price so I had to ask, and the lady called the stall vendor and said, "she said 12 but she'll take 10." Hmm. I don't think she was supposed to tell me that second part. But hey, I'm not complaining! After considering it for a few minutes I decided to go for it and add a touch of luxury to my life.

I'm an animal lover so have always been wary of fur items even though I really do like wearing fur (it just feels sooo nice!). I felt pretty good about this purchase though; since it's vintage/second hand I don't feel like I'm financially supporting the industry.

It's so warm! It should be perfect for winter. What I like about it is that I can even wear it with a plain old t-shirt. Fun fun!

Price: 10.00

You have always been attracted to fur pieces. That looks like a versatile piece. Fun too.

BTW - we are still getting that weird message when going to this blog. It says there are instructions on your "dashboard" for getting rid of it.

I love this blog. I'm thinking of doing one about retro home furnishings. Just for giggles.

Love the photo of you at the top of the page and the tag line. Too cute!

Forget what I said about the message. I refreshed our link and it is alright now.

I like it! I saw a very similar fur collar at a resale shop the other day. I stood there forever contemplating a purchase but didn't buy it. If it's still there when I go back, I might need to get it....
