fur fights “brr’s”…

…though it doesn’t really get too many chances here in Texas!

hallelujah! el fin of my summer classes! i will be rushing to finish up some DIY’s i’ve been dying to get to – and get two of them to the boys who commissioned them. (david & jimmy, thanks for being so patient!) hopefully i don’t screw up and i can post them on here for your viewing pleasure. speaking of viewing pleasure, here’s a quick recent purchase post: about a week ago, i snagged a great vintage genuine fur stole from the 1940-50’s! it’s a gorgeous mahogany, with dark brown stripes. it’s very glossy, but i’m afraid the original owner boxed it up – which my readers know from my “i.love.vintage.” post is a fur care no-no. alas – i’ll have to send it to a fur cleaner to have it cleaned and hopefully have some of the “fluffiness” restored. it’s due to the flatness that i can’t tell for sure if it’s mink or muskrat fur… diagnosis to be made later. other recent purchases included a pair of vintage skinny black suede pants, and a dead stock (new but discontinued) sterling star cut-out ring, with a diamond chip in the center. i’ll definitely be thrifting up a storm on my little road trip through college station & austin – apparently everyone i was hoping to see in college station and san antonio are headed to austin this weekend as well, so i’ve changed plans and will be in austin for most of the weekend.

p.s., readers: surprise! i know you stop by and visit, because wordpress has a “stats” page. it tells me how many people have stopped by to take a look-see, and what pages/posts were read. i love that you come here, but it seems you all need encouragement to drop a line! just in case you thought you needed a wordpress account to post a comment – you don’t. i’d love to hear from any of you, and get opinions on fashion posts, or even questions about the topics i’ve written about. as long as everyone is agreeable or disagrees politely, come one, come all.
