(Vintage Christian Dior coat, Louis Vuitton backpack, Alexander Wang loafers)
Every time I acquire a vintage item I always wonder about it’s previous life and owner(s). How did they style it? I came across this coat in a vintage store in Paris. I love textured garments so my eyes were instantly drawn to this large mass of green faux fur. It is a little too big for me, there are some bald patches and it is really quite heavy, but I really don’t care about these faults at all. I guess there are just some things that you adore, even if some of their parts are a little wrong.
(Comme des Garçons jacket, ASOS furry dress, Marséll boots)
An old friend of mine helped pick this jacket out for me a while ago, it is from Comme des Garçons’ Fall 2012 ‘Paper Doll’ collection. It is definitely one of my most treasured items! To be honest though, I find it quite difficult to wear. I think I attribute this to it’s shape, however the shape is what I love about it most! This ASOS dress (which I bought for $20 – excellent!) is one of the items I always wear with this jacket. I love how the textures and their shades of pink differ. Red and pink is also one of my favourite colour combinations ever!
