Walking the wharf



Today was amazingly nice outside.  It was about 50, but felt way warmer because of all of the snow days we've had the past few weeks.  I ventured out in this slip dress, vintage '50s swing coat lined with a beautiful fur collar, some wonderfully comfortable wedges, and a vintage '30s beaded collar & bracelet.  An inappropriate outfit for such a casual day, but sometimes, the most of casual days simply cry out for a special outfit.  This coat was the perfect find for me.. Emily from The Daily Fashionista and I went thrifting a few days ago and both agreed it could not be left in the store!  The coat was made in Virginia sometime in the '50s (but possibly earlier), making the piece that much more unique to me.



I'm sorry that I really don't have too much to say today! I opened at Starbucks several times this week, usually with school directly after, which is why I've been slacking on the posts this week.  I'm extremely tired right now and I'm glad that I get to sleep in a little tomorrow!  Also.. thank you, once again, for concerns on the broken nose! It's looking so much better right now, and although you can barely tell from the pictures, I just have a small scratch left (you wouldn't believe how much that cut bled when it happened!) and a bump where the break is.. the bump is kind of hard to see, but you can definitely feel it.  Ok.. enough grossing you guys out! This is a classy outfit and I probably shouldn't be discussing details on my broken nose on this post... Oh well, that's me in a nutshell I suppose!
