My Vintage Vanity: Fur Shawl Collar Cardigan

 I simply adore my ivory fur collar cardi I scored in Phoenix a couple of years ago! It adds glamour to the simplest of outfits. Rhinestones, fur, lace lining! What's not to love? I have a similar one in black with brown fur that I got on Etsy awhile ago too. I can see a collection forming. 
I usually wear this to work with either a pencil skirt or over a vintage dress to stay warm. Here is how I wore it out to brunch over the weekend:
 Wide leg jeans from Grey Ant. I bought those at Intermix in Miami years ago. The first jeans or pants for that matter that I have ever had to cut or hem. You can't tell in these photos but I'm pretty tall and usually long jeans are hard to find! 

 My bracelet, while hard to see here, was a gift from my husband. It's a 1950's "copy" bracelet, meaning the original owner in the 50's had the real diamond one safe and sound in her safe! This was her duplicate to wear out. 

 Oh, and do you like my new Bettie bangs? 

 Bone platforms from Chelsea Crew. I bought these in Brooklyn. 

I love dark hose with a light shoe! Knee-his from Sock Dreams.

ps. Have you entered my Shabby Apple Moon River Dress giveaway? It ends TONIGHT!!

Wow, I love it with the jeans! You look so chic. I have a similar one I found at the thrift store, it's cream with brown fur and the fur detaches. My bff has one with white and brown fur so you can swap them out on the same cardi. I haven't worn mine yet but I need to do it soon!! x
