Today’s Attire : Vintage Luxe

Hello, hello, my darlings… yesterday I was awoken by a phone call from my friend Jim Hill reminding me that we were supposed to go to the Deco Show to look at antiques and vintage odds and ends. Honestly, I was going to see the furniture, and my boyfriend was going crazy over the really interesting housewares we saw.

I came across a table with old hats, and found this vintage feather fascinator and another hat for $15. I had been eyeing some I saw on etsy, and at Venus Superstar, but this time I couldn’t resist. The show also had an entire area dedicated to vintage fashion, a smaller version of the Vintage Fashion Expo, with some of the same dealers. Vendima, a San Francisco boutique had the coat I’ve been looking for. Leather with a fur collar, it’s vintage but it feels modern. It’s really rare to see leather coats with this kind of cut. Ah… now I can be warm and not steel my boyfriends jackets.

  7. LOVE it! Tonally, the feathers work really well with your hair. Plus, you have a great take on SF style, without veering into twee.

    Darling photo, BTW.

  18. I have a feather fascinator a lot like that one but I can’t wear it without looking really old-fashioned.

    You make it look so modern and glamorous . . . I’m jealous! :)
