I temporarily lost my mind. I bought myself a Persian lamb coat.
Perhaps I should say that my husband bought me one for Christmas in absentia.
It cost $30, which is the most I've ever paid, especially at thrift store prices. It had just been hung on the rack. I slipped it on and instantly felt like the most glamorous woman in Goodwill.
This, while wearing stretch pants and no lipstick.
For a vintage coat, the cut is remarkably modern--car length, with a swing back and high collar. I imagine myself wearing earrings to Fresh Market and slipping into church with a clutch instead of the diaper bag.
I'll have to ditch the Crocs.
