No, really. It’s cold outside. I live in Michigan. It was 7 degrees last night and I think the high was 19 today (as I write this). Yay winter! I guess winter is good for wearing warm sweaters and coats though. Like fur or faux fur. My mother-in-law let me borrow her vintage mink cape for my husband’s work Christmas party. I absolutely adored it and she surprised me by giving it to me for Christmas. I still cannot even believe it. Tears were a flowing… Mine. Hers. Even my husband got a bit verklempt.
I get that some of you may not wear fur. I understand. There are a lot of great faux fur options out there and they get better looking all the time. This piece is a family heirloom and it gets a pass. This cape was given to my mother-in-law upon the birth of my husband by her father-in-law (my husband’s greatly loved grandfather). And yes, I plan to wear it every chance I can get. I sported this look to Christmas dinner.
