Up until recently, I've always thought of outerwear as something that doesn't have to be fashionable. Maybe it's because I when I lived in Alaska, function was much more a priority than fashion, and I always took my coat off as soon as I entered a building. I had peacoats for the warmer Spring and Fall temperatures, then I switched to warmer, puffier coats for the numbing Winters. Now that I live in a state that experiences 4 distinct seasons, I have a bevy of outerwear options. And my options exploded when I realized that one can actually find some thrifted or vintage.
This is my second vintage faux fur coat ever (my first one can be seen here), and I totally feel like a pimp wearing it. But, hey, I'm a super warm pimp.
