32 In Misc


I feel like I have neglected my blog all week.  I've been so busy with Christmas and helping Jane out, and of course the site too.  I recently found this vintage lapin coat on E-bay.  Lapin is nothing but sheared rabbit, but somehow lapin sounds better.  This coat is so obviously from the 80's—I love the exaggerated swing.  Here is a link to the sellers Fur1 


This coat is so warm too.  We've had an unusually cold winter this year…


My favorite Chloe boots.  Jeans from Madewell.  I love their jeans.  They come in different lengths, and are quite affordable.  I'm over ridiculously priced jeans.

By the way, Karen and I are going to shut the site down for the year on Monday morning, and Monday will be our last day to ship, so if you're thinking about anything, you'll want to make your purchase before Monday morning.  To date–all orders have been shipped, and are on their way!

We plan to re-open early January with a big sale!

    We all love that four letter words! TeeHee*
    Cool coat! I tried on a brand spankin new fox fur jacket the other day. Gorgeous! Until my mom said to me; “If you’re not famous, then you shouldn’t wear fur. You might look tacky.” Hmmmpppfff* (>.<) Not that I'd get one, my nose is too sensitive for it. C'est ma vie.

    I bet that coat IS warm–it’s also stunning. I love it with the Chloe boots, too. Very outdoorsy chic!

    Yay — a post! Love that coat. The swing is fantastic. And agree with you wholeheartedly about being over-priced jeans…I’d rather spend the money on well designed shoes and a coat than on a name or design on the pocket of my jeans!

    I’ve always loved those Chloe boots!
    I agree about Madewell jeans too.
    Wishing you, Jane, Carol and your sweet doggies a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    agree! no need for ridiculously priced jeans. If Levis have been good enough for 150 years, they’re good enough for me πŸ™‚

    Alina–I had no idea either–I had to google it. Was a bit disappointed, thought I had something really exotic.

    I die for those Chloe boots. I saw Jane was wearing them awhile back, too, right? Hmm, I shall check out Madwell jeans. I can’t find the purrrfect skinnies. I’m over spendy jeans, too. Oddly enough, the pair I wear the most are from H + M.

    Definitely ’tis the season for fur! This looks so amazing and current! I recently got a 60’s fur shawl at Goodwill for $15.51 and had so much fun restyling it to look fresh. When I do that, I always think WWJD…What would Judy/Jane do? I think that it turned out OK because I got positive feedback when I posted it earlier this week, but you girls are always my go-to source for inspiration.
    Here’s wishing you, Jane, and Carol the most blessed of Christmases and a prosperous New Year!

    That is really pretty.
    I am torn when it comes to wearing fur, mainly because I eat a vegan diet. I do wear leather though, and love my shoes, boots and bags. (mostly shoes and boots).
    I inherited a beautiful vintage fur stole from my grandmother, that has her name embroidered inside of it. I also have a vintage mink cape, that someone gave to me. Both sit in my closet, wondering if they will ever get worn. I am trying to decide.
    I could never justify new fur, as we have the technology to create warm garments without using furs. Vintage furs however seem OK to me, and should be appreciated. Maybe I am a hypocrite, I don’t know.
    I would love to hear your thoughts on that, I would also love to hear Jane’s thoughts, as she is also a vegetarian.

    Beautiful coat! I’ve been a ‘looker’ of your blog since you started and I just love it! Are the Madewell’s you are wearing the ‘Rail Straight’ style? I’ve been looking for a style like this and would love to know. Thank you & Happy Holidays!

  • judy@judyaldridge.com

    Katie–These are the rail straight–and I got mine in a shorter length just for boots. Happy Holidays to you too!!

    I have to admit, that is a gorgeous coat. Although I personally don’t agree with new fur, I think that vintage fur is fine. And in this case, more than fine! I love the rich colour of the brown and you can just tell it is well made. Great with simple jeans and black boots- makes it stand out!
    Oh,and I just thought I’d let you know that I’ve done two sketched designs inspired by your style. I have posted them on my blog and sent you an email too, I hope you like them!

    as i cannot post a comment on Jane’s Sea of Shoes site, I’ll do it here:
    I was watching Fashion Tv tonight and guess what was it… le Bal des Debutantes 2009 and I saw Jane there! She was looking fabulous! All the girls were enchanting. The ball was a spectacular success for all of you, I presume.
    Merry Christmas and a happy new year 2010!
    Miau! =*

    Hi Judy
    I know you buy alot of vintage furs, and I saw an amazing vintage fox shawl on the ebay store indie cult vintage… I was wondering if you’ve ever purchased anything from them before. Theyre a top ebay seller, but i’m always a little nervous. thanks

  • judy@judyaldridge.com
    December 19, 2009 at 3:45 pm

    Hi Tracy–I love her site too! I have not personally purchased from her, but I know she has good feedback, so I would feel totally confident. I have purchased many, many items on E-bay, and have rarely had a bad experience. Good luck…judy

    My favorite jeans by far have been Madewell, and I am a denim addict! They’re just very cool, understated, and fit a woman’s body well. Those boots are insane…I would wear them with everything:)
