36 In Misc


Our trip to Austin was quick, but very successful in terms of vintage acquisistions.  I found this great 70's fox coat at Feathers Boutique.  Feathers is one of our favorite stops in Austin.  It's right off of South Congress, in a blue painted store front, you can't miss it.   Check out their Sitting fur 

I really love it, and it was actually cold enough this particular  morning to wear it.  The heavy, brass toggle hardware is quite appealing, and I like how it looks so 70's.

    I love the coat! The front with the brown panels is amazing. I wish I could go to that vintage store. I am going to NYC this weekend….any good suggestions for vintage shops in NYC??

    my internet signal is weak today, so i’m not able to see the entire post. the coat looks gorgeous, though, as does that pretty hotel oasis. can’t wait to see more- internet issues notwithstanding…!

    I love your style and the blog, but I bet 15+ foxes had to be brutally murdered to make that coat πŸ™ At least it is vintage, but it’s still so sad to me…

    Oh How this makes me miss austin. Lived there for four years during my college years at UT. I love Feathers as well, and also Uncommon Objects? off of south congress.
    many celebs stay at hotel san jose and shop that part of austin as well.
    Oh! if you are ever there again, check out casa de luz for their macrobiotic breakfast/brunch. it is AH-MAZING, and addicting!!
    Can’t wait to see what other vintage stuff you guys got!

    Hi Judy, you wear that coat so well!! I love everything about this look, including your carefree hair.
    As many times as I’ve been to Austin I have never been to feathers. Will have to make a point to go their next time.
    I love the Hotel San Jose! It’s so cozy and inviting. The pictures are beautiful.
    Have a great day! It looks like it’s going to be another wet and gloomy one.

    Stunning photos, Judy! I wanted to write that I hope I look as chic as you when I’m a mother (I’m currently 24), but hell, I wish I looked as chic as you do RIGHT NOW! Happy to hear you had a fun and fruitful visit to Austin!

    Love the coat, and the fact that it’s vintage 70s.. it’s guilt free. Those little critters would have expired anyway, of natural causes, or old age.
    & I absolutely love the hotel!! So my taste.
