ELEPHANT

DSC_1213

How cute is this vintage brocade elephant jacket?  It was a purchase on eBay a while back.  It traveled with me to a trunk show in NY, and went surprisingly unnoticed.  I packed it away, and forgot all about it.  This weekend while rummaging through piles of vintage, I pulled it out, and decided it’s a pretty special jacket.  It’s now back in my main closet….

I love how detailed each elephant is…and how the jacket is cut away.

Paired with my new Miu Miu’s.  I love these shoes!  Remember this pair from the same collection on one of the Olsen twins?

They’re on sale at Net-a-Porter!! So tempting! (pic from Olsens’s Anonymous)

Also wearing old Zara blouse.  I need to visit Zara again.  I have found a lot of really great things there.

Hope everyone is staying cool!

    You are just the cutest! I love the shoes! I know it’s about the jacket which is great but I LOVE the Shoes! I like whatever that olsen has on too! My mother loves elephants to much! I can only imagine how crazy she would go if i brought her something like this to the house.

    Hi Judy!
    Your amazing jacket came from my Shop! I was so honored that you purchased this several months ago and have been waiting to get a glimpse of it. Never did I think it would be a featured item on your blog!
    Love the way you styled it….as always your sense of style is perfection!

    Love the artistry on the shoes. So beautiful! Who are the jeans by in this picture?

    Also, I am interested to know your opinion on the stylelikeu.com post on Terence Connors, because we are of the same age group. In one of the pictures, he is wearing a cloak from a Nazi officer that was left in his grandfather’s house in Germany. Would you ever wear such a thing? I, for one, think it is very bad taste. He is probably too young to appreciate the horribleness of it all. I made a comment, but they removed it because they told me they didn’t want to offend Mr. Connors. It is just the same as someone wearing a KKK robe because he likes how the fabric drapes. Just wrong!

    Andrea,

    My jeans are from Hysteric Glamour–purchased in Tokyo about 6 years ago. Regarding the Connors closet. My family if from the south-if my Great Grandfather was in the KKK, I would not wear that robe proudly and display it as some type of family heirloom. I think you’re right, he just doesn’t get it.

    the offbeat way you put outfits together is always inspiring, and always fun to see!
    and that elephant jacket is definitely a keeper.

    I absolutely love this jacket but… I am most amused by the fact that you wore an elephant print jacket to…a trunk show!!!! The pun too went surprisingly unnoticed 🙂

    Stunning ensemble. As always you wear it exceptionally well.
