1940s red dress vintage mink fur stole
What a crazy few weeks it's been! We celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving last week and I'm starting my new job this week. Lots going on but I've missed blogging! I'm glad to be home and at my comfy little desk again.

I have been having a blast with my new tripod and remote. It makes outfit photos so much easier, especially because it entertains the kids. I set my tripod up, get into position and Rhys snaps away! He's my official Junior Blog Photographer, and isn't he great!? This is his first selfie.




Just testing the light....




On Thanksgiving, I wore a dress that I have never had a chance to wear. I found it in a dark, dirty warehouse, piled up with other clothes and with some sad stains and rips. I finally got around to fixing it on Thanksgiving day.  It still has a strange black mark on one of the lapels that I cant remove so I may have to bedazzle it to match the rhinestones on the collar and hip. I never thought that bedazzling vintage was a good idea but here, it might work!

I also wore my vintage mink stole, which I think I have worn in public maybe once. I found these little fellas a while back at a flea market. There are so few occasions that are fancy enough for fur that I may just start wearing it to the grocery store

  2. When I was a girl, I would always buy all the minks I found at yard sales. I liked them better than stuffed animals. I think I need to go find them...

  4. I'd love to hear what happens at the grocery store:) I think some people just take it too serious. I wouldn't buy a today's fur but these are just a piece of history now. I own one fur trimmed coat from the 30s and a couple of fur trims. I also love your hair color. Very lovely dear Brittany.

  5. I agree, there are too few occasions to wear furs! My poor foxes have been neglected so far!

    The dress is darling! I love the color and it's perfect for the holiday!

  7. Your kids are too cute! And you look soooo glamorous! I guarantee you will be the best dressed and most fabulous mommy pushing a cart at the grocery store. I'm a stay at home mom, and sometimes I go a little glam even to ballet class, because there seriously are too few occasions for fur and glamour. Your hair looks great too!

  9. You look amazing - especially in those self-shots. And the last photo is one of my favourites^^ The fur matches the colour of the dress perfectly. Your son looks adorable and so eager to get a perfect shot with the remote^^ His sweater is just too cute^^

  12. You are a such a lovely lady, Brittany!

    I adore fur stoles, but I can't help but feel like a bug under a microscope when people stare at me. And it's funny because I have been a vegetarian and currently only eat fish and chicken because I am a pretty big animal lover (but I needed more sources of protein in my diet).

    Also, cutest selfie ever! LOL

  13. Gadzooks, darling gal, you look ravishingly beautiful and just as sophisticatedly elegant and mink fur is soft. Gorgeous ensemble - I love your darling little photographic assistant, too.
