New at Frequency Vintage and What I Learned about Vintage Fur/Faux

Standard

Gonna kick it off with this KILLER LEATHER TRENCH COAT!  If this super slick trench fit me, it would not be on the market.  I mean, there is no way to wear this and not be pretty sure you’re a spy. 
This is an amazing, flawless vintage piece.

$125 Frequency Vintage

And of course, gotta add a few more belts!  How better to mix up a look than with a fun, colorful pop full of vintage flare!

$7.00 Frequency Vintage

$7.00 Frequency Vintage

This belt fits right in with the Must have Monday: Bugging Out  post about the Critters Trend. 

 

 What I learned about fur

 $75 Frequency Vintage

I love this coat.  Just like the leather one at the top, if it was my size, you wouldn’t be seeing it here.  It is so soft, love the big collar, and the lining is beautiful.  I think dressing up a pair of jeans with this would be a great modern twist on a classic look.

It looks and feels real, the lining is luxurious, but!….the label tells it all.  It’s not marked Faux Fur, in fact it says clean by Fur Coat methods.  The give away is actually the label: Mincara.  In fact all Mincara, Intrique, Tissavel, Borgana, Glenoit and Grandella(commonly seen vintage labels) coats are faux, whether denoted on the label or not.  Some vintage sellers don’t take the extra step to research, so the more you know, the better chance of getting a really great piece, faux or fur.

Real does not always mean better.  Seriously, the Mincara coat above is awesome.  Great vintage shape, feel, warmth, look, and beautifully lined.  I have seen real pieces that are just falling apart with a much higher price tag.  So if you are in the market for a fur, maybe faux is the way to go.

WAIT!  One more thing, something that has been driving me nuts.  First, I have to say that I am often wrong and make bad style choices and mistakes which is just part of taking fashion risks.  So you can choose to ignore me, obviously, but seriously ladies, leggings are not pants.  I thought the fad would fade, but I saw way too much booty this weekend to think it is true.  Big, small, short or tall, if you make the choice to wear leggings, make sure your top comes down below your cheeks (I know you think they aren’t see through but they are, I promise).  If you want to show it off, wear a tight skinny jean, or shorts with tights, anything but uncovered booty with leggings.

One more time, let’s say it together: leggings aren’t pants!
