the ghost of my mother's white coat



Top-Forever 21
Ox Blood Pants- H&M
Boots- Night Market
Coat-Vintage







I have a serious case of wearing whatever I find...and I mean it can be my grandfather's sweater, my sister's dress, my dad's shirt and sometimes it works out pretty nice like in this case, I'm wearing my mother's coat.
I LOVE this coat, its so elegant and classy and my mom has managed to keep it pristinely white for 30 years! I remember always seeing it at the back of the closet growing up, and the admiration was always there for it, so I am super excited that I can now actually wear it and incorporate it in to my closet.
Do you ever wear whatever you find?

  33. Oh, yes, I love to wear whatever I find, especially if it's from my mom's closet and it's vintage! I remember that when I was growing up, I used to borrow sweaters from my mom's because for me they were so unique, and I was so proud of wearing something that nobody else had! This coat is really a beauty, I can clearly see why you were so in love with it, and how amazing you must feel now that you can also wear it! It's definitely a timeless piece!
