    ^Haha, yes, I am thinking I will just have to get a blanket. Capes tend to be too thin... Now I just need to find the correct one...

    CastaƱer makes espadrilles for houses like Chanel, Dior etc. They are an institution. There is another Spanish famous shop: La Manual Alpargatera. Prices are much more reasonable but I don't think you can purchase them online.

    I've been craving this sweater for a while:
    http://www.nastygal.com/clothes-sweaters/nasty-gal-wild-for-the-night-crop-sweater
    Or maybe it's the bra shape on sweaters and tops that I like. I went to the acne showroom and they had the ss pieces, some dresses and tops with that shape too and I was pretty obsessed with them as I left. ^_^'
    If I'm honest they had these pieces made of an amazing velvet o_O I want that too ^_^

    You can make a ribbon tie like that yourself. I have several vintage fur collars. It would be very easy to sew a silk ribbon onto it. I might actually do that. Thanks for the tip, Lucy92! :D

    ^ Etsy is a great source for vintage ribbon, better quality than what I can find in stores (though some shops also have bolts of vintage ribbon).


    This is not news, but I am craving Alber Elbaz's Lanvin ;)

    thanks babe...:flower:

    that one is super adorable and i have considered that sort of thing but what i really want is something actually attached to the coat collar...
    something i can flip up on my neck to actually keep me warm and cozy...

    plus-mongolian lamb and fox are my furs of choice and they don't really make good collars like that...too fluffy...

    :bunny:...^_^...

    maybe it's about attaching it to a sweater and layering that under the coat...
    hmmmm...
    it's good to consider all the options~!

    another thing i am really feeling right now is BOUCLE...
    i love the richness of the texture....

    *eizhowa...
    if you do it, please let us know how it turns out! i would love to see!
    :heart:

    Lightness. Whites, pale grey, pale blue and green.
    If only my wardrobe could automatically turn a few shades lighter.. :magic:

    I said lighter, not with extra holes. That's a whole different kind of lightness. :ninja:

    ^ I do like a winter white/pastel fix sometimes ... but the cold weather is so new here, I haven't had a chance to get tired of anything yet. Today it's gotten into the 70s, but there's been a chill wind blowing ...


    Maybe you could find some flannel pants in a light color, like light grey or ivory ... would you wear something like that? I'm picturing something with darker leather or bone buttons ...


    Or a cashmere or wool sweater in a complex blue-green would be really nice.

    It's not that I'm tired of my wardrobe, I'm pretty content actually. But I gravitate to the ligher items more at the moment.

    I think I actually have a ton of those fur collars you'd be looking for. They have a lining, with button holes all the way accross, so you'd just need to sew the correct size button on your coat collar.

    that does sound like what i'm thinking...
    except i was thinking the other way round...

    i don't want a bunch of buttons on my coat collar...
    but i was thinking i could sew buttons on the fur collar and then maybe do some sort of loop (maybe elastic?) on the collar to hold it in place...
    or maybe i have to make some sort of tab at the corners of the fur...

    why do you have a ton of them?
    and why don't you use them?~~?
    what kind of fur?
    :unsure:...
