This no name, vintage, thrifted coat ($5.99) was found last year at Goodwill.  I really like the material although it looks like some type of animal fur with its nubby wool-like material. It is a great layering piece but not real fur.

My vintage faux fur boots are called Kickeroos as indicated on the pink stitched label on the inside.  I found them at Goodwill for less than $5.00,  2 years ago.

Here is a look at the inside of the vintage coat which is fully lined.  The barn cat at the barn party Saturday night could not get enough of this coat...he must have thought it was his/her mama.  Vintage scarf, less than a buck and Calvin Klein wool skirt $3.99.

Have a great Wednesday darlings, I am working tonight.  It's movie night with the Seniors...movie and a snack anyone?  How hard did I laugh when one of the Seniors said "I feel like a hog" after she ate cake and ice cream.  I went into that deep, silent laughter because she usually does not talk much and to hear her blurt that out made me die laughing.... the stories I could tell.

'I feel like a hog' - I'm impressed you kept it together! Did you see my recent senior story? OK, I am loving your boots paired with the richly textured tights. They add a very glamorous touch to your outfit.

Love how autumny these photos are! Yeah dawn the scarf is huge! Kind of like a scarf/shawl because I think it's a bit bigger than a pashmina size scarf

Vintage coats are the awesomest (I know that isn't a word but I needed to use it :)) ... what a killer find! You look amazing, Dawn ... right down to those gorgeous tights and booties!
