(Outfit details: 1960s faux fur coat; 1950s children's cap and muff set; 1950s dress; Steston boots)
For those that don't know, my hometown is a small village in Vermont (population 700, soooo cosmopolitan) and go to school in a large town in Vermont. The point is, it is cold, cold, cold, wherever I am, and very snowy too. So although March may be around the corner, Spring's a long way off; we are being hit by [yet another] major blizzard as I write this, actually.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is that my purchase of this 1950s rabbit-fur, cat-faced cap-and-muff set was totally justifiable.
It was only $10.00 for the pair, so I am not ashamed. And yes, I did wear them both together while walking around campus today. I will probably do the same tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, until I have firmly established myself as my school's token crazy-cat-lady-in-training. I was thinking [hoping] the cowboy boots might negate the ridiculousness of my furry friends; or perhaps they make me look even more insane? Oh well; I gave up trying to look normal years and years ago ;)
