A friend of my mum’s gave away many of her gorgeous clothes a few years back when she moved to Italy. I scored a beautiful handmade pair of Ferragamo heels, some key work pieces from Max Mara and I also chose this camel vintage jacket. No one (including myself) could understand my fascination with this jacket but I absolutely love it. It reminds me of the jacket Serena wore in the pilot of Gossip Girl when she arrived at Grand Central.

I will admit I am not a fan of vintage clothing but I do like pieces that speak to me and that have a story. I guess I need to know who wore the item before me and the idea of some faceless individual creating memories in a piece only later to discard it or have to sell it makes me worry about the energy of the piece. Perhaps I think about things to much and too intensely.

  2. I’m the exact opposite – I love vintage pieces and the idea of the people who once owned them, especially if the item is quite flamboyant 🙂 I do love the pieces handed down by my mom most though. So jelly of the Max Mara and Ferragamo!

  3. LOVE your jacket!

  4. Absolutely in love with your jacket 😀

  5. Love it! I’m similar you – I’m not big on “random” vintage clothing but I have numerous items in my wardrobe that were my mom’s, aunt’s, grandmother’s (even my grandfather’s!) and love that the piece can live on!

  6. Thank you Candice x

  7. That’s so interesting. My mum steals more pieces from me than I do from her haha. Yes I’ll always treasure the Ferragamo heels. The workmanship is incredible.

  8. Very true! I am also big on passing down special pieces. Very rare in the current constant consumption era we live in.

  9. Thanks Alice xx

  10. Thanks for stopping by Lynne x
