I bought this coat at the thrift store around October just in time to wear it during fall & winter. Plus, it still looks brand new. I also wore this coat for one of my fashion outfit which you can view here, http://joteielizabeth.blogspot.com/2012/11/all-leaves-are-brown.html. I'm not really a fan of fur so I decided to remove the fur out and add lace over it as the collar part. Now, it gives a more vintage and sophisticated look.
