Animal Instinct

Today is back to posting photos of myself in outfits. It was a nice break to blog about New York Fashion Week for the past few postings. Animal prints and fur/faux fur are making a comeback this season. Most of the items in this shoot were bought a while ago, except for the snakeskin bangle which I got at a sample sale. It really goes to show that if you buy something and keep it for a while, it'll come back in style! Anyhow, I love the fur vest and jacket too much to part with them.

New York City hosted the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show this weekend. I went on Friday to check out the selection: I was in Vintage Heaven! There were anything and everything, vintage gold chains, vintage Chanel bags and accessories, cocktail name it, they have it. There were also a lot of vintage fur coats, which are right on trend for this season. The selection was wide but a bit pricey. I bought a gorgeous black cocktail dress in the end. I think I still prefer my Shareen Vintage: great pieces and most under $100.
