The loveliest, ugliest things


Coat: Brown Elephant
Shirt: Thrifted
Jeggings: NY & Co.
Boots: Ebay
Headband: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: H&M
Sunglasses: Buffalo Exchange

This has been the mildest winter I've experienced in the 3 years I've lived in the midwest. In fact, it's been weeks since I've worn my big puffy down coat, and it's already the end of February. More often than not, I'm wearing this little guy which I bought at Brown Elephant sometime last year for $5. It's by Betty Rose and I'm assuming from the 70's. It fits me like a glove and it's basically perfection... except for the fact that it now has a tear at the seam on one of the front pockets, missing a D-ring on one of the cuffs, and yesterday one of the buttons popped off! It's older than I am and I obviously don't take care of my things. Can someone help me get my life together?
