Rockstar Yeti

I've got fur on my mind.  More specifically, this gorgeous white lamb fur coat.  Nevermind that Orange County is so warm right now that I'm wearing shorts as I write this post.  But in my head, I can see myself arriving at some cool party like a rock star in this exquisite white fur coat (and as a mom, wearing anything white without getting a stain on it is as likely as spotting a real Yeti in the back woods of Balboa Bay). The LA girl in me still persists in this dream, wanting this little bit of furry goodness, like a petulant child about to throw a temper tantrum without another piece of birthday cake.  So off I go on a little shopping adventure (aren't they the best kind??) to find this elusive creature.

 I tried on this white mink and organza ruffle capelet from Oscar de la Renta in South Coast Plaza.  Very pretty and detailed, but maybe a bit too girly for me.  I felt like I should be in an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras with my own mini-sash and crown.

oops! Got distracted by this gorgeous
Oscar de la Renta diamond ring.
Vintage white fox coat, armani shirt, uniq pants, lanvin shoes,
henri bendel necklace, oliver peoples sunglasses

Spotted this 1960's vintage white fox coat while browsing one of the many vintage shops of Old Towne Orange.  This particular coat was found at Elsewhere Vintage, but I've also had a lot of luck at Villains Vintage and the Orange Circle Antique Mall.   This reminds me of an old school rockstar, or more specifically, Ginger from Casino.  Do you think this looks like a cross between a Yeti and a 60's Vegas mob boss's wife?  Both the LA and OC girl in me are happy!  Now if only the weather would cooperate...
