Metallic Threads

Yesterday I enjoyed a nice Sunday evening running around the city with my dad. I wore a vintage jacket from Shareen's that was once a coat, but I had it altered because there was a huge stain at the bottom. I think I love it better as a cropped jacket anyway..
Worn with Stylemint tee, Current Ellliott jeans, vintage sterling silver rings, and Miu Miu loafer pumps.

I never thought to alter some of the coats I see at thrift/vintage stores to cropped jackets. Thanks for the tip!

Anywho, it's really cute. The whole metallic stripes does work more for a cropped jacket.

I'm so jealous of everything on this blog - you have the most impeccable style and you are incredibly beautiful too. This outfit is perfection - especially the jeans, which are the perfect fit (especially with the turnups) and the jacket - I love reworking a vintage piece into something new and different, then it is truly one of a kind. Your blog is probably the one I visit most - it never fails to impress.

It's so awesome that you got to repurpose such a lovely jacket by having it turned into a cropped one. I can totally see the appeal to it and it looks fabulous. I would've never known it was formerly a long one. Your accessories are fantastic as always!

as usual, you look stunning. very clever idea with the jacket. I'm always so scared of vintage shopping and buying something useless. that has been my trend. minus belts.. i always find the greatest belts!
