Fabulous Faux Fur Find

Jacket- Thrifted
Scarf- TJ Maxx
Purse & Gloves- Winners
Pants- Kohls

Thank you so much everyone who commented on yesterdays post.  It was great to hear every ones thoughts on my winter dressing dilemma!

A few weeks ago while I was visiting my parents in Southern BC, my Sister In-Law and I went to the local thrift store and scored ourselves some fantastic finds.  I found this faux fur jacket for $4!  Five minutes later I found this jacket for $25 (more on that one at a later date though). 
As I was inspecting this jacket I noticed that there were no tags, or signs of them ever existing...I also noticed that there was a lot of hand stitching and signs that told me the jacket was hand made.  The buttons were interesting as well....very old looking.  I strongly believe that this jacket was handmade in the 60's which was indicated by the buttons and the shape and style of the jacket.  Isn't it great how vintage styles can look completely current?  Initially I assumed that this jacket was a recent store brand product.  I'm glad I was wrong though.
