On the Fringe of Society




I went to the Flea Market today. It was absolutely insanity, I got so many amazing pieces, this furry denim jacket being one of them. I originally had on a white blazer but quickly shed that in favor of donning this precious vintage coat. I swear it reminds me of a collection I cant put my finger on.

I finally got my hands on the perfect turquoise ring. Its absolutely beautiful. I think I might be in love.

Wearing a vintage fringe coat, levis cutoffs, AA uneck leotard, and a vintage Eric Javits hat.

Woah that jacket is crazy. But so freakin cool.
Wish I could find stuff like that but we don't really have markets where i live..

I thought I saw you there-- should have said hello! I walked by with my boyfriend and dog... brown wavy hair, white dress, and pumpkin corduroy vest with brown boots. But I'm sure with the hundreds of people there today you wouldn't remember. Glad to hear you found good stuff. I did well, but my boyfriend (for once!) did better. Maybe my shopping addiction is wearing off on him..

What an awesome jacket, I believe I've never seen a combination of furry and denim this way.
You're really lucky you found that ^^

Whaaaaaaaaat that jacket is insane. "Furry denim jacket" are words I've never heard in the same sentence before. Awesome. Love the ring too, it reminds me of rings my mom had that I played dress-up with as a kid.

She comes from a nowhere town she likes said...

Wow, you can actually do denim on denim, most people failure miseably, but you can really pull it off!

these unitards are such perfect basics, but i never fit into them. making clothes for adults of average height is overrated, i tell you.

FashionXJunkie said...

Please don't take this the wrong way, but that jacket is so gloriously ugly. I mean that in a good way. I love ugly things that just become cute when you do them right!

Um, I'm pretty in love with that ring. I have such a weakness for turquoise. Oh and I use a Rebel XS, but I need to get a good macro lens for it. Something to budget for I suppose..

Claudia said...

wow cool jacket! My friends mom used to be a designer and her stuff looked a lot like that it was called muslin mink

Anonymous said...

not exactly sure why... but it reminds me a tiny itty bit of rodarte... with all the shreds and stuff... maybe?

jamie clare said...

dunno if i'd sport the jacket, but it's certainly unique. i would snap up that turquiose ring in a heartbeat though - southwestern-inspired jewelry feels so right right now.
