The photos do not do justice to the awesome pieces that reside in this outfit. I was rushed, the light was too bright from the glare of an overcast sky, and black does not photograph well.
What you are missing are is the mother lode of textures- the needle-like hairs of the fur, the curls of silk ribbon on the coat, and the black clouds of cuddliness that made up my new-to-me thrifted mohair sweater. Feeling quite jaunty, I slipped on a neglected pair of bright white brogues. I need to wear them more often.
Something I'll be wearing more often are these freshly thrifted black round sunglasses. If a pair of sunglasses is big and round, I'll want to wear them. I call it the Apfel effect. I want to look like this bold goddess. So I buy and wear, round lensed sunglasses. I look so serious yet off-beat. I'm so drawn to raggedly eclectic and eccentric looks that are a bit long in the tooth. A post-modern old fashioned. A black winter spinster. Are you seeing it?
