While Doris Day's "professional virgin" characters never really appealed to me, and this movie is a particularly execrable entry in the "sex-and-the-single-girl-will-she-or-won't-she-or-will-someone-think-she-did" titillation film genre (even Cary Grant can't redeem it for me), I couldn't resist employing it to introduce my latest indulgence. Because baby, I sure did.
I hope you all have been checking in over at Couture Allure Vintage this month. They've been offering one item each day at 50% off the ticketed price. Which is how I came to own this gorgeous 60's vintage mink jacket for $112.50.
When I was in high school, I had a rabbit fur jacket with a hood. I did feel bad for those bunnies, but every time I wore that jacket in freezing weather and was so warm and toasty, well... I currently would never consider buying a new fur, but before you threaten to turn me in to PETA, remember that these particular minks have been dead for some 40 years now. And see how fabulous it looks on!
I'm planning to pack this one for Colorado to wear in the evenings. I'm pretty certain it's safe to wear there without someone throwing blood on me. As far as anyone in LA is concerned, it's faux. ;-)
