you know me…i wouldn’t go off "glamping" in the woods for no other reason than just to relax & get away from it all, right? you’re correct! actually, MDH & i attended a wedding that was the epitome of romantic country nuptials :) it was very rustic & down to earth with the ceremony in a moss-lined glade, yet elegant with a reception in a barn decorated with chinese lanterns & white lights :)
so, being out in the woods was an appropriate occasion to wear my wild mink stole that i rarely bring out. i bought it at a church rummage sale for $40. when i brought it to be cleaned, the girl at the local fur shop asked if i knew what it was. when i said mink, she corrected me with “wild mink” which she recognized by the striped fur vs. farmed mink. wow, lucky me to find such a rare piece!
**note: i think i’ve stated my opinions on fur before, but i share the sentiments of most bloggers i know. while i don’t seek out new fur clothing at all, when i see vintage items while thrifting, i still appreciate them for the quality pieces of fashion that they are. sometimes i buy them, sometimes i don’t, but the ones i do become cherished special occasion items that i wear & store with care. maybe i can pass them on to my nieces one day if they so choose :) **
so much for that tangent…whew! in any case, we had a great time at this wedding far-flung into the forest ^_^ i’ll post pics from it soon :)
