A few weeks ago, I mentioned in a post that fur was a huge trend on the runways for Fall/Winter 2011 at NY Fashion Week. My mom told me that her sister inherited a mink stole from my Great Aunt that would have been perfect for my post. So, when I attended my Grandmother's 94th birthday party I asked my Aunt show it to me. My dad had his camera, so although the rest of my outfit was not fur-worthy, we took some pictures.
Not only did my Great Aunt wear this in the 60's, but my Aunt Cindy wore it to President Carter's Inaugural Ball. (Yes, my family is from the South.) After my photos, she told me that I should take it home, because I will probably have more opportunity to wear it than she will. How sweet! Now, I just need another black tie event...
I have one just like that that I inherited from my grandmother. I have yet to find a place to wear it.
