In My Closet: Cozy Winter Clothes

I love clothes that are super soft, especially in cold weather. While I won't buy new fur, you'll find me snapping up jackets and accessories from the 1950s and 1960s that sport fur.
Vintage Fur for a SF Winter
Alas, while my Modern Deb jacket is warm enough for San Francisco winters, it's not for Salt Lake City. So, it'll be staying home in my closet while my Ultrawarm Jacket from L.L. Bean comes out of storage (an item I was so incredibly happy to find earlier in the week that it was what I was thankful for that day (photo on Flickr)). My super comfortable BF Goodrich boots (purchased by the original owner in 1963 for $19.00) and gloves will be among the things I pack. Other cold weather necessities that I haven't used since I lived in East Lansing, MI, like ear warmers and Hand Warmers (those hot packs that you tuck inside your gloves or pockets), will also be joining me at Alt.
Would you wear vintage fur?
Or is it faux fur only for you?
Ciao Bella!
