Remember the post I published some time ago entitled "a fur vest with a silk shirt"? 
After having no luck finding a fur vest that I liked,  I decided to take the mink coat I got from my grandparents as a wedding gift that I had never worn and make myself a vest.  The tailor who cut out the sleeves repeatedly tried to convince me not to do such a thing. 

What's the point on having a beautiful coat if you never get to wear it?

Love my vest.
