Wrapped in a Bow

Ok, so real furs aren't exactly in vogue right now, but I wouldn't trade this one for anything. This was my grandmother's little white mink stole and she passed it down to me, so I treasure it. She was ultra-fashionable and I remember her wearing this on many occasions. Wouldn't she love knowing that I wore it to a black-tie affair on Valentine's Day!

The stole certainly doesn't need any embellishments to be fabulous but this extra touch gives it a wow factor.

I looped a long piece of double-faced satin turquoise ribbon around the button closure and tied it in a gigantic bow. The sky is the limit on colors and the bow can be changed with every outfit!

Fur coats and stoles can be found at flea markets and on ebay, in case your grandmother left hers to cousin Bertha instead.
