I'm apologizing in advance…

Wool and Chinchilla Suit, Jill Sander boots

I am apologizing in advance for the fur, I know it's not PC, but what can I say?  It's in the cannon of clothes, and for better or worse, it is beautiful, in a very Gorky Park way…I love when I have images of my mom wearing the outfit as well, that does not happen very often, so it feels very special.  I would like to note that while wearing this, I was literally unable to breathe for fear of busting the buttons, which I think I did anyway. (bust buttons, not breathe)!  This is one of those items that I think, what am I going to do with this?  I can't wear it on a daily basis, or actually ever, it's so small.  This brings up something that I have been thinking about a lot lately, how do I care for all of this? Do I save them all for the girls?  Can I?  There is a fragility to a lot of these clothes, some feel like they might just fall apart in my hands sometimes.  The metaphor is not lost on me. There has to be a certain amount of holding on in life, and a certain amount of letting go.  It is a fine line, and a delicate balance.  Heres to finding the center.
