I've pulled out of my closest a dear and treasured flea market find from many years ago. I bought this at a vintage warehouse in Melbourne and pull it out every chance I get when winter descends. Whilst it's quite beady and certainly not to everyone's taste, I tone it down by wearing a black singlet or t-shirt underneath with black pants.
I've never been very good at explaining material or the style of clothes - in fact I'm absolutely hopeless. The best I can give you is that I think this is angora, lined with silk with a delicate beaded pattern. Those far more eloquent than I, feel free to embellish on this mediocre description! After all, its so luxurious to wear and I've by no means given it justice!
