Foxes are everywhere this Fall. It’s a trend so cute I had to dedicate a whole week to sharing it! Yesterday, I shared the Fox Clutch by Kate Spade (If you missed it, you can CHECK IT OUT HERE). Today, I am sharing the Fox Flats that are also by Kate Spade. While I would never wear these two accessories together, how could I resist buying them both? Answer: I couldn’t.
Todays OOTD features pops of bright, blood orange in my Vintage Wool Coat, Jewelry, as well as my Fox Flats. Even my funky feather hat has a few pops of the bright color. I have actually featured this Blood Orange Wool Jacket before on GingerSnaps. I included some pictures following todays OOTD; you can check out the full details of this outfit HERE.
I paired all of these orange accessories with a Baroque Printed Dress in Gold and Black from the 1960’s. My favorite thing about this dress is the how the rich color of the pattern hasn’t faded. This is due to the garment being made from Dacron Polyester. Polyester was first introduced to the American Public in 1951, and by the 1960’s was at the height of its popularity with the infamous “Double-Knit Polyester”. It was initially introduced as a miracle fabric that was inexpensive, durable, and never faded or wrinkled. Commercials boasted that a Polyester garment could be worn for “68 days straight without showing any wear!” Over the years the textile underwent many modifications to make it more comfortable and breathable. For instance, Dacron Polyester, a brand name of Polyester, is much softer and more luxe than regular Polyester.
