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. Double-faced satin is so luxurious and really the only kind of ribbon worthy of a mink. The sky is the limit on colors and the bow can be changed with every outfit!
