What I Wore on Wednesday - November 26, 2014

by mary November 26, 2014

Today's Dorothea's Closet Vintage outfit is a super fun black & leopard/cheetah (faux) Neiman Marcus jacket!  (I actually have several leopard/cheetah jackets -- can't seem to resist them!)

Neiman Marcus was founded in 1907 as an luxury specialty department store.  In 1927, Neiman Marcus premiered the first weekly retail fashion show in the US.  According to William Schack, in 1936 Edna Woolman Chase (editor of Vogue, told the local press, "I dreamed all my life of the perfect store for women.  Then I saw Neiman Marcus, & my dream came true."  Neiman Marcus is also known for it's Christmas Catalog, which it began issuing in 1939, and which features unusual & extravagant gifts not sold in stores.

With the jacket, I wore 2 pieces of my jewelry -- the first is a necklace I made this summer that features a silver dragonfly & mookite (I think) gemstone pendant, as well as mookite, brown jasper & carnelian gemstones, & vintage silver chain & beads.

The second is a "Horsing Around" bracelet I made with Cracker Jack/gumball charms & picture jasper gemstones.
