I suppose it is not a question of need but desire. For that price it would be crazy not to have bought it. If in immaculate condition then this would be valued anywhere between $100 - $500 I believe. So, in the haystack you found the needle :-)
I so agree... We defo do not need fur... there are other warm coats out there! LOL But I defo crave and desire it! And at those prices it would have been criminal not to have snapped it up!
I think fur accessories are an excellent idea, a little fur goes a long way. BTW, I love you fur lined Mulberry gloves. I have coats too but accessories are so much more sensible.
My favourite fur accessories are a sable stole from Hockley, London and some fur lined boots by Hermes but I also some vintage sable stoles too that are better quality but are irredeemably old-fashioned and consequently less versatile but I love them too. Mink collars and cuffs are great for changing a plain or tweed jacket/coat and fox and Mongolian lamb collars glam up any outfit, I have a HUGE scarlet Mongolian lamb collar that I bought at a Versace sale - maybe a bit too glam for the day but gorgeous.
