Each year, Ren schedules her annual doctor's appointments around her birthday. In her glass half-empty state of mind, another trip around the sun means another opportunity for something to be wrong with her. The pessimist schedules it all- yearly OB/GYN visit with Dr. Grimm (Yep, Doctor GRIMM. She's actually quite wonderful to the contrary), annual physical, full body skin check with the dermatologist, and to top it off, her six month teeth cleaning. This year, Ren somehow managed to plan all of her visits in one day, which is a double edged sword with lots of poking, prodding, and breast examining (Um, hi. OUCH!). Saving the worst for the end of the day, the almost birthday gal hurries off to her three o'clock dentist appointment in quite possibly the cutest jacket that the staff at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry has ever seen.
A rare Donnybrook piece, the plush, oversized black coat presents:
✶Cocoon silhouette complete with single front button closure, rolled cuffs, hidden front pockets, and rollover collar lapel
✶Purple, Orange, Grey, Blue, and Yellow doodled heart pattern on acrylic faux fur
✶Fully lined. 100% Poly
Arriving early to her cleaning for quite possibly the first time in her life, Ren settles in and treats herself to a complementary water, asking the only other person in the lobby if they'd care for a beverage as well. The petite, seasoned woman waiting quietly replied, "Oh! Thank you, dear, but, no. I just had my first pumpkin coffee". Instantly taken to the endearing gal, Ren kept the conversation going. "Ohhhhh! Fancy! Did you enjoy it"? "Oh, dear! It was delicious"! The two continued chatting as if they were old friends and in a very short amount of time, Ren learned that the sweet, old lady lived in a retirement community nearby, whereas her sister (who was getting her teeth cleaned) lived in an assisted living facility. She was made aware of how active the elderly woman was and how she was the only one in her workout class that could complete thirty sit-to-stands, demonstrating the exercise for Ren in the vacant lobby. Getting deeper into the conversation, the mature gal explained how her husband passed away (one day, he told her how he didn’t feel good and they found out he had brain cancer, lung cancer, and colon cancer. Passing away three months later). As if that wasn't enough to stir up Ren's emotions, the chatterbox dropped a bomb on Ren as they were wrapping up their time together. “I was a nun for 30 years before I met my husband”. Record screech. “WHAT?!You can’t leave now. I need to hear that story”, Ren expressed, mildly freaking out. The sweet grandma-esque storyteller got up from her chair and walked over to where Ren was sitting and gave an abbreviated version, while her sister checked out. “I was burnt out with the church. The Vatican had given me permission to withdraw, but I had to complete one last project. I had to take a group of mentally disabled women to the ballpark on the bus, but I didn't want to go alone. I needed supervision and help. When I arrived at the ballpark, my priest was there with someone to help me and it was love at first sight. I knew it right away”. Smiling ear to ear, the woman and Ren held hands for a moment before parting ways, never having exchanged names. "God bless you, dear", walking away to go assist her sister out of the office. Not really sure what just happened, Ren began to choke up. Perhaps, it made her miss her grandparents. Perhaps, it momentarily restored her faith in humanity. Or, made her realize the experiences missed from playing on her phone. Either way, Ren found comfort in knowing that somewhere out there, there was a former nun in her corner.

✩Shopping is kind of like Tinder. You have to look over all of the photos, details, measurements, and terrible music tastes, before you make THE COMMITMENT. All sales are final.
✩Sequin Whore vintage items are previously worn and loved with a story to tell. The pieces are hand chosen with attention to condition, quality, hand, construction, and fit. Before the article is given a stamp of approval for saleability, it is carefully looked over for flaws and imperfections. Any inadequacies are reflected in the condition portion of the lisiting description. However, despite the best efforts and most thorough eye, it is possible that a slight blemish may have been overlooked. Refunds will only be explored if a piece has been widely misrepresented. (Whoosh, what a mouthful that was).
✩If a refund is deemed appropriate for vintage purchases, the buyer is responsible for return shipping. Returned merchandise is expected to be postmarked within 2 days of it's arrival date and in the condition it was in when sold. If additional damage has been done to the item upon return, buyer will be responsible for cost of loss in value. In such case, the buyer will be contacted before any proceedings take place. Monetary refunds may take up on 7 business days depending on bank processing.
