especially fur you



Last Saturday night posed a tricky conundrum! It was chilly, to say the least, but I was due to grace the town with my presence and celebrate festive tidings with my hockey team. Now I am not one of those girls that can flit out the door wearing next to nothing in sub-zero conditions. I see them scantily gallivanting around and a maternal air overwhelms me and I just want to wrap them up in a big coat and mittens and ply them with horlicks.
I therefore required some warmth up top, to conceal the goosebumps in between the bar-hopping. I unearthed this (faux) fur coat which I purchased circa 2004 from Miss Selfridge I do believe...
Asides from being rather chuffed it still fitted my no longer 18 year old frame, I was just thankful to have something snug to wrap up in, before embarking out into the chill. All my other coats and jackets were just exasperating me, either too formal, too scruffy or their total inadequacy to keep me warm.


I do love fur coats, and cannot help but give them a little stroke whenever I walk past them in a shop...just me??
I now have my eyes on this little number please (if it ever comes back in stock)


The other elements of my outfit:
top: H&M - skirt: H&M - Jewellery: Accessorize
Hair thanks to the O and a little side pinning.


Do you find wintertime outerwear a bit of a chore?
Are you a fan of the faux fur?

So cute! I want a really big fake fur one. Just debating whether it would look good or a bit too 'pimp' haha!

I agree that winter outerwear is a bit of a chore, especially when one wants to show off his/her outfit! Haha. You pull it off very well though. =]

You're looking gorgeous as usual!

Very cute indeed :) Hope you had a good night?
The skirt is so pretty- I'm glad you wore it with tights though. As I agree with you, I need to wrap up as warm as I can in these frosty evenings.
I do find coats and outwear a pain though, they just seem to ruin the outfit most of the time.
This is one of the first winters I am actually enjoying dressing for it though, love my socks & tights and I need to make my fur coat come out of hiding as she has only been worn once.
You & your hair look as beauitful as ever

Aimee said...

Oh, winter outerwear is most DEFINITELY a chore! It's so expensive and you have one really pretty coat, but of course it never matches with your entire wardrobe! Hmph. Next winter I vow to buy myself coats for every kind of outfit! Anyways, great skirt!

Marilou said...

The skirt is simply looking amaaaazing :) I need it !
And with the faux fur touch, it gives the whole outfit a je ne sais quoi haha
Lovely as always
I always had an ingrained love for faux fur but I never wore one actually. Need to, it's such a great look for winter without going boring warm coats :)
