Fee Fi Faux Fur

All thrift.
I have owned two fur jackets for quite some time now — they both are real, but vintage, so I think it is acceptable. Well kind of, so I used to only find myself wearing them to costume events dressed up as a flapper or a girl from the 70s or New Years Eve type things. But now, all of a sudden I have embarked on my first winter peppered with Siberian winds, in a place where it is really okay to wear fur — because you know, it makes life a lot warmer. So the other night I wore my fur out and I got no weird stares or red paint thrown on me, in fact I almost crashed into a girl in the subway wearing pretty much the exact outfit as me. I wonder if she was wearing a velvet dress with sheer sleeves and a bustier top underneath too? Anyway, I think I am going to wear this guy more often, am I terrible?

Another thing I always wanted, but definitely didn't have the guts to wear, was one of those Russian-esque fur hats. NYC was cold, but I still always stuck with a black or tan knit beanie, even when some brave hipster girls started wearing them. I secretly wished I could do it, but my big head would never fit into one of those vintage numbers. But the other day I purchased this furry guy, who is definitely faux, but not in that really fake looking way. It's big enough for me and keeps me oh so warm, and I like that it doesn't actually look like a fur pill box hat.
Oh what is that crazy over-sized leopard print sweater thing I am wearing, you ask? Well, it is a little cardi I just got at H&M. It looks like leopard is really in my closet to stay. Let me give you a closer look....
H&M sweater, Aldo boots, the rest thrift.
Oh and while we are on the topic of funny headwear, this is my new turban from ASOS that I have been alternating with the fur.
