If my posts are slow...
Its because I've been busy working with my mom on dissecting this rack of vintage & secondhand furs...most of them are faux. My mom has been collecting these since the beginning of the year and has curated quite the collection...
I can't wait to show all of her finds! As you can see, I've got a lot to cover...expect posts with all of these coats soon!

First off is a personal favorite..

Vintage faux fur jacket-extremely boxy and very warm.
Worn with Joie skinny satin pants and Ann Demeulemeester triple lace up burgundy boots.
Oh hey...notice anything different?

I went red today!
I really like it...it's an exciting change for me, I've never really been anything but dirty blonde before.

Remember this cute jungle green faux-fur coat I posted a few months back?

These faux fur coats by Sasson were what kicked off my mom's obsession with faux-fur.
At the moment she has five of these coats in her possession, and even managed to round up a Sasson baseball tee to go with them.

The green is still my favorite. Worn here with vintage velvet harem pants by Kenzo, and suede tri-tone Pradas.

Plain black doesn't have quite the 'WTF' factor as the green one, but I still love it. Worn with Kill City tie-dye jeans and Balenciaga ankle boots.

More to come soon!

very lovely! as always one of my favorite fashion blogs. i've been scouring my home town for cheap vintage furs, faux or otherwise, and this is very inspiring because you wear it well. lots of people are afraid to wear fur... most of our local shops' furs are away for the summer but when they're back out, this is definitely what i'm drawing from! thanks. :)))

Photo of cindywan

good to hear that most of your fur collection is faux fur and not real.
love it everytime u do the crimped hair!

Photo of Andrew J

May be playing it safe here, but my favorite is the black. I'm also looking forward to seeing the patchwork looking jacket in various shades of brown on.

When I saw your tweet today I was a little afraid to see you as a red, but I have to say it's much more subtle than I was fearing. I dig :).

Photo of lisa from london

love these so much. went to beyond retro (a vintage store in london) yesterday and saw a bunch of these faux fur. they are so gorgeous. i think rachel zoe wears them well. and i love how you have paired the brown with simply trousers and boots leaving the fur to do the talkin!.

I love the ankle boots at the last picture, acutually, at the last picture I loved everything xD

Photo of nicole

i have to say, you've been saying in alot of posts im going to start posting heaps and then the next one you post you say "sorry for the slowing down in updates." confused?

Photo of Lesley

I love it! Can't wait to see more pics with the coats!!! It's hard to think about coats right now when it is 100 degrees out...

This is so inspiring though...and right on time! My mom has a vintage coat with fur trim from the 60's that she is giving to me. I'm trying to figure out what to wear with it to make it look more modern.

BTW, where did you find your black satin skinny pants???

Photo of Cecilia

Gah! I´m jeallous. I´ve been trying to find the perfect faux fur coat and you have a whole rack of them! You look gorgeous as ever. Also, I really liked the article about you and your mom that she posted on her blog.

I learned about you while reading style.com's list of "up and coming style mavens" that may be in the front rows this fashion week. Got a link to your blog and I think its very interesting. You're extremely eloquent and I love your style. I wish you all the best this school year!

I looooove your hair color! I like it a lot. It's something different. :)

Photo of Laura

I would love to sleep on top of all of those coats, they look soo cosy.
Also loving the new hair colour.

I really love faux fur coats, they way you have styled these is fantastic, great work with the colours and textures. One colour combo I would usually avoid is green and brown but you work it really well with the prada, perhaps it is the flash of lilac breaking it up. Is that a mongolian I spy loving sheepskin at the moment. I would also love a pair of tall Ann D's here collection this season is quite a minimalist look but Ive always loved the laces!
That colour hair is absolutely divine, really suits you and a lovely shade for the autumn.

You hair looks great. Awesome color. I also love that first coat. My mom, sister, and I discovered a lot of vintage furs at my grandmother's house, so we have had fun with them too :)
