perfect timing

Dress: Thrift. Drawstring bag: Ebay (DIY studded). Faux fux coat: H&M. Fyres: Vintage. Fedora: Trash & Vaudeville, Rings: LF/W store. Necklace: Random jewellery shop
The snow really started yesterday right about the time of the dinner ressies I made at Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant at The London hotel. Typical. So might as well make the best of it and have a bit of a laugh when it started?
I wore a long black wool dress I bought a few weeks ago (thrifted), a cropped lace cardi over it (you can get it here) and my vintage Fryes bought yonks ago.
Every time I wear this faux fur coat I think of the assistant at H&M who said I shouldn’t get it because it’s too big. I’m so glad I kept it. The oversized feel was part of the attraction (that and paying $30). You’ve seen me in it before here.
ps. the food was delicious. The only complaint was the portions were very small :-/

    You look so fabulous in that coat!
    Lately I’ve been thinking about getting one of my own but I feel like wearing something like that takes balls, which I’m not sure I have…still thinking about it though ; )

    You look like you’re having fun, despite the ridiculous snow!

    I got hit with a pretty ridiculous blizzard yesterday (people were left stranded on the highways! ahh!) and I don’t think this snow is ever going to melt away…

    Great coat! I’m thinking of some fur accessories for myself!
