white faux fur coat

Mongolian fur coat: Etsy (about 3 years ago).  This grey Warehouse coat is cool or try Ashely B (on sale), Nightwalker, Asos or Forever21. High waisted jeans: Express.  Belt (just seen): Vintage. Boots: Emma Cook for Topshop (still badass). Try the ‘Hackney’ lace ups.  Bag: Chanel. Hat: Mens H&M.   Lipstick: MAC ‘Lady Danger’

You know when you can’t decide on whether to sell something that you’ve had for a while?  That was the case with this coat.   It’s from Etsy and I would pull it out on days that I was serious about purging the wardrobe, cocking my head to one side thinking: ‘Should I?’   Then snow days like now hit and I’m thinking:  ‘Um no I bloody well shouldn’t!’

Check places like Etsy or Ebay for one or try Unreal Fur if you can’t deal with the hunt just order the biggest size available.

    Gorgeous look! Glad you didn’t sell the coat because it’s really beautiful and you look great in it too. The photos look like photos straight out of a fashion magazine.

      No I’ve decided that I won’t. I would really regret it.

    These photos are truly beautiful. Its quite a feat to take pictures with snow falling, its a real pain for focussing! Love the coat, a mongolian fur is forever on my ‘yes please’ list when I’m hunting around eBay and charity shops. If you ever do want to sell, I can give that baby a good home!

      Yes I know what you mean focus issues with snow. It does happen sometimes! Keep looking I’m sure you will find one!!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you! Actually it’s not a fanny pack but I did notice that it looks like one because you can’t see the bag straps that are buried inside the fur coat. I’m wearing a black belt over the coat and it does look like it’s part of the bag LOL!
