Through the distant and cold depths of space

Fur coat - Mum's || Crop top - Zara || Boucle/leather combination skirt - Zara

Lord of the bloody cold - Return of the Fur!! It's freezing outside so I've cracked out the fur coat. I'll be honest and say I don't actually know which animal I'm wearing but I can assure you, this coat has been around in our house for many, many years, so no, I've not been slaughtering poor animals. I know that some people have more piece of mind over vintage fur pieces, because the poor things are long gone and it would be a waste, or something. Truthfully, I'm not against wearing fur whether it's vintage or not (I mean, we all wear leather) - only any cruel, inhumane ways of obtaining it.

I must say, I feel like one of the kids in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in this, as well as simultaneously feeling like a sack of potatoes. The lining is so thick that there's not much give or flexibility against my body shape. Basically, I'm not the wearing the coat; the coat is wearing me >_>. But doesn't it wear me so well? HEHE. I'm also loving this combination skirt which gives the perfect amount of ladylike (the boucle) and edginess (the leather) to an outfit.

I'm going back to London tonight for the final stretch of uni before the Christmas holidays and good Lord I can't wait for the next three weeks to pass quickly. Btw, it was a no on putting the Christmas tree up early :(

P.S. I've had a handful of new followers - thank you for following me! As always, you can find me regularly updating on my Instagram too.

  4. Another sick outfit Jade. I really want a fur coat, possible a black one or a leopard print one. But they'd be rubbish when it rained but yolo( do people even say that anymore).

  7. I feel the exact same way you do about fur. And the one you're wearing is amazing! A lot of my furs have also been in my family for many decades, which makes them all the more special. Love the mix of textures in this look Congrats on the new followers and here's to the final stretch of school before the break, good luck lady! xx
