Saturday is upon us and I am serving Fur real today!!! I'm not really one for animal fur; a faux is just fine for me. The coat I am wearing is the exception , only because it was pretty much a steal. So yeah, I have pretty much been thrifting my whole life. On a Saturday morning thrifting trip with my mom, about 10 years ago, we came across a yard sale at a church. I saw this coat and was in looooove!! The price? $5!!! It's safe to say all I could hear in the background was Patti LaBelle's "When you've been blessed" lol. This fur is 100% rabbit and after 10 years of hanging in the closet , I am finally ready to slay in it. It does shed a little bit, but the $5 price tag leaves me with no regrets. Not only is it super warm, but it has a waist cincher made into to coat. It also has a collar on it; I just decided to fold it in for this look.
I saw so many great pics from New York Fashion Week, but I'm stuck here in NC just wishing. This look is what I would wear if I had been in New York this week. Street style is what I live for! So vibrant, unexpected and very non-traditional all the things I love in a good ensemble. I feel my look definitely embodies all of that. From the nineties-inspired color palette and patent leather boots (PublicDesire.com, $52) to the colorful fur scarf (asos.com, $20).My green neoprene sweatshirt I got last year on Romwe.com for $20.The barely there shorts I have on are from Forever21 ($4) they have fringes on them , but I ripped them off. Mini bags, especially the structured ones have been spied on all the fashionistas including Jamie Chung , Rihanna, and editor -in -chic Anna Dello Russo. While my black mini resembles a baby Birkin, it is far from it. This leather love was thrifted for only $5.I am such a big proponent for accessories that I made sure to wear my striped gloves to ensure a standout statement look. When you have a look that is bound to turn heads, its best to keep the face beat simple.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
