Oxblood and faux fur...

The title of this blog post sounds much more violent than the reality! It's amazing how much your style changes in a year or two and looking back to the last time I wore this fake fur on the blog was really quite a shock. I originally bought this coat off Ebay as I wanted a fake fur but was loath to pay too much money, especially as I knew I wouldn't wear it that often. When this one arrived, although I loved it, it wasn't the most flattering so it got pushed to the back of the wardrobe, languishing, unloved on a hanger. Luckily, when I was considering buying a fur gilet to layer up this year, I remembered that I had this coat and figured that as I rarely wore it, chopping off the sleeves couldn't do much harm! 

Fur gilet:  DIY from Dorothy Perkins fake fur, blouse: New Look, cardigan: Marks & Spencer, jeans: Miss Selfridge,  glittery brogues: Marks & Spencer 
It's still not very flattering but I don't know what to change to make it more wearable, maybe trim the shoulders down? 


I wanted an outfit that was cosy but still looked like I had made an effort and although I look really miserable in these photos, I loved the metallic tones with the berry jeans...


I bought this cardigan in the sale at good old M&S at the same time I bought this skirt and these shoes and this is the first time it has debuted on the blog! I loved the gold leaf effect that is sprayed (?) all over and considering that it it is cropped and full of holes, it is surprisingly warm! 


Plus it matched my glittery brogues perfectly, what more could you ask for? This combination will definitely be making a reappearance at a sequin Monday at some point! 

SWOOOOOSH!
Outtake of the day: me perfecting my hair model pose, am I really worth it?! 

What would you do to make the jacket more wearable? Do you like things to match?

I love your faux fur: it looks great on you. But it's your cardigan that I absolutely need in my life.

I love the glitzy cardigan :) I really like the faux fur gilet too, I'm not sure how I'd style it, maybe over a white shirt?

I love this whole outfit but I know what you mean about the fur. I'd put a huge belt around it to show off your waist then I think it would look fab xxx
