OOTD - Vintage Faux Fur for Winter


How was your weekend?  I had a great weekend full of family and friends, and managed to be out and about for the majority of the weekend - despite the frigid temperatures.  Toronto is under another deep-freeze, with the addition of snow and overcast.  My first instinct with winter weather is to hibernate indoors in some PJs and, while I did do this for some of my weekend, I did brave the cold weather with the help of this Asos Vintage Faux Fur Coat.  I've mentioned how soft and luxurious this jacket feels in this post, and it lends the perfect vintage feel to any outfit while helping to stay warm and cozy.  Read on for additional photos and all outfit details.




Coat - Asos, Dress - H&M, Booties - Target


As I has mentioned in my 2015 blogging resolutions post, I have vowed to make more of an effort to shot outfit photos in different locations other than my typical white wall.  This beautiful, snow-covered location is a small park close to our place and, not only was not only was it fun to take photos in such a serene place, I'm also very pleased with how they turned out!  I find these photos much more interesting to look at, as opposed to a white wall.  On the flip side the background can be distracting, and the white wall seems to highlight my outfit more.  What do you guys think?



I honestly can't get enough of this vintage faux-fur coat, and just love the added dimension and texture it brings to plain outfits as well as it's warmth.  What do you think?  Let me know!

    1. Thanks Kris, I'm really loving the change of scenery! I have a soft spot for the white wall as well, but we're moving soon - will need to find a replacement wall!

    1. Thanks Gabriella! I've gotten away from the bold lip lately, but I think that I'm going to start bringing it back!

  3. I think faux fur is a way to stay cozy yet sophisticated at the same time. I was in Manhattan over the weekend and it was a cold one, I saw so many fur (hopefully faux) coats and became slightly jealous because mine wasn't so toasty. You look great!

    1. OHH Manhattan - one of my favourite cities! I'm flying there for the weekend in a few months, hopefully it will be much too warm for faux fur at that time! How was your trip?

  5. That patterned dress adds the perfect texture under the fur coat.
    You look fantastic, and I'm impressed you went out to shoot in all that snow!
