Venus in Furs

Faux Fur Coat

I found this faux fur coat in the op-shop last week and I couldn't resist. It's unbelievably soft and has gorgeous, dusky pink lining. I know fur (faux and real) can be very divisive. Some people think it looks tacky but I love it when paired with vintage style clothes.
I've been wanting to make a vintage style faux fur swing coat for a while but faux fur is about $90 a metre here which is well beyond my limited budget. I think this is a far more reasonably priced substitute.

Thanks for all your sweet comments about my hair in the last post. This is it unstraightened. It's gone even curlier since I've had it cut!


  1. I don't know how i managed to miss your last post but I did so I just needed to say OMG holy awesome hair batman! It looks wicked. I really need to dye mine again soon. It is getting a little boring.

  2. Cool coat, does it close in the front?

  3. Thanks. Yes, it has a giant hook and eye thing hidden in the fur.

  4. Looking adorable!I like the curly!
    Cute coat,dahl.Shit,I must email you-sorry!x
