Fur Sure

I bought a fur collar for £12.99 in H&M yesterday and it *might* have changed my life. Just look how much cooler it makes my oversized blazer jacket look:

Before:

Androgynous...

After:

OMG, glam-over!!!
I'm thrilled with it! My jacket was a charity shop number. I bought it in Bexhill on the day I found out I got my job at Company but have never worn it because I've felt like it's a bit too broad for me. But my new fur makes ALL the difference :) I'm wearing a bobbly old jersey H&M top and my awesome corduroy leggings from Uniqlo (which were only £14.99) - can't link as they're sold out, but worth a look if you're near a Uniqlo! My studded beauties are Jeffrey Campbell c/o Sarenza 


My 'love' necklace is from Claire's and the origami swan is H&M.

My hair's getting to the floppy mop stage of growing it out. Think I'm going to get a fringe trim at the weekend so I look more Amelie-esque. All I want is a bob. I just think everything I want to wear would make more sense if I had longer hair. It's surprising the things that don't suit you when you have short hair. Even down to earrings (I just look bizarre in them!)

Have had a lovely night catching up with my Topshop pals over a Wetherspoons roast (don't judge me!) Now gotta tidy the house so Alex doesn't detect the bombsite I have created in his absence. Think floordrobe!

  15. Gotta love a fur collar. I hear you about the hair thing.. I'm at the stage where I think if my hair grew a little bit more my life would improve drastically, but then I give myself a talking to and realise how ridiculous that is. But still, it would be nice to have longer hair.

  16. I agree that things look different with longer hair, I feel that I can wear more shapeless, androgynous things now and the hair softens it a bit. I know I've cheated slightly but longer hair as changed my life, I feel as if I'm in character most of the time, a cuter version of myself. Love the necklace!

  42. LOVE this look. Did you have to pin the collar in place or does it just rest around your shoulders??

  43. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
