Fur for me and you

March 6, 2013




I wore this little get-up to style stalk at London Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago and I recently re-wore it for a day at the Natural History museum. Only appropriate, right? I don’t know why these two things seem to have similar dress codes in my mind, but there you go! This way I can commune more with my taxidermied friends at the museum!

I didn’t realize it until now, but I got the the entire outfit at the Battersea car boot. I was so pleased when found this faux fur coat for five pounds, as I’ve been wanting a furry jacket for ages. These fake leather shorts were another happy purchase.

I had such a great time at the Natural History Museum. I’ll always pass by it, but have never gone in until now. I’ve always loved dinosaurs (anyone remember Dinotopia?!), so as soon as I walked in and saw “Dippy” in the lobby, I knew I was in my element. And anyone who knows me can attest that I do have a fondness for taxidermy. I was only disappointed that there wasn’t a wooly mammoth ;-)

    I love your fur coat! And that museum looks like so much fun! My husband keeps telling me about Dinotopia, but I’ve never read the books. So I might have to pick them up!

    Ha- I’m in the process of moving and just came across my old copy of Dinotopia. It must be very lovely to live near museums like that. So glad to see you take advantage of that. Also, love the hat.
