Merry Christmas ... Thougths About Fur.

non-political-correct christmas outfit ... fur: hand-me-down // belt on fur: came with some other item // scarf: flea market // long cardi: some store in nyc // dress: mädelsflohmarkt mannheim // leatherbelt: h&m // tights: c&a // wedges: gifted // bag: vintage // necklaces and earrings: thrifted, fleamarkets and vintage // bracelet: hand-me-down

dear readers - I whish you a merry chistmas!

i shot this outfit before i left for my family's home... in early 2010 my mum handed this vintage fur jacket down to me. i wasn't sure if i would wear it... as being a vegitarian for about fifteen years i don't feel quite pc about wearing a mink!

i still remember, when my mum came back home from shopping with my granny... she was so confused and upset about this jacket (me too. i was 7 years old and an enthusiastic animal lover)! actually my mum would never had worn a mink because of non- ethical husbandry. 'i really never, never, NEVER wanted this fur!' my mum confirms a minute ago . my granny thought this jacket would be a very useful and fashionable item in her daughters denim-all-over-closet! mum still wonders about how my granny persuaded her to bring this fur home.

to cut a long story short... i thougth it would be fun to surprise my mum by wearing this mink on christmas. hehehe, she really was surprised.

we (mum & i) decided that those minks - who had to die for this jacket nearly 25 years ago - won't get back to live by tossing it away. ok, the mink is going to stay in my wardrobe but i definitly can't promise wearing it in public...

Till Summer

trying around with a long summer skirt, which doesn't look quite good worn as a skirt... vintage skirt: ebay, skirt worn as a dress // woolen coat: promod // belt: thrifted // leggins: h&m // vintage boots: mankii vintage // morocco vintage bag: fle market // earrings: schmuckrausch ... i didn't went out with this outfit at last, because i wasn't able to close the skirt. it fits perfectly on my petite waist, which is much smaller than my upper part of the body. hopefully i will find an invisble alternative to close this skirt/dress in the back till summertime.

zoo on my sofa

this post is actually not about fashion ... shirt: h&m // vintage skirt: ebay // belt: ebay, came with another vintage skirt // tights: primark // brogues: primark

i don't like my old sofa from ikea very much... but there's no money to buy another. the worst thing about it is it's red colour. i thought about buying a new seat cover but i didn't saw a pleasing coloured cover at the shop. when i found a dark leopard fur fabric in the cellar again while i was boxing for the move, i suddenly decided to sew pillowcases of it. i thought it would look great with my old golden framed leopard fur and my vintage armchair which is covered with the same fur. some weeks ago i found some more spotted furry pillows... Now there's a little family of several cats of prey living on my red sofa... it's a good deal, i suppose .
