One of the surprise pieces I bought this year was a vintage 1940’s coat.  A surprise because of the shape..it’s dark brown sheepskin with pure american football style shoulders.  And my, those shoulders make you feel gooooooooood…I call it my bitch coat…

Perfectly balancing out the flare..

The shorter shape works too..

I think I need another one..

Flying fur..

It’s a sign of the times when fur both becomes common place and mixed with casual fashion..camo trousers and casual fur jacket: an unexpected marriage made in heaven, worn here by the iconic Jenna Lyons.

But I’m curious: Why the turn fur acceptance turn-around? Is it because faux fur is so good we can’t spot the difference, giving free-reign to choosing the real stuff? Or maybe all these photos are of Jenna in fake.  But I don’t think so…

Is it that fur has moved with the political times and is now a tightly controlled industry where cruelty has been banished? Or is there a leniency to vintage fur under the heading  ‘eco-friendly’ in a wasteful planet? I just don’t know..

All I do know, is fabulous as Jenna looks, this outfit would’ve caused an outrage even ten years ago…so why not now?
