Faux fur | Fashion Union

Faux Fur Gilet | Sheffield Fashion Blogger | Outfit post

I got a little overexcited by black and white effects on photoshot, but given I'm in an all-grey outfit today - it doesn't make too much difference really!

This faux fur gilet from Fashion Union (similar here) is keeping me thoroughly snug, and I've had so many compliments about it! It's more textured than lots of gilets out there - more "raccoon" than anything - and I really love it teamed with my leather leggings and knitted beanie. In it, I can pretend I'm some sort of leggy blonde Swedish model who gets street style snapped by top European fashion magazines. When in reality I'm a knackered brunette (sorry bleach) who eats too many crumpets for toned pins living in rainy Nottinghamshire. We can dream, eh?

I'm off to see Gravity in 3D tonight with the boy, and I'm so nervous! Though I love a good sci-fi - apocalyptic death in isolated space scares me silly. I'm taking a pillow to hide behind, all the same!

Tomorrow I'm heading to Banbury to see Ivy, my pal from school. I predict cocktails galore and probably a girlie film or two (sorry boys), so follow me on Instagram if you wanna see what we get up to. Have a good weekend folks!

  4. This outfit makes you look super tall, is it an illusion or are you actually pretty tall? Have a nice w/e.
