the weather outside is frightful



I was beyond thrilled to find this coat (which has already earned me countless Little Red Riding Hood taunts) on a recent trip to Value Village for a mere $20!!! It might just be heavy enough to function suitably in -30C, which is only an added bonus considering how perfect the black velvet bow adorned collar is. Surviving in a climate comparable to that of Siberia (srsly though), it's near impossible to stay warm or at least avoid hypothermia during winter months; the faux fur accessories from asos are among my coveted winter pieces at the moment. No coincidence that the most ridiculous(ly amazing) ones are featured first.

No way, what a bargain! That coat is gorgeous, you got a real steal there.

Loving the faux fur too, I just bought a leopard print fur trapper hat with ears from Topshop, can't wait to wear it!

such a perfectly adorable find. i have such a thing for little fur collars this winter! i've started making my own - tons of fun - though bits of fur seem to constantly be floating round my house now.

I've never been that fussed on fur but the navy coat with the faux fur trim looks gorgeous :) x

That coat is amazing! And I'm loving faux fur everything at the moment too - luckily the charity shops have been kind to me recently and I've scored several faux fur collars and a cossack hat - yes!

I've only just stumbled across your blog but I love it already :)

faux fur accessories are my new love too! I just can't get enough of how comfy and warm they can be. I'll have to take a trip over to asos to take a look, thanks!
