Styling Long Colourful Faux Fur Coat
This past week has been pretty lovely; a few standouts include modelling bridalwear (can't wait to share more!), shooting new looks for the blog and meetings with a couple of dreamy brands!  I've also been having a bit of a 'metallic moment', seeing me buy over-the-knee glitter boots in the Topshop sale (sneak peek on my Twitter) and uhh, sprinkling gold flakes over a doughnut - sassy doughnut alert.  But it also brought with it something a lot more serious.  While in London, an animal rights protest was taking place outside a popular outerwear store, spreading the message of their cruelty to animals.  Honestly, through seeing constant strong expression online and clear disliking of people choosing to wear real fur, I'd started to kid myself into thinking that out in the world, wearing real fur was a thing of the past.  Except, it's not.  I'm not here to judge, but I am here to help spread the message of how gorgeous (and warm!) faux fur can be and how unnecessary it is to look at real alternatives.  Bottom line?  It's cool to be kind.

My latest faux fur crush is this drop dead gorgeous two-tone coat by Bandits, my first purchase from the brand - though unlikely to be the last!  Never thought I'd say this, but I now love colourful faux fur.  The icy blue shade is perfect for winter, while still keeping the heat in thanks to the longer length.  I've got to admit, I've always had a bit of a 'thing' for the glamorous combo of faux fur and sunglasses - so, bring on the winter sun!  Speaking of which, these Marc Jacobs beauties from Sunglasses Shop have been my go-tos for the past month.  I absolutely adore the gold metal running over the top of the frame, as well as the luxe oversized square design - expect to see me wearing these again (and again, and again...).  Opt for this chic classic black pair, or  stand out with the patterned version.

There are some seriously dreamy, colourful options around right now.  Besides this new addition to my wardrobe, I'm also tempted by striking pink faux fur coats such as Jakke's animal stripe or hot pink versions at ASOS (so stylish!).  Anyway, I've linked some other fabulously colourful options below.  Enjoy!
