fantasy outfit #5… total price: $8000 (R58,500) uuuum. yes okay, it’s mostly from net-a-porter.

man-o-lantern it’s been cold this weekend! just when i was babbling about it being so warm and un-winter like the cape decides to pull one of it’s classic rainy sessions. so this fantasy outfit is based around a fuck-off warm jacket. sometimes i feel a bit bad about shearling… but i eat lamb so who am i to talk? don’t hate me, vegetarians.

ps: perhaps one day i will look back and be amused at my choice of shoe, but i am quite taken with swedish hasbeens and any kind of wooden platform. oh well. pps: there’s a cup of coffee in there… yes there is.

dace has a great lookbook for their fall / winter 2010 collection. it looks like what we have been missing weather wise here in south africa (not that i’m complaining about the sunny awesomeness we’ve been blessed with, but i do enjoy the odd grey day). they also have quite a cool video accompanying the lookbook. see all the clothes here.

as i type this it’s 6.4°C outside (and i’m cursing myself for leaving my fingerless gloves at home). i visited one of my best friends the other day and her gran had left her a genuine fur coat in her will (i think it was… leopard? it was some kind of hectic big cat fur). i tried it on and even though it was lovely and warm i felt really, really wrong wearing it and had to take it off after not even a minute. perhaps if i lived as an inuit wearing fur would be okay, but for now i will just admire how nice it looks and maybe look for a coat of the fake variety.
