I'm pretty neutral when it comes to fur. I don't really care either way. I'm not a crazy fanatic against it, but I'm not a crazy fanatic for it. It is a pleasant thing to have around though, because it adds variety in texture and themes to an outfit. I have a few fur coats but I like the idea of wearing the scraps of fur. I recently went on a fox tail hunt, which has about the same difficulty level as trying to hunt a live fox in Manhattan. I somehow weaseled my way in to a work room where I found a big fat box of fur scraps that no one cared to have. Aside from getting verbally harrassed by the manager for wasting her time (when I was going to buy the unwanted fur), I found some beautiful tails. In New Mexico, I bought a dyed rabbit pelt from a tourist junk store, and to top it off my boyfriend sent me a random bit of boars skin. The fur scraps almost dig into a Native American and as my boyfriend would say a "Mad Max" feel.
Boar Skin used as a supersized belt, Jeremy Scott crop top, Rogan for Target Leopard Print Dress, Vivienne Westwood Socks, Irregular Choice platforms, Vintage necklaces from Texas
White Rabbit Pelt hooked onto belt, Jovovich Hawk for Target billowy dress, 3.1 Philip Lim tank, vintage necklace, vintage belt, vintage Stuart Weitzman oxfords
Fox Tail pinned to belt and skirt, JC de Castelbajac smiley shirt, vintage plaid skirt, American Apparel tights, vintage lace up booties
My mother said that if Obama won, I could get these Irregular Choice platforms that I've had my eye on for a while. And thank Jesus he did. The sculptural heel gives me just the right dosage of Prada/Miu Miu sculptural cartoonism that I have been nonstop thinking about. Go ahead and give me the looks of gloom, I purchased them at Urban Outfitters. They will work for Winter with a thick sock and leggings to pull in a grunge/trash look for the cold cold days of winter- Kaylee Tankus Silver leggings, Vivienne Westwood socks (turned inside out)
And a blue transparent sock for warmer days to contrast with the orange tones.- Vivienne Westwood socks (not turned inside out)
