I have a real craving for a big fluffy faux fur coat, I can't escape it. I would much rather find a vintage faux fur than buy a new one from Topshop or FCUK but vintage sizes seem to be huge! I don't know if it because fur coats are not supposed to look fitted but every time I think I have found the coat of my desire it turns out to be a size 16....boo!
I came across this lovely caught in the moment picture of some ladies at a wedding and thought how gorgeous the lady's fur stole looks with the cream of her dress. Very Art Deco, a girl after my own heart. I longed to purchase a stole for my wedding but knew that I might wear it for 5 seconds and then it would probably end up being fashioned as a puppet by a drunken fool.
Maggie Cook sells her beautiful, intricate designs through Pretaportobello. The chiffon layering is so soft and pretty, it won't do much to keep you warm on a normal day but will help keep the chill from a buzzing bride's shoulders.
I love Faux Play (love the name and these fluffy little numbers will turn you on in a different way!) They have a huge range of different shapes and sizes and also offer a bespoke service, good for low backed dresses or those wanting something totally unique! How many bridesmaids can you spot in this picture!
