Oooh I probably felt the same way before I bought my grey leopard print faux fur coat. Well, although it is warming up I still get chances to wear it, usually at night and it’s great as formal outerwear. Everytime I look at it I just love it and fur really is a classic.
I’ve been thinking about finding a fur vest. I imagine it long hair, brown and a long vest, and I’d wear it with a summer dress. Kind of a natural ‘hippie’ look I’m going for.
But don’t be surprised to feel out of place wearing it regardless of what the weather is. Fur just attracts looks. And I’m glad you’re going for faux fur!
Over a summery dress is such a good Idea! Thanks! Ooooh, leopard! Where did you get yours? Looking for a cute, yet, inexpensive one seeing I don’t know how much werar i’ll be getting out of it ..posted over 4 years ago
Mine is from H&M and I got it on sale so it was about $30-40 CAD, I was looking for a good price too since I’m a starving student. Can I see the one you have your eye on? I’m thinking of making a fur vest instead of buying this time around. =]posted over 4 years ago
I think for the summer, it’s a no go… Because I think you would be melting in a vest like that… You can wear it now, when it’s still spring?posted over 4 years ago
I think you should leave it. You’re not going to get much wear from it, maybe a month at most because it will get too hot for fur, no matter how you try and wear it. Maybe you should wait until the end of the summer when it’s starting to cool down a bit and consider it as an autumn/winter item (plus there’ll probably be lots more choice in them by then as well).posted over 4 years ago
Yeah, that’s probably a better idea thanks!
That’s such a good idea to make one, sewing the fur would be difficult, my sewing is good but I don’t know if I could manage that. How are you thinking of doing it?posted over 4 years ago
Well, I used to sew fur leg warmers for a gogo dancer I knew and I didn’t really have a tactic, just kind of went for it. At least I learned how to cut fur and to comb it before sewing from those leg warmers. That fur I worked with was similar to what I have in mind, long hair so it won’t shed too bad once I cut it and while I’m sewing. It may also help that I sew with an industrial JUKI which can handle going over thick material.
But wearing it, I’m in Canada and we’re still getting random bouts of negative temperature and I’m predicting a cool summer so I luckily have more chances to wear fur. =]
