The Best Red Faux Fur Coat
This past December, we were lucky in Seattle to have a white Christmas! Growing up in a place where snow sticking is a somewhat rare event, it was absolutely perfect! Seattle has had only 8 white Christmases in 121 years, since they've started recording the weather in 1891. So of course I had to run outside and snap some winter wonderland pictures to commemorate the special occasion.
I wore this beautiful faux fur coat I got for Christmas at H&M. The stunning crimson color popped out perfectly against my all-white background for my snowy photoshoot. What I love about this coat is that it is wonderfully warm—even in the snow! Despite becoming (slightly) more weather-strengthened living in Poland and Newcastle this year, I believe even the old freezing me would have felt completely comfortable in this coat. I'm very ready to wear this on a night out in "Toon" in Newcastle so I don't have to sacrifice comfort for the sake of looking dressed up. I am a big believer in statement coats just for this reason.
It is hard not to feel completely luxurious in this coat. I'm going to have so much fun both dressing it up and down this winter. You could wear this coat with jeans on a night out and still look glamorous. For Christmas, I wore it with these over the knee boots from Zara I bought last year.
For the smaller deets, I wore a pair of gold vintage earrings from Goodwill (where I buy most of my vintage jewelry) and some red lipstick for an extra bold statement.
It's supposed to snow in Newcastle tomorrow (today it was mixed rain & snow which unfortunately didn't stick). Maybe, I'll have some more fun in the snow while wearing this beauty. What were some of your favorite Christmas presents in 2017?
