My friend, My faux




For the first time in a very long time, the temperature dropped drastically, then warmed, then dropped again… and thus freakishly ping-ponged for the rest of the afternoon. Lucky for me, this meant temporarily gallivanting about random locations while adhering to the Holy Grail decree of the autumn season… faux fur.
While risking the possible horror of never locating this perfect-for-any-era and yet slightly glamorized statement, there it was. Nearly obscured among vintage racks and a pungent days-of-yore fragrance, I’d finally found my friend, my faux. I’m guessing it’s something in the air, because I own at least half a dozen of these retro coats and moments preceding this post, became legal guardian of one more orphaned on eBay. But in this sublime parade of fashion ecstasy, I had to wonder... have I caught some sort of communicable faux fur addiction? Possibly.

Simply gorgeous! Sometimes weather-freakishness has a positive effect, clearly!

I too have found my thoughts turning to my faux... my mother's 1970s faux fur swing coat that vanishes from my mind each summer and returns with the first properly cold snap.

Sadly where I live in the UK it's been a few weeks since bare legs have been an option, and I must say my faux is also a much lusher affair more suited to Winter than Fall...

Perhaps I should follow your excellent example and browse eBay for a finer faux that might work next September in the brief in-between season moment. I would like to emulate your stylish fur-legs combination!

p.s. thanks for your comment - I'm working on posting proper "outfit" photos - just need to get a system in place!

Strange weather! I love the coat. I desperately want a piece of fur (real or otherwise, honestly...), but I always feel so wrong when I put them on...

And the stylish mix faux-fur / mini skirt is very "JamesBONDGirl-esque" !!! Even if you're really glowing under the sun's caress with bare arms . . .

I love your shoes, dear. You look gorgeous in that fur as well. Lucky, I want one soooo very bad!

I know, for me Halloween is such a cozy feeling (we actually start to get a bit of cooler weather this time of year) more family get togethers, dinner parties and candy. ;)

I watched Family Feud last night, Halloween style, it was cute. Have fun at your after party tonight, sweetie.

I think you look so fabulous in all your pics. I'm glad to hear you've chosen the faux route and your skirt below looks VERY much like what Ms Bradshaw would wear, MEGA MEGA MEGA KUDOS to your award!!!! I could tell you would become a brilliant scholar one day. Smart and pretty? So not fair lol.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
