Fun with faux fur

Brown faux fur scarf worn over shoulder of black jacket

 I was thrilled to receive a faux fur stole for Christmas. It's ideal for draping over a shoulder and securing with a belt. Here I'm wearing it with a black jacket, black polo neck jumper, felted brooch of a Herdy (Herdwick sheep, found in the Lake District) and a grey skirt with asymetrical hem, plus my "mean" pointy black ankle boots. The scarf is the same colour, more or less, as my hair!

I also tried the fur stole with a green jacket, brown trousers and gold boots - but I think it looks better with the black ensemble.

I love faux fur and this hat, bought when I lived in Munich in 2000/20001, is the only leopard print item I've ever owned.  You get a nice close-up of Herdy too. I don't have many hats (why not?!) but I love the way Judith at Style Crone makes hats such a key part of her outfits and I was itching to join her Hat Attack link up, so here we are!
