Venus in Furs

December 2, 2010

This coat wins the prize for Warmest Thing Ever. Considering the fact that I’m always freakishly cold, I am completely head over heels in love with it!

♪ Venus in Furs – Velvet Underground ♪

All our snow’s gone! It’s so depressing :(. All that’s left is what you can see up on the mountains there. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I hope some more comes soon. I’m kind of liking winter this time round…I guess this year’s been more fun because I’ve forced myself to do more fun winter activities so that I spend less time focusing on the shitty parts of the season and more time actually enjoying it.

I just got back from It’s A Wonderful Life, which is currently playing on Granville Island, and it was fabulous! If you live in Vancouver go see it, it was such a feel-good production and really well-done.

    ^lol nice comment up there. it's FAUX fur! that just goes to show how often people actually read content.

    that aside, Alexandra, you look amazing in these photos! i'm sure you get this a lot (or not) but you look a lot like Megan Fox, but better. and well, I know some ppl like her while others don't, but take it as a compliment! def love your accessories esp the necklace and leopard print clutch!

    thanks for all your super sweet comments! the faux fur collar came out a few months ago, just around when the joe fresh store opened. i lucked out and found this one hanging all by its lonesome in a corner haha but there's a faux fur infinity scarf for $15 that I'm the IT Girl blogged about yesterday, and it's made of the same faux fur material. I should be wearing a parka instead of gallivanting around in shorts lol

    You look ravishing! Like totally stunning. But you always do! Your coat looks so cozy. I have one similar to it and I love snuggling into it during the frosty months. The scenery in these shots is gorgeous as well. It makes me want to desperately visit Vancouver. Maybe we could house swap. We have snow here! ha ha

    Gotta love Joe Fresh! The coat looks great! And I hear you, the rain just came and washed away all of our snow, too, and I would much rather snow than rain… it was feeling so festive! Thanks for your sweet comment!
