Lady Gaga is a fashion icon. With two Vogue covers under her belt (including one September issue out soon), she is a modern-day trendsetter. But recently, she was blasted by critics for wearing fur when she was spotted wearing a large, oversized fur coat while on her European tour. Lady Gaga didn’t ignore the controversy and tweeted, “For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES.

Ever since I have come to Europe, it seems like I brought the cold, Canadian winter along with me. This outfit helps me deal with the cold, though I wish Spring would come so I could break out summer dresses and pastels! I’m wearing a sweater dress, sequin beret, Kenneth Cole purple leather driving gloves and a vintage fox fur vest. I love that vest with all my heart and it keeps me warm when the mercury drops.
Here’s a quick outfit post in time for the cold weather we’ve been having. This vintage suede jacket was repurposed and brought back to life with a gorgeous fox fur collar. I love the unexpected teal colour and it fit me like a glove! I would have bought it, if only the sleeves were a bit longer. It was a piece I tried on at enchanted, a vintage exhibitor at the One of A Kind Christmas Show back in December. I love that many labels are being eco-conscious and are bringing old fur back to life. And I like how this piece felt anything but recycled! The tights are H&M and my boots are from Poetic License. Fur, pearls and polka dot tights. These are a few of my favourite things.
