Outfit in shades of purple

faux fur coat and corduroy skirt outfit

Hello stylish ladies! What is your favorite color? I have to confess that my love is the color of purple, in all its numerous shades. And my today's look, except for the bag and shoes, represents this love. To tell you the truth, it's not that often that I manage to find interesting pieces of clothing in my favorite colors. This lavender faux fur coat and the lilac corduroy skirt happen to be my recent purchases. To find a fur coat in such a color - it was just rare luck! And a skirt in lilac, you don't see it around that much, too. So, finding these two lovely pieces really made me happy. And I've been just waiting for suitable weather to be able to wear these newly bought things. And so, the day has come!

The fur coat is soooo soft and so pleasant to touch, I feel like I could spend the whole day stroking it. It's such a pleasure to put this thing on.

Did you know? Faux fur was first introduced on the market in 1929. These early attempts at imitation fur were made using hair from the alpaca. In the 1940s, the quality of fake furs was vastly improved by advances in textile manufacture technology. However, the true modern fake furs were not developed until the mid-1950s, with the introduction of acrylic polymers as replacements for alpaca hair.

Under the coat, I'm wearing a very old woolen sweater. It's thin but warm which makes it a good choice for wearing underneath. It's also quite beautiful being in my favorite color and containing a metal thread that gives it a lovely spark under the light.

The pencil shape of the skirt goes perfectly with the coat, not allowing me to look too bulky. And the cats scarf in darker shades of purple add more interest and fun to the outfit as well as keeping my neck protected from the wind.

The cat bag and the ankle boots in beige complete my today's look.
