My lovely friend bought me a black fur muff for Christmas- its one of those things I always think are cute, but I've never bothered to buy one for myself. Not only does it keep my hands warm, but it also helps me achieve that evil Victorian child look I never knew I wanted (see above). Anyway, enough muff talk....(perhaps I should call it a handwarmer instead of muff?)
Underneath my coat is a red devore blouse I bought a few weeks ago (along with the cape in my Christmas outfit post) from a delightful Etsy seller who was having a ridiculous half price sale. It too is from 1920's, and despite being several sizes too big for me, it was too beautiful and cheap to ignore. As soon as I had it on and belted, it reminded me of a dress from Prada's fall 09 collection. I love the way the red velvet sort of glows on the black silk backing.
Coat (Mango), boots (Blay), vintage hat, muff (gift), scarf (Tie Rack), cardigan (Primark), vintage blouse, leggings (Topshop)
...And the ring I'm wearing was a Christmas present from my gorgeous boyfriend. I've wanted a camphor ring for aaages, and he bought me a most beauteous 1920's one with lots of filigree work and a rather modest diamond in the centre of the camphor.
