A little while ago I mentioned that I got a great faux fur coat, and I finally got a chance to wear it and photograph it. I first saw it in October at a Boldfacer’s event and fell in love. I followed the shopping rule that everyone says you should- I walked away and gave it 24 hours to see if I still loved it. And 3 days later, I was still obsessing and went to Lit Boutique to get it. And I’m still obsessed with it!

faux fur coat

I wore this Thursday night to the Pretty. Eventful. charity fashion show, which was a blast because 1) the outfits (from Turtle in the South End) were great, 2) the model’s bouffants have me now trying everything possible to make my hair MASSIVE, 3) I got to meet some more boston-based bloggers who were very cool, and 4) I won a very generous gift card to Union Bar and Grille! My first thought was “I’m going to take a date out on the most awesome dinner date ever, and he’ll have to put out.” Then I thought that it’d be nice to get my parents out of the ‘burbs to enjoy a nice night out. Yep, I’m a good daughter.

Please notice the new table, which the cats have decided is their new lookout post. I love it. Love it!

So all the plants have been transferred to the other side of the wall. I feel like I need to redecorate so the rest of my apartment matches my cool new table.

UPDATE: It seems I’m not the only one who thinks a snakeskin silver side table is a great idea! For those who asked, I got the table at Homegoods in Braintree, MA. It was the only one in the store and didn’t have a label or brand name, unfortunately. However, Homegoods is a great place to find oneoff’s like the table so I highly recommend checking out your local one.

    That coat is so gorgeous! I realized after I got home from drooling over it in Lit that I have the exact same one on my Nasty Gal wish list. Also, super jealous of your Helmut Lang find.

    Where did you get the table? I LOVE it! Also, are your mirror butterflies from Target? I just bought some of their stuff like that on sale to hang on my stairwell – black birds.

    Where’d you find the table? It’s almost as amazing as the jacket. ;)

  • Allie November 13, 2010, 8:49 pm

    I heart you, that’s all. I love everything about it.

  • Nfletcherperry November 13, 2010, 11:22 pm

    Ok, I’ll overlook the fact that I wasn’t included as one of the best parts of the Pretty Eventful show. I’ll assume it was implied! So, I obviously love this jacket. But I’m pretty mad I didn’t get to see the top underneath. I love the sleeves. It’s so cool and comfy looking! Also, I’m dying over you and your cat in that picture. Too cute! Was this staged or is this just what you guys do at home?

    Love the jacket, Helmut Lang and table. Where did you snag the table? Inquiring minds want to know!

    PS, are you going to the swap this week? I want to finally attend my first Swapholics event but I fear I have to work!

    Oh my goodness. I just died at that photo of you and your kitty. Cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

    Sounds like you had so much fun. Love your shirt and coat!
