Faux fur I suspect there is a strong possibility that you may have seen it in the shops, or even someone wearing it. How about the brightly coloured faux furs, have you seen those yet? I am enjoying seeing them everywhere lately. If you are a regular reader of Lazy Daisy Jones then I am sure you know by now that I am a huge fan of colour, so no surprise there then!
The surprise is on me. I wrongly believed only the young could wear it (i.e. those under thirty, the millennials and the teens) but surely not the over 50’s…?
Ok, so here is a big ‘Faux Fur’ surprise for you…Yes, that is me! I kid you not at 54 years old, wearing faux fur but not only that, a bright canary yellow faux fur. Therefore if I can do it and enjoy it immensely, then you can to. Don’t be afraid just go for it!
If I were posh I would call it an ‘Ochre with an overall mustard tone’ What would you call that colour huh? I must admit ‘Big Bird’ from Sesame St. also came to mind!
Usually my dog walking attire is far more subdued and practical. However, to share this delightful apparition with you I needed photo evidence! Scroll on…
You won’t believe the compliments I receive when I wear this piece of fluffy gorgeousness. It makes wearing this coat even more fun…
BTW. where the wild things are was one of my favourite books to red to my son when he was younger.
While I am chatting about fur, I thought it highly appropriate that our dog was acting as the perfect accessory. However, he did not act as the perfect gentleman when we got him home. He discovered the faux fur coats abandoned on the sofa and decided to show his ‘love’ for the black one, if you get my meaning?
The Yellow Faux Fur: aka The Big Bird Coat
The coat is incredibly warm, very soft, fully lined, has a popper front fastenings and deep pockets. Size wise I would say it comes up a little small (as it’s probably meant for the teens, shhhhh) It comes from a company called LOTD.COM as does my next faux fur…
(Edit I think they may have changed to ‘I saw it first.com’)
The t-shirt says ‘spreading the joy of fashion’ and is from River Island
The Black Faux Fur:
This one is a more traditional gilet style. Jet black in colour, a little fluffier, fully lined and is perfect for layering over the chunky knitwear, that is all over the high street right now. I would also wear this over a casual winter dress instead of a cardi.

The old fluffy Grey Faux Fur Gilet:
Just to show you I am not jumping on the bandwagon. This grey fur gilet is over 8 years old and is from Boden. I still wear it and because it is older I don’t worry about it getting dirty on a dog walk. I also wash it in the washing machine from time to time, then hang it in the airing cupboard and give it a good brush when it is dry. It is rather like grooming a well-loved pet!
