A touch of Fur

by Lee Oliveira on November 19, 2010

Several of my readers will know how crazy I get when I see furs on their blogs or a picture over the net. You rarely see fur on the streets of Sydney at this time of the year. In fact, you rarely see it at all as our climate really doesn’t match anything related to fur. So, I was over the moon when I spotted Marina on this unseasonably cool day with her “touch of fur” hahaha

Marina wears top by Sass &Bide, vintage fur, skirt by Kate Sylvester, shoes by Sergio Rossi, bag by YSL and Angel fragrance by Thierry Mugler

Marina looked fantastic in nude colours and how cute was her Sergio Rossi T bar sandals?!!.. Let’s not forget that YSL bag.

Of course, before she disappeared I had to touch her fur vest. And … it felt good!!!

Thanks Marina, I hope your husband wasn’t mad at me for keeping him waiting in the car.

You will never see fur in my blog, but I adore the way she looks, and the way you photograph people. You keep her fur, I will have the bag. Deal????????????????????
Un abrazo muy fuerte.
You are doing a superb job, and I do thank you for it.

Gorgeous Lee!!
I love just a touch of fur (preferably faux – ‘they’ make great things now) as opposed to appearing like a creature oneself. She’s stunning.

Have a great weekend you!

well, at least that you can still see people wear fur in sydney in certain times of the year,, nobody wears fur here in indonesia !! the weather is just too hot all year round, and people will just stare if you have fur on..

Maddy November 20, 2010

Her YSL bag is GORGEOUS!!!! My favorite thing about her fabulous ensemble!

wow she has a ballerina look…I love the neutral colors and the fur added spice to the outfit!!!

I love it!!!


Liz S. November 20, 2010

You are so cute with your comments Lee… :)
Marina looks great–her dark hair against the neutrals is awesome….and just that slight pickup of black in the fur and the brown on the end of her hair–makes it, I think.

Oh, and wonderfully lush backdrop too. We are pretty lucky with the rain bursts and milder weather IMO.

She looks very cute with a fur. Hers is very pretty. They are everywhere this season cannot blame a girl even in Australia for wearing one under the sun.

Great find, love her skirt and the color of the bag. It’s so nice to see you so excited over this. You seem to have a bubbly personality and that’s what makes everyone sit down and talk with you even though they have their husband waiting in the car for them :))

Very true. I hardly see anyone in fur around here and I don’t have any either. She’s done this look so well with a tastefull bit of fur and that bag. Love!

Ooh, I love her fur, and her bag. And I think the first photo is one of your best ever, Lee!

kristy November 21, 2010

that absolutely has to be one of the cutest fur vests i’ve ever seen. and you can tell it’s real. i’m really on the fence about fur. on the one hand it’s a natural resource and i prefer it to faux fur, bc faux fur and leather are created using tons of chemicals that just get dumped into oceans and that isn’t any better for animals or people. on the other hand, fur and leather are treated with chemicals as well. if more fur and leather was vegetable tanned, i would be so much more ok with it.

but anyway! that’s my environmental rant for the day. =P this was a great find. how cool that you found pretty much the only fur piece in sydney and were able to take a picture?!

definitely one of my fave posts…although i’m more of a faux fur kind of gal, the fur vest she’s wearing really completes this look. her look is truly classy and sophisticated.

I love the light colours and a touch of fur for glamour. i don’t have a problem with it as long as it’s worn well and appropriate for the weather.
