Here are some more pictures of the faux fur collection.  Sorry for the double posting, but this has been quite an undertaking for both Jane and me.

More blonde faux fur

This is a great dirty blonde faux mink coat.

Close up….

Leopard tree

Me wearing my amazing mohair faux leopard.  I've been looking for a vintage leopard coat forever, but most of them resemble a bad stuffed animal won at a carnival.  This is the perfect type of fake leopard fur.  It's kind of stiff and bristly.  Elizabeth and James have a really cute faux leopard fur out in stores now, but it's over $600!!  I like mine much better, and it was only $10.  Truly a great vintage find.

Jil sander

Jil Sander pump from several seasons past.  I love these pumps!!

Detail shot of the leopard coat, and this cute shaggy coat Jane and I picked up at a vintage store in Shimokitazawa, a really funky neighborhood in Tokyo near Shibuya.

T coat

A better shot of the shaggy coat.  Jane is wearing new Ann D.'s.  Her shoes have been amazing the last three seasons.  More vintage fur to come…..

    Did you get the Jil Sanders from handmadeinitaly on ebay? They’ve got a great selection right now and I’ve got my eye on a pair of metallic pointy oxfords from the same season.

    Nicole—I find vintage furs all over the D/FW area. Estate sales, thrift stores, charity events, and flea markets. This has been almost a year of collecting. I hope to find more!

    I agree with the other commentors that this is an absolutely beautiful collection of faux furs that you’ve put together. My husband’s grandmother loves faux leopard print, so I’ve seen my fair share of bad fake leopard, HaHa.

    Wow Judy they are completely gorgeous, I especially adore the texture of the shaggy faux fur. Just a quick question about the Jil Sanders…I’m looking to get myself a pair and was wondering if they fit TTS and if they are comfortable? I know Jil Sander shoes are normally notoriously hard to walk in…

    I was watching “Just shoot me” the other night & Mia was wearing the exact same leopard coat with a little black dress – very 90s & I straight away thought it would look so good on you. And here it is!! De ja vu!

    it doesn’t look like a fake stuffed animal because that actually isn’t leopard. It’s cheetah.
