Ice Queen.

06:58




faux fur bomber jacket and hat - Topshop
Natsumi metallic brocade top - Missguided
faux leather skirt - Dorothy Perkins
platform boots - H&M

Part snow queen (think Elsa from Frozen) and part 40s femme fatale, this is the outfit that I wore on my first full day in Paris. I've been embroiled in a love story with coloured fur for quite a long time now as I think it provides the perfect balance between old school and modern, by mixing a classically stylish fabric with bright popping colours or pastels that brings it into the street-style-generation of 2013. The jacket looks different depending on the light - in some photos from other times I have worn it it looks more aqua blue but in reality it is a cool toned icy mint. This is a colour I wouldn't usually go for but combined with wintery silvers and whites and contrasted with black it works a treat for the winter months. As the jacket is so voluminous I really decided to play on the textures of the outfit by pairing the faux fur with a sleek black leather skirt and bag. The top also gives an interesting texture - slightly stiff and boxy it may be but that gives off a slightly more boyish and casual air that perfectly contrasts the OTT glamour of the jacket. To balance out the big fur I opted for a big black hat to add to the drama as well as the chunky H&M platform booties that have become my go to shoe - they work just as well with a pair of trousers as they do with a skirt or dress. 

As I was in Paris when taking these outfit photos, here are a few snaps from the trip. Enjoy!
