PERFECT 1950’S CURLY LAMB FUR COAT

img_2466

Gorgeous, gorgeous coat in PERFECT condition!  Not as over-the-top as most fur coats, it’s very versatile and still chic and elegant as can be.

All the original closure toggles and hooks are there; the original owner’s initials sewn inside.  I’ll love this for a long time.  In fact, I’m wearing it tonight for a dinner out!

MY BEAUTIFUL, SEXY, FRENCH – INSPIRED MID – CENTURY WINTER COAT WITH FUR

MY BEAUTIFUL, SEXY, FRENCH - INSPIRED MID - CENTURY WINTER COAT WITH FUR

This is one of my very favorite coats because I LOVE the nipped waist and big, feminine collar. Really shows off the face and enhances your figure.

The mid-blue is nice, too. Not as many coats were made in this color as in the neutrals: black, brown, navy and grey. They’re all gorgeous, but this one is special. Remember, ONLY true vintage or faux fur are humane. Buying modern fur supports the cruel market.

Rarely have I seen a style like this – it is an unusual find. But, those are always the most intriguing . . . .. .. . . . . . . . . .

These sisters look like the real deal, but the jacket on the left is a faux fur. I’ll show more of them later.

The fakes made in the Fifties are of excellent quality and, like many now, require a second look and a touch to be sure. Sometimes even the touch doesn’t completely convince!

Usually, if not always, these lookalikes are made by furriers who sew them and finish them in much the same way as the true furs. The linings are really beautiful, as well as the fasteners, and sometimes the owner’s initials are sewn inside, too – just like the real thing.

So much better for our furry friends! These days you can buy almost any type of imitation fur in a completely convincing version. Don’t be seduced by cute little sweaters or jackets with just a bit of real fur trim. A lot of that comes from China now and I’ve read that their practices in the fur trade can be horrendous. . . . . . . . . .
