leather jacket: primark
fur stole: topshop (off this jacket)
dress: new look
necklace: topman
nails: models own bubblegum *

I'd been eyeing this jacket up on River Island for a while but its way out my price range! Thought I'd just make it myself using things I already had. I've had the Primark jacket for years now, and the collar on my coat of dreams is detachable so with a bit of creativity I interpreted it for myself. I think fur collars and leather make me feel like a long lost Olsen (I wish!)

Today I've been playing with my new nail art pens, I've changed my nails about three times today before deciding on my go-to fail safe pink nails. Probably going to add some gems and pearls to it to intensify the tackiness!

  5. Really clever to pair the fur of the coat with the jacket! I love the look of leather and fur too, but would have never thought about doing this... Oh well!

  24. Haha! I love how you spend so much time over your nails. I wish I had that creativity with my nails. I just wear the same colour all week until it's chipping away. Yours always look so great. Loving the mix of fur and leather- perfect A/W wear. You always get it right x

  27. Your version beats the River Island one hands down! I was even going to ask you where you got your awesomeness of a jacket from but after reading, learnt it was a DIY job. It's absolutely stunning and the fur actually looks like a part of the jacket, like it was made that way - so well done you :) x x

  28. Love the nail colour, might have to get it if it's still available! xo

  29. I actually prefer your version of the jacket! It looks great, and you are gorgeous as always:)
    Hope you are doing well <3

  32. Very resourceful! Worth it too, I think your jacket is actually nicer than the River Island one. :o
