You’re probably thinking how the heck can you pair flannel with fur. Well, I’m here to show and tell you that it is possible. I enjoy wearing fur, but I only wear vintage fur (I don’t have anything to do with current animal cruelty). I feel like vintage fur is well done and took time to make, while modern day fur is processed so quickly. Also, when it comes to flannels, I usually buy they from a thrift store or flea market. The best looking flannels are the ones that have a worn out look. Fashion history has shown us that fur is more high end while plaid flannels are more on the casual side. That is exactly why I decided to bring the two together. Fashion stems from different cultural and financial backgrounds and it’s cool when they come together because that is how style is created.

I’ve never seen anyone rock a plaid flannel with fur , but it gave me a tomboy chic vibe. Pairing a flannel and some ripped jeans is an everyday look, but once the fur is added, it takes the look from casual to casual chic. If you really want to dress the look up, you can add cool funky sunglasses. The more daring you become with your wardrobe, the more you begin to turn heads. Thought provoking looks are always the ones that inspire others!

       SHOP MY LOOK:

I recently took a weekend trip to Washington D.C. and I made it imperative to do some sight seeing. Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States but I didn’t know it also a capital for impeccable art. Growing up in a european and caribbean household I’ve always had a deep fascination with art. My mother and father collected different works of arts when I was a child and it was a trait I picked up. When I travel I enjoy going to museums and monuments. I have been blessed to travel both domestic and international. Having a French father, ever since I was a little girl I fell in love with Paris. I love the fashion, architecture, food, and one of the most famous attractions, The Louvre Museum. The Louvre is a big “must see” when in Paris because of the Louvre pyramid, but the museum contains amazing pieces of artwork. At night, the pyramid lights up and has a red light that beams down the center, total Harry Potter vibes. If you’re ever in the D.C. area, I highly suggest visiting the reflective pyramid that is located right across the street from the National Mall Art Museum (east building). The pyramid is so beautiful that it allows you to feel like you are in Paris for a few moments, for me it was a few hours (haha!). It isn’t as grand and big as The Louvre Pyramid but it is definitely a site to see.
