Fur and leather

Today for the 'Take one, pass it on' challenge the repeat item was a fur vest. You can read about this challenge here.
I took these photos as a blizzard was just starting, so all of those white spots are snowflakes.
My camera is not good enough to show the details of my black outfit, but I hope you can still see them. I wore a black military jacket and vest, a black turtleneck sweater, black leather pants and socks, with a black purse and gloves...does this remind you of scary stories about a dark, dark room?...but actually I think my outfit is very cute and no so scary.

What I'm wearing:
fur vest - no name (similar herehere and here)
jacket - NY & Co (similar here and here)
sweater -Macy's (similar herehere and here)
leather pants - H&M here and similar here
booties - London Rebel (similar here, here and here)
gloves - old, no name(similar here and here)
purse -Coach (similar herehere and here)
beanie - H&M (similar here and here)
socks - no name (similar here)

This French song 'Tombe la neige' came to mind as the snow began to fall.

I found that for some reason I couldn't reply to a comment on my own blog. My reply button just disappeared. I want to let you know that I always appreciate the time out of your day for visiting my blog and every comment that you leave here. I can't thank you enough,

Fur and leather look amazing together. I only have a fur coat and a leather jacket so I have never worn fur and leather together like this. You look great.

I just perused through several of your posts, and you have a very interesting style. I love this all black outfit! But I like several of the outfits you posted as well. Have a good evening!

Oh I love that fur vest! I think the length is great! And those leather leggings are a great fit too! Thanks for sharing this with Celebrate Southern last week! xoxo
