How I wear a faux fur gilet

How I wear my fake fur gilet

Grimaud is well known for its friendly village cats.


Faux fur gilets are fashionable this season probably due to the 70s trend for flared jeans, fringes and the general hippie vibe! I have not worn one of these for many years despite the fact that every other woman in St. Tropez seems to own one. I have a feeling that they never stopped wearing them and many are the original. They tend to team them with skinny jeans and cowboy style boots!

    Blue is definitely your color! I’m seeing fur vests a lot now in the States, even in the South where I live. If it gets cold enough here in ‘Hotlanta’, I might buy one.

    Love it all ! Especially the fedora, you have inspired me to wear mine, bought in a pop up shop in Bath last year and didn’t get round to wearing.

    Josephine, you look fab! The grey colours of the gilet and the sweater look gorgeous with your hair.

    Josephine I’m so pleased I’ve seen you in the Hope fur gilet… It’s stunning on you! I went to a pop-up boutique they held here in Devon in the week (what a lovely bunch all the team are!!) and I tried on the gilet too – it’s sooooo delicious.

    My sister came and we had fun trying everything on, so many beautiful pieces that are so tactile and lovely, aren’t there…?

    Have a great weekend sweetie :))

    I love that sweater! I have a “thing” for grey/blue and that sweater is amazing, and the neckline looks so flattering! Great post!
