Noughties Throwback • Skinny Jeans and a Cookie Monster Coat!

Skinny Levis, Dr Martens and a Faux Fur Jacket | Fake Fabulous | Winter

First and foremost...It Snowed.
Yes!

Winter, here in my corner of the globe, has been quite mild and a bit wet.
Sure, there have been plenty of cold and crisp days, which are lovely...
But no snow.

I've been longing for a dusting of the white stuff, and yesterday the snow finally fell.
Not a lot, but enough to cheer up a winter's day and to lift my spirits.

Casual but Cool • Bold Winter Outfit

Bold and Casual Winter Outfit | Fake Fabulous

Casual outfits don't have to be drab, dull and boring.
You CAN inject colour (and individual style) into a casual look without compromising on comfort... or warmth!

When the Wind Blows! Checks and Leather Winter Outfit

Checked Coat and Leather Trousers | Over 40 Winter Outfit | Fake Fabulous

It's blowing a hoolie out there!

I may have managed to get my layers to lie flat for a moment BUT, as my hair visibly confirms, there was a strong wind here in Scotland a few days ago (when I took these photos).
This mild winter's day had a fresh sting in its tail.
Cool but not too cold.
All cobwebs were blown into next week!

Layers were the order of the day.
No surprise there!
The need for layers is a given in winter.
In fact, it's the same for most days, regardless of the season!

What I Wore This Week | OOTD Diary

What I Wore | Diary of a 40+ Fashion Blogger | Fake Fabulous

Welcome to another glimpse into what I've been wearing during my real life.

(These outfits are from last week)

It was a typically winterish-coat-heavy week last week.
A few colder days.
A few milder days.
Some sunshine.
A little rain.
A typical mixed bag of Scottish delights.
{No snow though 😞.}

Despite the lack of snow, plenty of scarves, hats and cosy layers have been featuring in my looks.
Somedays I've even needed the added boost of a bright lippy to see me through the day.

I'm Selling on eBay!




Get your hands on some of the items featured at Fake Fabulous...

I'm clearing out some of my blogging storage boxes and I've decided to sell some of my very-much-loved pieces.

Many items are going to friends (if they'll fit and/or suit them) and to charity BUT the close-to-my-heart, super-special items (that won't suit friends) are heading to eBay.
Simply because I can't bear to see them bagged up and sent into the unknown.
I need to know that someone has searched, found and wanted them.
Off to a new home to be loved again.
Sustainable fashion at it's best!

Call me a sentimental fool but I do get a bit attached to certain items... especially those one-of-a-kind pieces.
Vintage knits, coats and shoes especially.
I find it hard to say goodbye.

Spring Trends Inspo | Bold Double Leather Winter Outfit

Spring Trend inspired Winter Outfit | Double Leather & Faux Fur

Welcome to the first outfit post of 2020.
10 days into the month and no outfits?!
What's been going on?

I've not been in a position to take outfit photos for a few weeks, which has been so hard.
I've really missed sharing these looks with you.
It feels good to be back!

I hope you've had a great start to 2020.

Why I've Stopped using AFFILIATE LINKS... the truth!

Why I've stopped using Affiliate Links | Fake Fabulous

New Year.
New Decade.
New Attitude.

You may have noticed that it's been a LONG time since I shared any affiliate links here at Fake Fabulous.
They've been absent for quite a while.

No "Shop the Look" section.
Hardly any clickable links to the products I've worn.
In fact, most of my outfits have been full of charity shopped pieces or old bits and bobs I've had for aeons!

You may be wondering what's going on?
