Fur 2 (Dressy)

Fur for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version

Quote of the day: “To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.” Denis Waitley

As I stated in the last post (fur for a casual day, here), most of us tend to think of wearing our fluffy garments for a more formal occasion. Since our highlighted items are very different in nature, I tried to place them all in a dressy look. And as you can see in the pictures, all of our pieces came in slightly different color schemes (brownish, blackish, & greyish)!

    I love everything about these looks – all of them. The fur-collared jacket is amazing. So happy to have found this site. Have been looking high and low for a fashion blog featuring real people that aren’t in their twenties.

      Thanks for the kind words, Tess. Yes, mom, Nancy & I are definitely real people—we have scars, extra padding and fabulous wrinkles!! And “sale” is one of my favorite words!! I hope you enjoy my format!

  • Okay…seriously??!! You are KILLIN’ it in this style series!! Yours is sexy (in a covered up, totally appropriate way) Nancy looks modern and fresh and your mom looks like a Grand Dame. Love it!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks…but let me give credit to the fur! Just like with chocolate, it makes everything better!!!

  • Oooh, I love these stylings even more than the casual – and I loved those! Class all the way, ladies. Your boots look fabulous with the jacket, Jodie, Nancy’s vest makes her outfit uber modern and stylist and your Mum radiates understated elegance. I feel you all need to go to a swanky hotel for afternoon tea!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s a fabulous idea!! Afternoon tea is my absolute favorite!

  • always love seeing the three versions you post.

    Hope to see you at a Labour of Fashion linkup.
