Oddest Post Title Yet: Fur and the PRB

What’s the perfect accessory for the bleakness of winter? A little dash of faux fur of course!






coat: thrifted, F21 / faux fur collar: F21 


Anyone else a Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood super fan? Well, feast your eyes on this editorial from the December 2011 edition of American Vogue featuring Saoirse Ronan posed in beautifully PRB-evocative shots by Steven Meisel.









And a few of my favorite PRB masterpieces … stunning.

Loving the fur collar. I had never heard of PRB. Does that make me a bad person? I am a fan now. Those images blew me away!

Rossetti captured my heart when I was a very little girl. I wanted to be Ophelia, I think, because of him.

And oh I WANT that collar. Like bad.

Nothing like a great faux fur stole for the winter to brighten up any coat, looks lovely!

This editorial is amazing, one of the best I've ever seen. Speaking of amazing, I love the jacket! You found it thrifting?! Wowzas, I'm starting to think that thrifting is one of the best things ever.

I cannot make faux (or real) fur work in my wardrobe. Like... at all. So I'm suitably impressed that you can!

Wow, I can't believe how much Saoirse has grown up! I didn't recognize it was her until the third photo. Superb jacket by the way. :)

faux fur does make everything better. I really love those pics of Saoirse Ronan. She is such a beautiful and talented girl. Did you see her in Hanna? Brilliant.

I love the pre-raphaelite's work, thank you for bringing this photoshoot to my attention, it's incredible. Saoirse makes a great Elizabeth Siddal.
