I remember when i was a little girl my mom used to wear a fur hat with a floor length fur jacket (you couldn't even see her hight heel boots). Actually every woman in Belarus (or Russia) was trying to get one of these hats. Having a fur hat and (!) a jacket was a sign of some sort of wealthiness. You know i'm talking an actual fur! And since there were no runways, or boutiques, or any kind of fashion back then women were being creative and making up their own style. My dad by the way had the same exact hat as my mom did, except for his was a lot bigger:)
I've been wanting to get a fur hat (fake fur obviously) for a long time, and when i tried one on few days ago i didn't take it off, just had to have it. All my friends were saying that i looked very "Russia" in it. To me it is a significant feature of a military style i'm becoming obsessed with this season (i have a feeling it is going to be BIG). But i don't mind combining these two very strong and similar in a way styles.
