I mentioned earlier this week here that I have a slightly crazy parka obsession – which is how I ended up buying a jacket intended for use next winter a few weeks ago, just as the weather was really beginning to heat up for spring here.
I have been obsessed with finding the perfect Mr & Mrs Furs jacket ever since I saw Cecilia’s in her interview – I love fur but find that many styles are too formal for me. Mr. & Mrs. Furs – which takes vintage US military parkas and then lines them with all kinds of beautiful luxurious materials – is perfect for my lifestyle. You can see one of their classic designs here, on Giovanna Battaglia:

I finally had the opportunity to choose among of a few of their parkas for purchase and ended up with this one below, the same one as beautiful Cecilia’s. This baby is WARM.
Mr. & Mrs. Furs parka
It’s kind of a loony item for me in California but I love it! Definitely a “crazy passion” purchase for me, have you had any of those? Do you ever regret them? Where are they now?
