Monsters Inc. :: Blue faux fur & Whimsy

by wendy

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  It’s a tad bit cold in LA right now.  The temperature dropped significantly and it’s fantastic.  To be honest with you, I would have never thought of getting a faux fur vest a few years ago.  And to top it off, I would be out of my mind to even consider an ocean color faux fur coat!

Back when I was a financial consultant, the most experimental thing I got were purple pumps.  And that was reaching out of my comfort zone.  Partly because I wanted to fit in, and also due to the fact that my professional career at the time didn’t encourage fashion experimentations, I stuck to what I knew – wearing mostly black, cream, and brown.  After working in the financial industry for many years, I realized it was not for me.  I quit and wanted to do something more creative.  I started playing with colors, textures, and patterns more.  It was liberating!  A sense of freedom I never felt before.  I discovered that fashion was about feeling… what I wore can alter my mood, certain colors will lift my spirits, and most importantly, there was always a dash of humor mixed in.  And in the true spirit of whimsy, this blue faux fur coat reminds me of Monsters Inc., one of my favorite films.  Here’s my tribute to Sulley, the top scarer of Monstropolis…

Thank you so much for reading!
