Just a little preface: This post will show a lot of vintage fur. To read my views on fur please read this post. Please also note that unkind comments will be deleted from the comments section.
Long time readers of my blog will remember an annual event that Julie of FabGabs Vintage would put on, called Fur & Feathers, which I attended multiple times during the time I lived in Portland. Fur & Feathers was boasted as a time when vintage lovers could break out their beloved pieces that featured fur and feathers, hence the name, as well as incorporate items of alligator or snake, or other wearable items derived from animals, insects, etc. When January came around in 2015 I saw many of my vintage loving Portland friends attending the luncheon and I bemoaned missing out on the event. But in the last year I have met a slew of vintage lovers here, and I was able to put together the first ever Fur & Feathers: Los Angeles! We wanted to include the men folk as well, so prints were also encouraged, and the men came out wearing fun ties featuring birds, feathers and other animals!
In Portland, the Fur & Feathers Luncheon was held at Huber’s, Portland’s oldest restaurant, but for LA I decided the newly remodeled Clifton’s would be quite fitting because it is home to quite a few pieces of taxidermy.
We had an awesome turn out, I think we had 22 people! Including friend and fellow blogger, Christine of Smitten. And we received quite a lot compliments, which is always wonderful. I can’t wait to do this again next year!
