I could not help but title this post the way I felt- like Anna Karenina. Without her Vronsky and all that drama, of course. But it is one of my favorite books and I love the latest film adaptation with Keira Knightley. I like her since she made her debut in Bend it like Beckham.

When my mother-in-law allowed me to shoot her beautiful fur coat, I could not be more happier. As much as I don’t look like a typical Czech girl (who are mostly blonde-haired and fair-skinned), I can’t hide my affinity to fur. Like Russia, the Czech Republic is super cold in winter and we wear fur.

Forgive me for generalizing but I read somewhere that men choose their wives based on their mother and women choose husbands based on what they liked in their father. I can clearly see that similarity with Alex’s mom. And more and more, Alex keeps saying that I react the same, make the same faces and love the same things…well, we are both Libras so here you go!

That being said, I love my mother-in-law’s fur collection and her style. This coat was custom-made for her in Italy 50 years ago and it looks like new. It is quite heavy and I can imagine wearing it for a short period of time, like when we go to the opera. And what can be more theatrical than “Aida”, right?  I told you, if you want to channel Anna Karenina, dress the part!

OUTFIT:

Vintage fur coat and hat (love this faux fur alternative), Wolford Matte Opaque Tights, Fendi shades, Chanel bag and New Look sandals (Love these and this crystal embellished sandal).

I immediately thought of Anna Karenina when I saw this outfit! I loved the book, but I have yet to watch the entire movie. (I have no doubt Keira Knightley was amazing!) Your mother-in-law’s coat is out-of-this-world beautiful – wow! Love the hat too. Being from the Northern part of the United States – I am all about things that keep me warm too, 🙂
