Ladies is Pimps, too…

Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later? You might think a shag coat is an unrealistic item that will just sit in your closet collecting even more fuzz, but you’d be wrong. Once you have one, the answer is always now. I bought my faux fur shag coat from LF Stores in 2011, and it’s been an essential part of my fall/winter experience ever since, to the point where I stare at it longingly during spring and summer. Why? Because the right shag coat can evoke the spirit of Cruella DeVille, a gangster rap star AND Kurt Cobain in the most deliciously weird way. The shag coat is a conversation starter: you will find yourself talking to more strangers whilst rocking your shag—and (WARNING) being touched by them, too.1Q1A5581Here I am in another American Apparel oversized chiffon button-up, tied up to show just a sliver of skin over my Urban Outfitters harem trousers.1Q1A5585
