Now before you get your kitty cranked up about my language please note from Wikipedia:

‘”la Mode’, in French, simply means fashion. Also, the word ‘fuck‘ in Quebec French has a less harsh connotation than that of the English word ‘fuck’, with a meaning something closer to ‘heck’. Therefore, ‘Fuck la Mode’, in English, is closer to ‘to heck with fashion’ than ‘fuck fashion’. ”

So a few months ago I’m strolling around Paris (desperately seeking Starbucks like any good N. American in a European capital) and I begin to notice a curiosity.  A healthy 50% of the French are wearing fur on their heads.  Now it doesn’t take a genius to inform you that fashion begins here and then trickles over the pond.  My bet is that many of you are already wearing these through the wild winters in places like Saskatchewan…  and those of you who haven’t clamped a furry fox to your tete – get ready.

Here’s a taste of what’s to come…

 

Of course you can always improvise with whatever you have around the house as well – it’s most important that you keep your ears covered.

My personal favorite “look of the year” is au natural. I do in fact endorse Just Say Yes to Fur… as long as it looks like this:
