Fashion: Inspired by ‘Glamour of the Gods’ – fur collars

Posted on Updated on


I promised you some changes in the ‘fashion department’ here on my blog. Instead of a weekly outfit, I want to be more diverse concerning fashion. I will show you what inspires me, I will give you styling and shopping tips, I will keep you posted on trends and so much more!Mind, I will definitely not say goodbye to outfit pictures. I will keep on posting them on my Instagram account (check here) and regularly I will do a summary of my IG outfit pictures here on ‘the good, the fab and the lovely’.

This first fashionpost ‘new style’ is all about inspiration… ‘Inspired by’ will be a recurring topic. Once in a while I will tell you what inspires me fashion-wise. And that can be all sorts of things… not just a fashion magazine, runway pictures or the things I see in the shops. I can also be inspired by books, art, music, nature, events, exhibitions, street style,… the list is endless!

Today’s post is about the inspiration I find in the book ‘Glamour of the Gods’. A couple of years ago I visited the exhibition ‘Glamour of the Gods’ in the National Portrait Gallery in London. This exhibition was a tribute to Hollywood portraits taken during the industry’s golden age, the period from 1920 to 1960.

I loved the exhibition so much and I bought the book that was sold  in the museum shop. I like browsing through it… what a glamourous age that was…

On the fabulous pictures that inspired me for today’s post you see Dolores Del Rio, Greta Garbo and Margaret Sullivan. All three stunningly beautiful ladies, all three talented actresses and all three looking fabulous in their fur collar… oh the glitter and glamour from Hollywood… don’t you just love that!

Fur collars are trending these days as well. Real or fake, whatever. It looks glam, it feels luxurious and it lifts your outfit to a next level!

A couple of months ago I showed you my dark blue winter coat with this beautiful (fake) fur collar. It just adds a healthy dosis of oomph to my coat, doesn’t it? You can see the entire outfitpost here.

And last winter I bought a fake fur jacket in a beautiful plum colour. You can read the entire post here, but below you see a picture of this jacket. Lovely isn’t it?! I also did a styling post on how to wear fake fur (see here).


As (fake) fur collars are hot and trendy right now, they’re bound to be reduced in price during the January -sales! So if you don’t have a fur collar yet, now is perhaps the time to add one to your wardrobe 🙂

You might want to go safe and buy white, cream, beige or black, but the coloured ones are bound to be at a higher reduction… your choice!
