Faux fur from Helen Moore is the best winter (and beyond) accessory for a vintage girl. And if you wonder who would wear faux fur in the summer, wonder no more. I would wear it regardless of the season.
Their sumptuous and very 1930s-looking Slim Vixen scarf is the perfect example, as it would make for an ideal addition to a vintage floor-length evening gown.
It would also look divine paired with a couture blouse with short sleeves and a longer 1940s skirt. I’ve partnered with Helen Moore to show you my favourite winter accessories.

Luxury Faux Fur from Helen Moore
I have already mentioned this British brand, synonymous with luxury faux fur, in my article ‘Winter essentials for the vintage girl’. If you haven’t read it yet, perhaps take a look at it, as it has a lot of tips on how to stay warm during the winter season without compromising the vintage look!

But I wanted to return to reviewing them again now, as winter is still with us and it’s so refreshing to finally find a contemporary brand, that creates beauteous and luxurious, vintage-inspired faux fur accessories, that will keep you warm.
Everything is designed and hand-made in Devon, the Helen Moore brand being a family-run business, which explains perhaps why so much attention is paid to every detail, resulting in very happy customers and devoted fans, who, like me, will always return for more!
Even though there are many contemporary pieces in Helen Moore’s collections, perfect for the modern woman, as a vintage girl I’m obviously drawn to vintage-inspired accessories. I’m told that my favourite Slim Vixen Scarf, was based on a fox fur that Helen’s mother wore.
Same as the lovely Tippet scarf, obviously at that time made of real fur. As I am someone who chooses not to wear real fur, to find a real purveyor of faux fur is a sheer delight. And I love that the brand produces breathtaking, warm pieces that are without a doubt the perfect alternative for those opposed to wearing real fur.

Helen Moore is the perfect choice for a vintage vixen.

You look stunning and out of this world!
Also, the faux fur is gorgeous and I don’t understand why anyone would want to wear real fur!
