"Pubic" Humiliation

"What do you call this look?" - A quasi-dreaded question I often get asked during my more "dressed up" days. I try to respond quickly to keep my answer honest, spontaneous, and hopefully funny. So I said "Winter Bar Mitzvah". Perhaps my mind was fixated on the fact that my wide-brimmed hat resembled Hasidic Jewish head-wear, while bundling up with fluffy textures like this Mongolian fur collar that looks like eighties pubic hair casually draped over my shoulders. I then displayed an awkward smile and uttered the words Mazel Tov because it was the only Hebrew phrase that I knew and was appropriate, especially after asking if I looked like a giant clump of pubes?
hat MAISON MICHEL, sunglasses CÉLINE, ear piece, bracelet & bag GIVENCHY, fur jacket ATTIQUEUE, fur collar ZARA, top & necklace LANVIN, trousers ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, shoes ACNE, bracelet ASOS, rings MAWI

P.S. Big congrats once again to beautiful and talented Rowan Reiding of Red Reiding Hood from The Netherlands for winning The Provoker's Maison Martin Margiela Giveaway, thanks for sending in these lovely shots.
